RE­GIONAL NEEDS

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

While I have ev­ery ad­mi­ra­tion for Dame Vivien Duffield and her un­fail­ing gen­eros­ity to causes in Is­rael and the UK, I have to ex­press my dis­ap­point­ment that the rest of the UK seems not to ex­ist.

It seem in­con­gru­ous in­deed to read, in the same edi­tion ( JC, Septem­ber 18) as that re­port­ing the plans for a £50 mil­lion cen­tre in Lon­don, an ar­ti­cle ( Com­mu­nity) about the need for just tens of thou­sands of pounds for a cen­tre for youngsters in south Manch­ester where there are many prob­lems of Jewish chil­dren go­ing astray. Par­ents have formed a com­mit­tee to get this cen­tre off the ground in or­der to cre­ate a club-house which will serve to ed­u­cate and en­ter­tain the youngsters but th­ese are trou­bled times fi­nan­cially. It will be sad if the phi­lan­thropy that seems to serve Lon­don can­not be ex­tended to serve those in Manch­ester and other places. Leila Levine Lang­ham Road Bow­don Cheshire
