They’re scor­ing at Good­i­son

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

MITZVAH DAY made the Premier League on Sun­day at Good­i­son Park with its first ac­tiv­ity at a foot­ball sta­dium.

Be­fore the game be­tween Ever­ton and Wat­ford, do­na­tions to North Liver­pool Food­bank were col­lected in a link-up with Fans Sup­port­ing Food­banks, a project in­volv­ing Ever­ton and Liver­pool sup­port­ers.

“It was amaz­ing see­ing so many fans of both teams tak­ing part, show­ing that Mitzvah Day re­ally is about bring­ing peo­ple to­gether,” a Mitzvah Day spokesman re­ported.

Fans Sup­port­ing Food­banks co­founder Ian Byrne said it had been “re­ally re­ward­ing” to work with Mitzvah Day.

“As well as get­ting lots of es­sen­tial items such as pasta, rice, tinned fruit, ce­re­als, dried milk and much more for North Liver­pool Food­bank, it was also a way to ed­u­cate peo­ple on what the lo­cal Jewish com­mu­nity do.”
