  • Need

    Need

    All the money raised will be split between Triratna Leeds Buddhist Centre and the Karuna Trust. Donations made to Triratna Leeds will go towards redecorating the Centre and making it an even more beautiful space for people to practice meditation and Buddhism over the coming years.

    Solution

    Your money will initially go to the Triratna Community (Leeds) but 50% of the proceeds will in turn be donated to the Karuna Trust and will go towards the projects which they are running to lift some of the poorest people in India out of their poverty. (see www.karuna.org for details), delivering dignity through education, health and cultural projects.

  • Impact

    Impact

    Some of the facilities of Leeds Buddhist Centre are badly in need of decorating to bring them up to the beautiful standard of the rest of the premises.

    The money for the Karuna Trust will help to fund important projects which are already ongoing, bringing much needed support to disadvantaged communities in India and elsewhere.

    Risk

    There is a risk that some of the runners taking part may not start, or complete the course. However, they will do their best!

    Reporting

    There will be a report in our community newsletter (you can sign up at www.leedsbuddhistcentre.org) and we will write after the event to all donors who leave their email address
