Guests step up after cancelled Gala Dinner
Our Gala Dinner was scheduled for Monday 23rd March, the very first day of lockdown. Even though we couldn’t get together in person, our guests still managed to raise an incredible £250,000 through their response to our appeal. Funds raised will allow three additional schools to join the Village Way, providing hundreds more at risk children with access to support and education that will change their lives.
This money also funds ground-breaking work in educating Israeli security forces (The IDF, Ofek Juvenile Prison and the Border Police) through a programme that guides security professionals in examining and improving how they interact with minority and disadvantaged groups. After three years in operation, demand for this programme is increasing and we are proud to support such positive steps in improving Israeli society.
Thank you to everyone who generously supported our dinner appeal. We can’t wait to see what we can achieve once we are all able to be in the same room again!
