As a Sangha we want to help alleviate the suffering that is occurring in Ukraine. It would be inefficient for us to collect money and pass it on ourselves, not least because this removes any opportunity to add Gift Aid to a donation. For the time being we will therefore not be collecting donations at our meetings but asking everyone to make a contribution directly to the Disasters Emergency Committee, Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. We can do this for a while but will eventually need to return to asking for donations to cover the cost of renting the church. In the medium term we expect the rent to go up because of the increase in fuel prices – partially caused by the conflict. Let’s give something while we can.
Breathing in I know you are suffering.
Breathing out I am here with you.
