Fundraising Needs for the Centre
We are in need of your loving support of the Centre’s charitable work. In addition to much-needed fundraising for the earthquake re-building work, we need your help to meet operational expenses. Please will you help? We need your support so that the Centre can to continue to provide a peaceful, loving haven for you and for all who come.
Donations can be given in full or a partial amount. New items will be added as needs crop up, so please keep checking in. Please could you also keep the Centre in your prayers. It is going to be an adventurous year!
Thank you as always for your love and support.
Joyfully in Service,

We have been blessed to have a volunteer over the last couple of years who was able to rescue from her work bedding plants that would otherwise have ended up at the tip. However, she has moved onwards and upwards and we are now back to needing to raise funds for planting for color in time for the Easter Celebrations. Please will you help?
Easter Bedding Plants
We love to honor the sacred times of Easter and Christmas with a special flower display. As fresh flowers were costing $100 for each Satsanga, to help save money, the Centre bought some artificial flowers. However, these still need to be supplemented with either fresh flowers or additional artificial flowers. Please will you help?
A special project is underway for special events at the Centre including Easter and Christmas Satsangas and Initiation. We are working on various embroidered altar cloths and covers. The materials needed mainly include embroidery linen and lots of metallic thread. Please will you help?

We are happy to report that we have outgrown our old office and have moved into the Kowhai Room. At last we have the space we need. We discovered a problem, though! The light coming into the office was wreaking havic on our eyes and making it difficult to see the screens. A volunteer suggested roller blinds. They are ideal for the task and have made a world of difference. Please will you help?
Donation Received ~ Thank you!
Our annual subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud is soon due. We use the applications that come with this package to help us with all of our outreach and promotional work including nearly every aspect of our website design as well as facebook posts, posters, videos, and more. It is good that as an educational organization our subscription is 40% off the normal fee, but at $595, it is still a large expense for the Centre. Please will you help?

The tree surgeon said ‘it couldn’t be done’ without the expense and aid of a stump grinding machine. However, he hasn’t met David! Several trees in the front garden, most of which had self-sown, had become overgrown, leggy and unattractive. These have been removed (visit our recent blog post for the work in action) leaving a gaping hole. Similar work is needed around the front/pool gardens and we are raising funds for the replanting. Please will you help?
The Centre is in need of a quality vacuum cleaner. With all the vacuuming needed each week, we have found that the cheaper ones really don’t last, and cost more in the long run. We would like your help to invest in a quality machine that is quieter, has a good air filter, and very importantly, will last years and years. Please will you help?
Last but not least! It is that time of year again, where out of necessity we need to renew our insurance policy. While not the most romantic thing to donate towards, it surely is blessed, perhaps even more so for this reason! The bill is even higher this year than in years past. Please can we ask for your help and support with this?
