At last — it’s Lon­don’s turn to have a ball

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - NAOMI FIRSHT

CAM­PUS JEWISH So­ci­eties in Lon­don are to hold a joint char­ity ball for the first time in four years as part of re­newed ef­forts to get JSocs across the cap­i­tal to work to­gether.

The ball will be held next month and tick­ets are al­ready sell­ing well.

Adam Schapira, pres­i­dent of the JSoc at Univer­sity Col­lege Lon­don, said: “We’ve been work­ing very closely to­gether with all the dif­fer­ent Lon­don JSocs. We’re more or­gan­ised this year.”

There are more than 30 univer­si­ties and col­leges in Lon­don, many of which have their own JSocs. Col­lec­tive ini­tia­tives such as Fri­day night din­ners have been suc­cess­ful in at­tract­ing stu­dents.

Mr Schapira, 20, said: “There’s cer­tainly more in­ter­est and peo­ple are more en­gaged in JSocs.”

More than 200 stu­dents are ex­pected to at­tend the ball at the Mont­calm Ho­tel in cen­tral Lon­don. Funds raised by the event will go to Is­raeli char­ity Save A Child’s Heart.
