A new home for Khensur Rinpoche

With help from some generous benefactors, the Good Fortune Trust is about to acquire a house in Spring Hill to be used as a residence for Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants, Tshering and Tsewang.  It will also provide a small workspace for our admin volunteer helpers, so we can stop paying rent for an office.
 
There is already a lot of hard work going on to make the house ready.  It is being scrubbed, painted and repaired; there are some basic essential upgrades happening as well, with the help of several very kind people who have offered their time and expertise. (As you can see from the pics, it's a work in progress).
 
But there’s more we’d like to be able to do.  It’s not a very big house and ideally we’d like to add an extra room because Rinpoche is hoping we can bring one of his nephews out from India as a carer, to help look after him as he gets older; and/or close in the small verandah to make a dining room, where we would also do our group study in preparation for Rinpoche’s teachings.  In addition, I am shopping for some new furnishings for Rinpoche’s bedroom to replace items that have become run down and need replacing.
 
However, we don’t have enough funds to cover everything that needs to be done.  So if you would like to help out by making a donation towards something specific or in general, we would be very grateful for your support!
