Skills Auction: Raising the Roof!
Info to date———–
We are holding a skills auction at the Buddhist Centre in March. We had one a couple of years ago and it was a great success in two ways it raised much needed money and was a great social event. This time we have something specific in mind, we need to raise the roof – literally! As the flat roof on the yoga studio, which is an integral part or our Centre is leaking and causing significant problems. Current estimates indicate it will cost approximately £6.000 to repair the roof will be then guaranteed for a good many years. In the past Padmasimha and Sagaradana have repaired it but it has now gone beyond that.
We are therefore hoping we can raise some money with a skills auction. The generosity of the sangha shone through last time we did this and the variety of skills on offer was diverse. I am therefore asking you to offer skills by emailing me at email@example.com. Also if anyone had any other suggestions for the evening I.e. vegan snacks for a break or helping with the evening itself get in touch.
Please remember to tell friends and family open to all. A list of what is available will be put out at a later date. I have written to a lot of people individually.
Can you offer a skill? if so get in touch and we can compile a list and ensure we have enough to offer as soon as possible. At previous auctions we have for example had: gardening, a glass panel, a diy day, a meal, massage, a portrait painted etc, I am sure you can think of others. It’s a great opportunity to give something to others and benefit the future of the Buddhist Centre.
An evening of Fun and Fundraising!
