Pears’ gift to Nor­wood

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

NOR­WOOD IS us­ing a £150,000 wind­fall from the Pears Foun­da­tion to de­velop its ser­vices.

Along with col­leagues from the Phi­lan­thropy Re­view, Pears Foun­da­tion ex­ec­u­tive chair Trevor Pears re­cently called on busi­ness lead­ers, phi­lan­thropists and the gov­ern­ment to make char­i­ta­ble giv­ing eas­ier.

“Our fam­ily foun­da­tion is pleased to be able to in­crease its sup­port for Nor­wood to help them to con­tinue to de­liver the im­por­tant ser­vices that our com­mu­nity is justly proud of,” Mr Pears said.

“We also hope this do­na­tion will en­cour­age those that can to con­sider in­creas­ing their own do­na­tions over the com­ing year so that to­gether we can pro­tect these ser­vices.”

At Nor­wood, chief ex­ec­u­tive Norma Brier was “de­lighted to be work­ing in part­ner­ship with the Pears Foun­da­tion. Their do­na­tion will greatly as­sist Nor­wood dur­ing this dif­fi­cult fi­nan­cial pe­riod.”
