The Leicester Friends of Oxford Centre of Hindu Studies group comprises an informed community of people united by a concern for Indian culture and its study at the highest level. They give of their time and money, they lend their reputation to the work of the Centre, and they give freely of their valuable expertise. Our Friends and Benefactors ensure that the work of the Centre retains a global focus, serving the communities it engages with.
Every year they host a sponsored Tirth Yatra (a Pilgrimage) of Leicester Temples to raise funds for the bursary. This year’s walk took place on Saturday 22 April 2023 and we visited 9 templed followed by a sponsored lunch. The walk raised £1400.
Everyone is welcome to join the walk and next year we plan to arrange transportation to Leicester for students who would like to experience the many beautiful temples that Leicester has to offer.
