The mayor says Chai

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life -

NEW BARNET mayor Coun­cil­lor John Mar­shall has cho­sen Chai Can­cer Care as one of his may­oral char­i­ties.

Coun­cil­lor Mar­shall said he had long been im­pressed by its work. “I re­mem­ber the com­ments of a friend whose wife was dy­ing, who said he wished they had dis­cov­ered Chai ear­lier.”

Hop­ing that the recog­ni­tion would en­hance Chai’s profile, the mayor added that there was no fi­nan­cial tar­get “as you can never raise enough for such a good cause”.

Chai chief ex­ec­u­tive Elaine Kerr pointed out that “use of our ser­vices has more than dou­bled over the past year and keep­ing pace with de­mand is costly. The may­oral funds will make a great dif­fer­ence.”
