What happens to your donation?
What it costs
Actual monthly costs based on spending for our financial year ending May 2022. The average monthly cost of running the centre’s activities was £4887 and our average monthly income was £2971. This is obviously a large discrepancy between outgoings and incomings, but was part of a planned transition: The centre decided to employ a full-time centre manager, who also manages the Yoga Studio. Our Centre manager does a fantastic job at that, and raising the profile of the Centre more generally, so our current financial position is somewhat more positive than the above numbers, though the centre is still operating at a net loss.
