Charity Connections

The UK’s new King Charles III was specially presented with a copy of my book, The Irish Raj, and this is a photo of him holding my book!…He was the patron of the Arpana hospital in north India to which I gave all my book royalties, and my GP brother in the blue suit gave him a copy when he visited there.



In May 2013, I made a £3000 donation to the Karen Woo Foundation, which was set up in memory of Dr Karen Woo, a UCL-trained doctor who was killed by terrorists in Afghanistan while serving the poor and needy there. The donation was accepted by Lynn Woo, Karen’s mother, in front of the Gandhi statue in Tavistock Gardens, London. I drew inspiration from the wonderful example set by Karen Woo.

In April 2024, I sent the UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak a copy of my book, How to Live like Gandhi, and he kindly replied above via his Personal Assistant.


In April 2013, I donated an electronic keyboard to the Jewish School for Girls in Calcutta, India. This was in memory of Shirin and Sharmin Alam, 7-year old twin girls who were pupils at the school, and who in May 2010 died in a railway disaster caused by terrorists. Their story touched my heart, and I promised that if I ever set foot in Calcutta I would make a donation in their memory. In April 2013, I happened to be in Calcutta as part of a lecture tour in India.Jewish School donation made by London Memory Clinic Neuro Psychologist Professor Narinder Kapur

Regarding the Nurse Amin Abdullah Award scheme – Mr Amin was an award-winning nurse at Charing Cross Hospital, London, part of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. In February 2016, after going through an unfair “kangaroo court” dismissal process, he burned himself to death outside Kensington Palace. A subsequent independent inquiry resulted in apologies from the trust and major changes to disciplinary procedures across the NHS. In collaboration with the Royal College of Nursing Foundation, Mr Amin’s partner, Terry Skitmore, and I have set up a Nurse Amin Abdullah Award scheme to reward those nurses in the UK who do the most to promote staff wellbeing in the workplace. We donated £10,000 to fund the scheme for 10 years. The award is worth £1,000, and is funded initially for 15 years, thanks to a further £5,000 donation from Nathan Illman, who has set up a nurse wellbeing mission.

Professor Kapur and Amin’s partner presented the first Amin Abdullah nursing award at the May 9, 2024 Royal College of Nursing Foundation award ceremony. Also present in the picture is the award winner, Mei Chen. Next to Professor Kapur is Amin’s partner, Terry Skitmore, and on the far right is Reverend Richard Coles, who was compere for the evening.
