Char­ity’s Lot­tery boost

The Jewish Chronicle - - HOME NEWS - BY EMILY RHODES

CHIL­DREN OF Peace, a new UKbased multi-faith char­ity that aims to help chil­dren in the Mid­dle East, has won a £10,000 grant from the Lot­tery Fund. It is the first non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion to ben­e­fit from the Small Grants strand of the Lot­tery’s in­ter­na­tional pro­gramme. The char­ity de­pends on close in­volve­ment from Is­raelis and Pales­tini­ans. “We’re all here for the same pur­pose,” said chief ex­ec­u­tive Richard Martin. “To look af­ter the chil­dren, the forgotten vic­tims of a long-term con­flict.”

Chil­dren of Peace’s pa­tron is Madonna, and good­will am­bas­sadors in­clude jour­nal­ist Ann Les­lie; up-and­com­ing Is­raeli singer Liel; Labour MP Louise Ell­man; and Con­ser­va­tive MP To­bias Ell­wood.
