Voluntary contributors

August 13, 2009

Winners of Redbridge Jewish Community Centre’s annual volunteer awards included centre stalwarts Claire and Ivor Baylin.

The Baylins have volunteered at RJCC for 10 years and are heavily involved in its daily life.

Mrs Baylin welcomes people at the door and helps out in the dining room.

Her husband runs bowls and the centre’s afternoon quiz. At this year’s Purim show, she dressed as a cheerleader, while he became a snake charmer for the afternoon.

Other winners were Terry Chyte, who volunteers four days a week, and Hymie Phillips, who has also helped out at Jewish Care’s Stepney day centre. Awards also went to Stella Scholar — a volunteer for 22 years who started as a meals-on-wheels driver — and Marie Cohen, who has volunteered for 40 years.
