In his final days 76-year-old Har Datt Didi was treated by Marie Curie Cancer Care. His son was so thankful of the treatment he received that he decided to cycle from Cardiff to Southall to raise money for the charity.

Southall has earned the nickname ‘Little India’ owing to its large Asian population but it is also a model example of different cultures, backgrounds and faiths co-existing together. With more investment in the area than ever before and a housing boom expected to coincide with the Crossrail project, Southall is on the rise.
