Camp Simcha held an evening at the Manchester home of Andrea and Jeff Samuels to raise awareness of its work with children with life-threatening illnesses.
Michali Azar explained how the charity had enabled the family to cope with a daughter suffering from leukaemia. Camp Simcha executive director Neville Goldschneider outlined its activities.
"Several people expressed an interest in holding similar evenings," he said. "Awareness is crucial for us."
