This is our final shrine project blog as we speed towards our re-opening and re-dedication celebration. It’s been quite a journey, which although has had it’s challenges, has been very inspiring and rewarding. We’re spending our last week finishing off the smaller details, getting the areas cleaned, planning for our sangha visitors to our dedication day on Saturday. Fundraising will continue as we still need to support the ongoing works, which should include a wheelchair platform lift, garden decking and better access to the centre, for those with disabilities or mobility issues. So far, we’ve managed to raise £2477.83 (before Gift Aid) towards our £25k total, thank you so much to all who have donated.

Our Saturday event is set to be a significant part of our centre’s history and part of our ongoing transformation. With talks, meditation, re-dedication, shared lunch and friends past and present, there will be plenty of opportunity to relax, reminisce and enjoy the space. The day is free to attend and there will be opportunities to give dana throughout the day, to support the centre, so please consider giving generously.

We look forward to seeing you all there
