Govindadvipa Mellows is a not-for-profit Kirtan Mela festival for the pleasure of their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Govinda and in honor of H.G Tribhuvanath Prabhu
As many of you may know we are aiming that the festival will be 100% free for anyone who wished to come. From stepping foot on the barge at the start, to leaving at the end. This was very important as we feel seeing the Deities and the wonderful Kirtan should be accessible to all.
Any organiser of any event will tell you that the worst part is fundraising however we cannot over burden the temple to carry these costs. All the donations will go directly to festival costs such as prasadam, Flowers, decoration etc, estimates of which can be seen below. I would appeal that those attending make a small donation. A spare fiver or a tenner makes all the difference towards these costs.
However if you cannot or are not in the position to contribute, our only request is that you come and take part in what will be the first we hope of many many Kirtan Melas
Below are initial costings and projections.
We have made significant savings based on saving items like paper plates and cups from last year.
A full financial report of donations and cost will be published after the Mela by an independent accountant.
