Thank You and Well Done!

A big thank you and well done to everyone who attended our Songkran festival and made it such a special day.

The sun came out to warm us all as we took the Refuges and Precepts, offered food to the monks, tucked into the delicious Thai food, and then paid our respects to the Buddha and Sangha in the traditional way – by pouring water over the Buddha image and the monks’ hands.

The very generous donations for the day totalled £3,177.82. Adding the £605 that was donated at Khun Yod’s restaurant in Nottingham on the Saturday, this means £3,782.82 was raised at the weekend. Anumodana and well done to everyone who contributed!

The renovation appeal is going very well too. So far we have raised over £7,300. Fantastic!
