We regularly hold Satsang and Kirtan Events at the Yoga Sanctuary which are offered on a donation basis whereby all proceeds are given to charity. Thank you for your generous donations! Here's a few of the charities we have supported recently...
 
Summer 2016 Satsang & Kirtan Event

We raised an amazing £450 at the Sanctuary's Summer Satsang & Kirtan event on Saturday 18th June, which was added to Ruth Havenga's 'Three-Peak fund-raising challenge' for the 'Piam Brown' Unit at Southampton Children’s Hospital. Thank you to you all for your donations, you're an amazing group of people!

Christmas Gathering 2015

What a wonderful evening to close an amazing 2015 at the Yoga Sanctuary!
HUGE THANK YOU'S for your donations to our chosen charity of 'Ramana's Garden' in Rishikesh, India. Last night we collectively raised £1,185, and with the generous donation of the 'PearTree Develop Fund', this means the figure will be doubled to a staggering £2,370!!!! 
Your pockets are as deep as your Hearts are Big!

Ramana’s Garden’ in Rishikesh, India, is a wonderful children’s home and school set up to support abandoned, orphaned, destitute and abused children who are given food, shelter and education so they may thrive. The school is currently raising money to install solar power.

Fundraiser DIVALI event October 2015
 

WOW £820 raised by the Yoga Sanctuary Sangha from Divali celebrations, which means we can share the light in a tangible and practical way to help transform a school in rural India.

Huge Thank You to all the Yogis who brought some light out of their pockets - monies raised will go with direct effect to the Shahdol Foundation in India, this together with the donations from Deva Deva Yoga School in Holland, means we can make a real difference to over 600 under-privileged children attending the Shahdol school in rural India. 

Donations from both Yoga Schools greatly exceeded the £1000 target required to create a new well for drinking water, and along with a couple of large individual donations from students of Deva Deva it means they also have enough left over to purchase a new tractor for their agricultural activities. Amazing, what a difference we can all make as a collective energy!

 

Message of Thanks from the Shahdol Foundation:

"Dear beautiful people, we from Shahdol Foundation are very grateful for your donation to the children on our school in India.  the waterwell we had made in 2000 has dried up, and with this money we are able to make a new one. all the children are using this well on the school. now we have 630 children who have free education and 35 boys are living in the hostel next to the school. with donations like this we are really able to give something back to the world. in our tradition we say, come to learn and go to serve. in name of the children thank you my dear brothers and sisters, Namaste."

Donations from Kirtan Events in June and September 2015 were sent to the Greek Rescue Organisations, who are receiving an ever increasing number of refugees on their shores.

The 'Hellenic Rescue Team' used donation of £550 in September to purchase supplies and distribute them to refugees stranded in FYROM. Donations in June of £650 was sent to Hellenic Red Cross and to Hellenic Rescue Team based on the island of Kos, who used the funds to purchase essential supplies such as water, food and blankets.

On behalf of Hellenic Rescue Team's Board of Directors I would like to thank everyone in Yoga Sanctuary for their donations. It is always very nice to know that there are people who support our work, even outside Greece and people who care about the refugees' problem. We assure you that the money has been used to buy all the necessary products that the refugees need and we send you photos from the delivery.'  ~  www.hrt.org.gr
