£150,000 raised for Side by Side

Around £150,000 was raised for Side by Side - an integrated nursery and special needs school for the Charedi community - from its annual Chinese auction, held at the Yesodey Hatorah School. The ladies-only fundraiser was supported by over 1,000 women, who were entertained by New York comedienne Leah Forster. Among items up for grabs were a trip to New York, a diamond pendant and a £1,000 gift card. Side by Side is embarking on a £10 million project for new school premises.
