Skills Auction Friday 22nd Feb @ 7pm – All Welcome –

Skills Auction Friday 22nd February 7o clock

A reminder that we are holding a skills auction at the Buddhist Centre this Friday – following the great success we had with an auction last year. And are fundraising for the many ideas, projects and work on the building we wish to undertake to continue developing the centre and of course the sangha.

Please find the list of some of the Items on offer below!

The auction last year was a great success and the generosity of the sangha shone out, it was also an extremely enjoyable evening. We have received many generous offers and invite you to come along and enjoy! Please bring along family and friends.

Can you offer a skill? Still not too late! If so email myself: so we can add to our already extensive list. It’s a great opportunity to give something to others and benefit the future of the Buddhist Centre.
