Camp Simcha’s northern exposure

February 11, 2010

The increasing Manchester influence of Camp Simcha, helping children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, was highlighted at a Salford meeting.

Neville Goldschneider, executive director of the north London-based charity, reported that Camp Simcha had been working with 13 local families, among them seven children with cancer and others with genetic or heart conditions.

“It is so important for us to inform the community about Camp Simcha so that families that may need us know we are here.”

Michali Azar, whose daughter Batsheva is in remission from leukaemia, also addressed the meeting, hosted by Jane and Gigi Mechlowitz. Over 50 people attended and £13,000 was raised.
