We’re rid­ing high at the Pru

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

NOR­WOOD AND Kisharon fielded teams in Sun­day’s 100-mile Pru­den­tial Lon­don-Sur­rey bike ride, rais­ing close to £20,000.

The dozen rid­ers from Nor­wood in­cluded Ju­dith Har­ris, who en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence of “fol­low­ing the Lon­don Olympics route. It’s an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence rid­ing from Lon­don to Sur­rey and back with the roads closed to cars.

“Our fam­ily have a per­sonal in­ter­est as our daugh­ter Stephanie has re­cently moved into a beau­ti­ful new sup­ported liv­ing ser­vice in Bar­net, giv­ing her and her house­mates the near­est thing to in­de­pen­dence.”

Si­mon Rosen­blatt was also on the Nor­wood team, which to date has brought in £10,000. His high­light was “pass­ing iconic land­marks, beau­ti­ful coun­try roads and rolling hills”.

Kisharon ex­pects to build sig­nif­i­cantly on the ini­tial £7,000 raised in spon­sor­ship by its 11 rid­ers.

Among them was Moshe Vo­gel, who said: “I wore the Kisharon badge on my shirt with great pride.” His only nega­tive was a punc­ture in the first mile.

Dr Bev­er­ley Ja­cob­son, Kisharon’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, said the money would be put to good use. “We have a lot of ex­cit­ing projects go­ing on this sum­mer, in­clud­ing a re­fur­bish­ment of our Tuf­fkid nurs­ery and the de­vel­op­ment of two new sup­ported liv­ing flats.”

Justin Dewin­ter ex­ceeded his £500 tar­get for Emu­nah. He had been mo­ti­vated by the char­ity’s help for Is­raeli chil­dren from dif­fi­cult back­grounds.
