More than a million raised for MDA

By Leon Symons, November 4, 2010

Magen David Adom raised more than £1.1 million at its annual fundraising dinner at the Millenium Hotel in London's Mayfair on Tuesday.

An MDA spokesman said: "It was a record on the night but the dinner campaign goes on for longer than that."

The charity that raises money for Israel's ambulance service, and which also takes charge of its blood donation service, changed the usual dinner agenda of a serious speaker by bringing in impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner, who brought howls of laughter from the 340 guests with a stream of gags.

Among the firewalkers was Russell Benson, 28, from Hendon. “I thought it sounded fun,” he said. “It was for a good cause and an impressive thing to talk about to friends and family.”

New chair of governors for JFS

By Robyn Rosen, January 21, 2010

The new JFS chair of governors is accountant Michael Glass, 47, a foundation governor at the Kenton school since 2006 and vice-chairman for a year.

“I think it’s a very exciting challenge,” the Edgware resident said. “It’s time to move forward and concentrate on the academic elements and Jewish studies progression.”

He has two children, aged 13 and 16, who are currently JFS pupils and a third who finished last year.

Outgoing governors’ chair Russell Kett said the Supreme Court decision on JFS admissions was the “lowlight” of his tenure.
