We’re up for pay day

Lisa Lee — with son Ma­son — makes good on her pledge at the LJWB of­fices

A STEADY stream of Leeds Jewish Wel­fare Board sup­port­ers turned up at its of­fices on the an­nual “pay day” to make good on their New Year Ap­peal pledges.

The day was launched in 2009 to cut back on ad­min­is­tra­tive costs for the ap­peal. This year, it was held on the day af­ter Yom Kip­pur.

Fundrais­ing di­rec­tor Meirav Sas­son said the re­sponse had been “amaz­ing. It’s grat­i­fy­ing to have a face-to-face en­gage­ment be­tween donors, staff and trustees and to ex­plain to donors the many dif­fer­ent ser­vices the board of­fers.”

This year’s ap­peal — which LJWB hopes will at least match the £250,000 pro­ceeds from 2014 — has fo­cused on so­cial iso­la­tion.
