BBC Asian Network’s Harpreet Kaur, who was a close friend of Mr Saundh’ and will be presenting the event, said: “Minda was a man who would not only looked out for his family and friends, but also went the extra mile for those who needed help, who he didn’t even know on a personal level.

“This event has been put together for that very reason, the one thing Minda taught us himself, which was to give more than you take.

“We are hoping to raise as much money as we can for The British Heart Foundation and hope to see many of you there to help raise awareness as well as celebrate such a wonderful man’s life.”
