Volunteering and fundraising

Our Centre fundraising campaign

77-79 King St, Aberdeen was acquired in March this year as the future home of Kadampa Meditation Centre Aberdeen, and the initial renovation stages undertaken. In 2020, we are looking forwards to completing the renovations and opening the Centre by Spring.

Our 2019 year-end fundraising objective is to raise £25,000 to help complete the renovations.

Please consider making a Christmas present donation to the Centre to help fund the renovations for the benefit of the thousands of people in Aberdeen and the north of Scotland who will have access to this beautiful, holy place – giving people methods to solve their problems and find a meaningful life.

Your charitable donation will help Dharma to flourish in the north of Scotland



Renovations so far undertaken:

  • Internal demolition, roof repairs and sash window renovation
  • New secondary glazing for the meditation room (to minimise road sound transference and maximise heat retention)
  • Installation of heat recovery ventilation system in meditation room and top floor
  • Top floor flat construction
  • New bathrooms (including disability accessible toilet)
  • Energy efficient boiler installation and electrical upgrade

In Progress or Coming Soon, for project completion by Spring 2020

  • Beautiful handcrafted shrine cabinet and throne
  • New light fittings throughout including energy saving sensor lights for hallways, LED strips for shrine cabinet and LED spots for meditation room and ground floor
  • Audio visual systems including hearing loops on ground and first floors
  • Architectural glass inner entrance
  • Creation of ground floor reception and coffee bar area
  • External signage and front door refurbishment
  • Flooring throughout and internal decoration
