The following has been shared by an Oshwal Member but please note the following is not organised by Oshwal Association of the UK

At the end of 2019, Dhiren Meghji Shah was diagnosed with a rare neurological condition which onset suddenly and progressed rapidly. He died just a few months later (7 Feb 2020). Like most conditions which impact the brain, there was no cure available.

Dhiren was himself passionate about charitable initiatives and dedicated much of his spare time to supporting them including as a member of the Oshwal Board of Advisers (2011-2017), as Oshwal Treasurer (2018-2020) and as Shishukunj Treasurer (1997-2000).

It is in his memory, that we are raising funds for the National Brain Appeal to support the 1 in 6 affected by a neurological condition. Money raised will help to:

1) further vital research in this field (in the hope that cures can be found); and
2) support the care of neurology patients across the UK.

The National Brain Appeal supports those affected by strokes, multiple sclerosis, brain tumours, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries, prion disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s and more.
