A SOUTH­GATE busi­ness­man trav­el­ling to see his sick mother was killed in a road crash in Hen­don.

Ray­mond Hel­man, 52, died from head in­juries sus­tained af­ter the sil­ver Honda mo­tor­cy­cle he was rid­ing col­lided with a black Ford Mon­deo in Hen­don on Septem­ber 25.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.

Mr Hel­man had been go­ing to see his mother, who suf­fers from de­men­tia and is a res­i­dent in a Hen­don care home. The fu­neral took place last week at Waltham Abbey.

His cousin, Shel­ley Hel­man, 57, said: “I couldn’t be­lieve it when I heard. I just sat cry­ing for three days. We grew up to­gether and were very close. It’s a re­ally tragic story.”

His 90-year-old un­cle, Johnny Hel­man, re­called “a very charm­ing and lively per­son. We are in­cred­i­bly sad­dened by the news.”

Mr Hel­man leaves a son and daugh­ter, both in their twen­ties, from his for­mer mar­riage and a long-term part­ner.

A NEW men­tor­ing scheme matches pupils at Jewish schools with pro­fes­sion­als of­fer­ing ca­reer ad­vice.

More than 60 stu­dents have ap­plied to join the Jump pro­gramme, launched by ed­u­ca­tion char­ity World Ort.

Pi­loted at JFS and Has­monean, or­gan­is­ers hope all Jewish sec­on­daries will even­tu­ally of­fer the scheme. Jump di­rec­tor Ju­lia Al­berga said: “By link­ing them with men­tors, stu­dents will gain help­ful in­sight that will as­sist them in mak­ing the right ca­reer de­ci­sions.”
