Pe­sach ap­peals

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

NOR­WOOD’S HELP for eight-year-old Emily, a vic­tim of parental abuse, is high­lighted in its Pe­sach ap­peal, which has a £100,000 tar­get.

Its theme is the mir­a­cle of the part­ing of the Red Sea — and how Nor­wood’s work within the com­mu­nity pro­vides mi­nor “mir­a­cles” to the many thou­sands who rely on the char­ity’s sup­port.

In Emily’s case, Nor­wood pro­vided coun­selling and found her a long-term fos­ter place­ment with a car­ing fam­ily. Also fea­tured in the ap­peal is Daryll, a 15-year-old with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.

An­other char­ity look­ing to raise £100,000 is World Jewish Re­lief, which asks sup­port­ers to look be­yond their Seder ta­ble by help­ing out their ex­tended and less for­tu­nate Jewish fam­ily over­seas.

Nightin­gale’s Pe­sach House­keep­ing Ap­peal is geared to rais­ing £90,000 for the South Lon­don home for the el­derly. Mar­keted in the form of a book­let of tear-out vouch­ers to fund the home’s day-to­day run­ning, donors can pay from £20 for 50kg of pota­toes to £1,000 to pro­vide a Seder night.
