1 IN 4 DINNER 2018

Leeds Jewish Welfare Board hosted their biggest dinner since the 70’s on 15 April, with over 330 people attending a fundraising evening with hilarious multi award winning comedian Jason Manford.

The Board focussed on the growing problems of loneliness and social isolation in the community.  ‘At LJWB we are seeing an increasing number of people becoming socially isolated across all age groups’ said LJWB CEO Liz Bradbury.

Loneliness is also on the increase – how we perceive the number and quality of our social connections and our purposeful role in society has a significant impact on how we feel.  Without the intervention of LJWB,  1 in 4 people in our community run the risk of becoming socially isolated.’

LJWB Rides London

We are delighted Lloyd Rakusen & fellow keen cyclist Andrew Saffman are once again taking to their bikes and challenging themselves in the Prudential 100 mile Ride London – Surrey, on 30th July. This year they will also be joined by Lloyd’s son Philip Rakusen , Simon Walton, Richard Fingret and Chris Ducker.  The event starts in the East End, continues through Surrey, and ends up on the Mall.  Like the Marathon there are over 25,000 riders from all over the world, most of them doing it for their personal preferred charity and of course their “personal best”.

“We’re exploring every avenue to raise those desperately needed funds to help all those in the community less fortunate than ourselves. We are doing this with all of you in mind and any contribution will be very much appreciated and greatly received,” commented Lloyd.

Please support their tremendous efforts.
