A Beacon of Generosity & Community Leadership

Gurcharan Singh Chatwal, a pillar of the Punjabi community and a staunch supporter of Sikh causes, passed away at the age of 83 on 26th April 2024 . Known for his effusive personality and unwavering dedication, he leaves behind a legacy of generosity and service.

Throughout his life, Gurcharan Singh Chatwal championed various philanthropic endeavours, always lending a helping hand, whether through financial support or personal involvement. His leadership was evident in his roles as President of both the Pothohar Association UK and the Hounslow and Ealing Gurdwaras, where he tirelessly worked to uplift and unite his community.

One of his most memorable moments was hosting the late Queen Elizabeth during her visit to the Hounslow Gurdwara, a testament to his esteemed position within the Indian community in London. We were fortunate to present him with a medal to mark his past presidency of the Pothohar Association at our last AGM held in October 2023.

His absence will be keenly felt, as his compassionate and giving spirit touched the lives of many. Gurcharan Singh Chatwal’s legacy of kindness and dedication will continue to inspire generations to come. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
