Buddhist monks in Leeds showcased Thai culture and cuisine in a special one-day fundraising event to help repair their temple’s roof.

Thai boxing demonstrations, massage, food, music and traditional dance performances all featured during the Thai Culture and Food Festival held at Wat Buddharam Buddist Temple in Woodhouse on Sunday. A spokesman for the temple said the building is 170 years old but its roof is in need of repair - particularly with winter approaching.

“In order to keep our facilities open to public, it does unfortunately have a cost for maintenance and general up-keep of the building.”
