Make a Difference for Majit

If you live in the Hammersmith Grove area, you know Manjit Rana. Part of the furniture in this beautiful spot, she and her family have owned and run the Tipsy Toad for almost three decades. Very sadly, Manjit had a very bad fall and is now in St Mary’s Hospital Paddington with a broken neck. She is making a slow recovery. Manjit is well known and widely respected within our village; the consensus is most residents would like to help in some way. A group of neighbours have set up a fund for friends and locals to help Manjit and her family during this difficult time. The GoFundMe site enables the community to raise funds for Manjit without having to pay a great deal in fees. We understand donations will go to her eldest son.

Manjit was famously quoted as saying, “Occasionally people will come to the door and there is a sign outside that says ‘We’re Closed.’ It means I am usually delivering to our senior citizens or the infirm who are unable to pop down to the shop for essentials. I found this is a way of giving back to the community. We truly love our customers.”

This wonderful woman has a special place in our hearts. Our well wishes and prayers are with her and her family. We’ve donated – have you?
