The Precious Jewel Appeal
Keep the West London Buddhist Centre Shining
The Centre continues to be a light-giving jewel through these troubled times, for the West London community and beyond. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we closed to the public in March 2020 and have moved all our activities online for the time being. We are delighted to keep offering classes and retreats, supporting our thriving and diverse community to stay connected and deepen personal practice, whether that’s meditation, mindfulness or bodywork.
Despite our ongoing fundraising efforts and the generosity of those attending online events, Covid-19 and lockdowns have brought severe challenges and a drop in our income, exacerbating pre-existing financial difficulties. The Centre faces unsustainable losses if we do not act.
We have launched the Precious Jewel Appeal to raise £50,000 by mid-March 2021. You can track our progress on the fundraising campaign thermometer below.
Please give what you can using our donation form below.
We have a thriving and diverse community, and you do not need to identify as Buddhist to join in our events – just an open mind and a willingness to explore!
We’ve offered the majority of our events on a donation basis during this crisis. If you are able to, please consider making an additional donation to our Precious Jewel Appeal to ensure we can keep offering these teachings and maintain our Centre into the future.
