Why Sunderland? 

Sunderland does need a Buddhist Centre.

There has been no Buddhist monastery in Sunderland and the nearest one is approximately 30 miles away in Hexham. With great help from The Venerable Ashin Nandapala, Vivekarama Charity is established in Sunderland. It is going to be the first Buddhist Monastery founded in the city.
