The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

FOR­MER MITZ­VAH Day in­terim chief ex­ec­u­tive Sue She­fras led a cross­com­munal­teamof MDvol­un­teer­swho cooked Sun­day lunch for 40 home­less peo­ple at a shel­ter run by St Mungo’s Broad­way in cen­tral Lon­don.

The lunch was part of the Mitz­vah Day 365 ini­tia­tive, which en­cour­ages good deeds all year round.

“Mitz­vah Day in Novem­ber is in­cred­i­ble but it’s also im­por­tant to keep up that vol­un­teer­ing through­out the year,” Ms She­fras said. “So ev­ery month we will get a group of vol­un­teers to­gether to cook Sun­day lunch for those less for­tu­nate at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions across Lon­don.”

St Mungo’s clients en­joyed a three­course meal of veg­etable soup, roast chicken with all the trim­mings and ap­ple crum­ble. They also re­ceived gifts of fruit, home­made cakes, DVDs and win­ter cloth­ing.

The vol­un­teers — Si­mon Rothstein, Amanda Senett, De­bra Leyens, Mandy Blu­men­thal, Sally Llewellyn and Linda Ma­jors — joined them in a game of bingo.
