Description: You will help prepare for a national Dharma celebration (a Buddhist Festival) at a Buddhist meditation centre in the heart of England, Derbyshire. We are a residential community; volunteers will be working alongside our own volunteers and residents.

Tara KMC can only benefit others with the kindness and support of volunteers. You are welcome to come and spend time volunteering. Even a small amount of time can make an enormous difference and be lots of fun! It is also a great way to make new, like minded friends in a spiritual community. Everyone is welcome.
