Tibetan Community in the North Committee Members
Tibetan Community UK North Association (TCB North) is a community based organisation with its base in Manchester, North West of England. Our elected council members all work on a voluntary basis whilst building a thriving healthy Tibetan community. We embrace our Tibetan culture through frequent gatherings including celebrating Tibetan New Year (Losar), normally in February and also His Holiness' Birthday in July. Building a network for both Tibetans and supporters of Tibet is fundamental to our Tibetan community. Frequently fundraising to preserve the Tibetan language is one of our ongoing priorities.
Karma Tsering – Chairman – The Wirral
My name is Karma Tsering. I was born in Tibet and have lived in the UK since 1996. Previously holding the post of Deputy Chair, it now gives me tremendous pleasure to step up to the role of Chairman within our growing community. It is important to me that this group has a chance to come together to develop a sense of community and move the Tibetan cause in the best direction. My hope and vision is to create a healthy and vibrant community where our place of birth does not matter, only our shared identity as Tibetans.
Chodak Hunter – Communications & PR – South Yorkshire
Since relocating to the North of England from Brighton back in 2011 I have always had a burning desire to give something back to my Tibetan Community. I feel that Tibetans should help other Tibetans through frequent gatherings and forging strong bonds and affiliations with each other. As Communications and PR Officer it is my duty to aid with the communicating of events, gatherings and charity events, along with acting as a voice between other Tibet Associations and our community.
