Jamie spices up poker day

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

JAMIE OLIVER HELPED to cook up a six-fig­ure sum for co-ex­is­tence projects in Is­rael when he took part in the One to One Chil­dren’s Fund poker tour­na­ment in the West End on Sun­day.

The TV chef urged guests to “dig deep in your pock­ets” as he auc­tioned a spe­cial din­ner at his Fif­teen restau­rant, rais­ing over £10,000 to­wards the event’s £200,000-plus pro­ceeds. He was less suc­cess­ful at the poker ta­ble as the tour­na­ment, also fea­tur­ing ac­tor Dex­ter Fletcher and foot­baller Teddy Sher­ing­ham, was won by Leti­cia White, daugh­ter of restau­ra­teur Marco Pierre White.

Money raised will be split be­tween the char­ity’s work for chil­dren with HIV/Aids and its af­ter-school clubs in Is­rael, open to chil­dren from all com­mu­ni­ties.
