What we are planning and envision for Grimsby. The long range goal and the short range goals
Grimsby needs a proper Pure Bhakti Hare Krishna Centre. We already have a proper center in mind which will become free in about two or three years from now. I am not going to disclose much information here, because only I know it will be available and I do now want to attract any undue attention from other interested parties, but what I can tell you, is that there is much free parking, enough space inside for up to 100 persons, a kitchen an all other facilities. The building is detached and almost central to the Grimsby town center ( a five minutes walk ) and obviously ideal to be a nice temple.
Benefits of just the free meditation classes we offer in more detail For you to see the value of helping us with your donation. This is just one of our activities and already it becomes clear why we need a center so urgently.
The small range goals
We are asking for kind sponsors to come forward and pledge any monthly unspecified amount towards our project, to be paid via direct debit / standing order, when we have secured the building in three years from now. The direct debit will be paid into our charity account. Of course you also have the option to start making your donations at any time before the due time.
