A Slough based charity's CEO was presented with a giant cake depicting him as a knight - when a new showroom was unveiled in Slough.

To mark the opening of the new Oak Furnitureland store in Slough, Ravi Singh from the charity Khalsa Aid was presented with the confectionery creation - which depicted him in cake form as a modern-day knight riding on a horse delivering food to those in need.

Khalsa Aid supports Langar Aid, a social initiative project which focuses on feeding the local community. Every Tuesday in Slough town centre, the charity offers free hot meal to homeless people in the town.

Gurpreet Jass, Oak Furnitureland’s Slough Store manager says: “The cake structure of Ravi Singh depicted as a modern-day knight on horseback is our way of saying a big thank you to our Slough customers and the local community, and to show our support for Khalsa Aid and their community homeless feeding project.

“This is our first showroom in Slough and our 100th showroom nationwide. Reaching 100 stores is an exciting milestone for us and we are looking forward to servicing the local community for many years to come.”

Ravi Singh, CEO of Khalsa Aid, said “I am delighted that the Oak Furnitureland Slough store has decided to support our Langar Aid community feeding Project. It’s a crazy but wonderful idea to recreate me in cake and highlight our work in this way.

“Langar is a term used to describe the Sikh philosophy of a free kitchen where food is provided to all people regardless of background, ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender or social status. Langar Aid focuses on fighting hunger worldwide and we work collaboratively with organisations, governments and NGOs to coordinate and supply vital nutrition to people in times of need.”
