We need to raise £5,000 to cover the costs of the newly installed central heating in our centre.
The new heating is making a huge difference. The centre is now warm and more comfortable; allowing everyone to focus more fully on the teachings and meditations during the classes and courses.
With your participation we can raise funds. The recently held Promise Auction, together with donations, has raised £1,300 so far. A great start to reaching our £5,000 fundraising target.
There are many excellent activities coming up where you can participate and give your support. Let us know if you would like to get involved.
