Keeping York Buddhist Group Going…Through Generosity…
We operate on a ‘take what you need, give what you can’ basis so we don’t charge for classes as such, however we do need to buy equipment, tea and coffee and pay a weekly room rental so we ask those who are able, to donate as generously as they can.
