News at ten: MyIsrael is profitably quizzed

    It was a perfect ten for MyIsrael as the charity celebrated its tenth birthday with a ten-themed quiz for a full house of more than 250 at Mill Hill Synagogue.

    During the decade it has raised in excess of £4 million for what founder Danni Franks described as “the low budget, under-the-radar charities” dealing with issues such as unemployment and poverty.

    In keeping with the focus of the event, the £40,000-plus generated will benefit ten MyIsrael causes.

    These include 50 counselling sessions from the Maslan organisation for rape victims; five scholarships for nursing and social care students (the Forgotten People Fund); 60 pairs of prescription glasses for those in need (Re-Specs); and ten grants for women with breast cancer (the Lemonade Fund).

    The anniversary celebrations will continue with the launch of a new website in the summer and a trek in Israel in October.
