This Saturday there will be a Golden Buddha Centre clean-up.
I shall be working at the GB centre this coming Saturday (30th May) from 2pm-4pm. If you would like to lend a hand (with even just a little job) it would be very much appreciated. Just pop in whenever convenient to you during the time I am there and you will receive a warm welcome.
