Party@thePark was an absolute blast. Held in a brand new venue with new sponsors, The JC and Melvin Jacobs. Fun was had by all who came and thank you to everyone who took part, especially our team of marvellous volunteers.
September was a very busy month with the Chaggim and organising Party@thePark. Happy New Year to all our friends and followers.
We are absolutely thrilled with the support that we have received, and to date 54, 15kg bags of children’s clothes and stationery have been packed by volunteers in our warehouse and are awaiting transportation to Israel.
We reported on a few challenges that have taken place recently – the Fun Run and we also had four amazing cyclists who took part in the Capital to Coast bike ride. Thanks guys.
There were two big events this month – the MGB Community Fun Run and we started Mini Blue-ish Jewish for nurseries (formerly known as Benjamin Bear). Both were extremely successful with money still coming in.
It’s back bigger and better – the family event of the year. New Venue – Allianz Park on 11th October.
Jewish Child’s Day teamed up with Goods For Good on a fantastic humanitarian aid project, which is at the heart of what the charity stands for.
Wow – March has been so busy. The Annual Gala Dinner was a fantastic success. We raised over £125,000. Dame Stephanie Shirley was outstanding.
Blueish Jewish is in its seventh year. Money is still coming in but the children always have a fun time.
Lucy, another wonderful example of being selfless. She had her hair cut and raised the money for Jewish Child’s Day. Lucy – you look gorgeous. Thank you.
A perfect example of children helping children…. The lovely Sadie Weir had her hair cut and donated money to help other children. Thank you Sadie – you are wonderful.
We now turn our attention to our Annual Gala Dinner. We have the most amazing speaker… Dame Stephanie Shirley.
Dame Stephanie DBE, FREng, FRSA, FBCS is a British businesswoman and philanthropist. She originally arrived in Britain as an unaccompanied Kindertransport child refugee and we are absolutely thrilled that she has agreed to speak at our dinner.

Our Rosh Hashannah appeal was launched and it is a time for sweet beginnings. Together we can help children have a new sweet beginning rather than the terrible past that they have had to endure.

Project of the Month
Ohr Meir & Bracha -The Terror Victims Support Center – Jerusalem, Israel
Ohr Meir & Bracha help meet the needs of victims of terror and their families. Terror attacks destroy the lives not only of those who perish but also those who survive. Many victims may not receive help because their injuries are deemed insufficient to be recognised as medical disabilities or because they are still in the process of being assessed for disability. Ohr Meir & Bracha gives immediate assistance whenever possible.
Very dear friends of Jewish Child’s Day took their daughter about to embark on her Bat Mitzvah to visit Ohr Meir & Bracha and they put on such a lovely welcome and celebration, that it took her breath away.
Our annual trip took place a few weeks ago and for all those that came with us, thank you.
The sun shone as did the lovely Renee Salt who travelled with us to give people an insight into the years that she spent there.
We have received wonderful feedback….
“What a wonderful experience – a trip that will live on in my mind for ever and one that every Jew and non-Jew should make”.
“We both feel humbled to have been included and will be encourage our friends and family to make the trip too”.
“There is really no substitute to see it for yourself. Renee added a very special extra perspective that was invaluable. She really is a special lady”.
If you didn’t get the chance to come with us, please do think about making the trip next year. To register your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Rosh Hashanah appeal was sent out and on behalf of all the children you have helped this year…. Thank you so much.
