Manchester, 23 May 2017. Sikh temples [Gurdwaras] in Manchester are offering shelter to those affected by the deadly terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert on Monday.

The four nearby Gurdwaras, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara Educational and Cultural Centre, Gurdwara Sri Guru Harkrishan Sahib, Dasmesh Sikh Temple and Central Gurdwara Manchester Gurudwara, all kept their doors open for victims through the night.

“Sikh Temples in Manchester, UK offering food & accommodation. They are open for ALL people,” said Harjinder Kukreja in a Tweet, posting the address of Sikh temples located in the area.

Many other local people took to Twitter to offer those affected beds for the night, using the hastag #RoomForManchester.

Taxi drivers offered free lifts, and several hotels and venues in the city centre were also reported to be offering space for those stranded in the city centre.
