Covid 19 Fundraiser

Why we need your help

Covid 19 has forced MBC to close its doors for a large part of this year.  Whilst we've done everything we possibly can to cut costs and save money, like many small charities, we've lost significant income whilst we've had to keep the centre closed. Income from our bookshop, room hire services, courses and business rents.  Inspite of that, we have managed to offer dozens of events online whilst finding creative ways to support each other.
Although there is hopeful news on the horizon with potential vaccines, we know this will take time to roll out to the community at large, meaning we face uncertain months ahead come Spring, when the furlough scheme ends.
We believe the Buddhist Centre has so much to offer both the Northern Quarter business community and the people of Manchester.  In these times of uncertainty, change and loss, Buddhist teachings direct us to the truth that everything is impermanent and that we can only hope to cope with such bewildering change, when we come together to support each other with love and compassion.
Please donate to help secure Manchester Buddhist Centre's future so that we can be here to support you,  and all the people of Manchester as we recover from this traumatic collective experience.
 The Buddhist Centre is a place of refuge for anyone who needs it.  People with phsyical and mental health issues rely on us as a place of safety and kindness.  They need us more than ever now.
Please help us keep going by donating now.
Thank you for your generosity.

Covid-19 has forced Manchester Buddhist Centre to close its doors for much of the year and we face uncertain months ahead. We've done everything possible to cut costs, but like many small charities, we've lost significant income. Our bookshop, room hire, courses and business rents have all been hit, but we've still offered hundreds of events online whilst finding creative ways to support each other and grow our community.

This is from the sale of jewellery left by my good friend Justine, who died last year at the age of 91. She was always interested to hear about the activities of the Buddhist Centre and wanted me to give the proceeds of the sale of her jewellery to MBC A
