Appeal for Funds
Proposed New Extension
We are pleased to inform you that the London Buddhist Vihara (LBV) has been granted Planning Approval for a much-needed Building Extension for the execution of the following works.
The proposed building project will include a new first floor extension with 4 bedrooms for resident and visiting monks and ground floor works including relocation of the kitchen, seating area for visitors, additional storage space, relocation of the gents toilet and the ladies toilet, improving the disabled toilet, installing new heating and ventilation systems with the replacement of the existing oil fired boiler and improving the main hall and the sermon hall. The relevant information and the building plans are displayed in the main hall and on the LBV website.
The estimated cost is £1 million.
After a competitive tendering process the Contractor was selected and the contract agreement was signed on 10 December 2019. The work will commence on 20 January 2020 and it is planned to complete the works by end of August 2020.
In order to complete this important project successfully within the planned construction period, the Vihara needs additional funding in the region of €250,000, to the Vihara funds currently allocated for this project.
Therefore, we are respectfully making this appeal requesting your generous support and assistance in bridging the above financial requirement. Your kind donations are most welcome in fulfilling this objective for the successful completion of the project within cost and time.
If you wish to make a donation, please make it payable to the following account.

During the construction period there may be disruptions to the Vihara activities, but we are making every effort to minimise such disruptions in carrying out the regular services and activities at the Vihara.
Thanking you in advance for your support.
