Big brother stars get back­ing from Boris

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

BORIS JOHN­SON has pre­sented Camp Sim­cha vol­un­teers with a Team Lon­don award, recog­nis­ing ex­cep­tional ser­vice.

The char­ity sup­ports se­ri­ously ill chil­dren and their fam­i­lies and the award hon­ours its 120 “big brothers and sis­ters” — the men­tors and spe­cial friends to the sick chil­dren and their sib­lings. They visit the chil­dren each week and take them on out­ings. Camp Sim­cha vol­un­teers Gideon Glass, Danny Younger and Dalia Cole­man col­lected the award from the Mayor.

“Boris John­son said he was de­lighted to meet us and con­grat­u­lated us on what we do for Camp Sim­cha,” Mr Glass said. “It was a real hon­our to be cho­sen to re­ceive the award on be­half of all the big brothers and sis­ters.”

Camp Sim­cha chief ex­ec­u­tive Neville Goldschneider praised the vol­un­teers as “a spe­cial and unique group of peo­ple who are so gen­er­ous with their time and love. They are de­voted to the chil­dren they sup­port.”

Team Lon­don di­rec­tor Natalie Cramp said the vol­un­teers’ “sheer ded- ica­tion makes a big dif­fer­ence to the lives of their fel­low Lon­don­ers.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to the big brothers and sis­ters who are in­cred­i­bly de­serv­ing of this recog­ni­tion.” Natalie Cramp and Boris John­son with Dalia Cole­man, Gideon Glass and Danny Younger
