Motorcyclist dies in crash Jump start
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.”
