We’re really excited to have signed up to trek4thefed – the first fundraiser of its kind for The Fed – a tough physical challenge exclusively for women, in Israel this September. It’s an iconic trek – ‘Yam l’Yam’/Sea to Sea – which crosses the whole width of the country from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Galilee.

You probably know that we both love a challenge and that we love hiking and sunshine – so to say this is the perfect combination for us is an understatement. The fact that we will be tackling it with a group of like-minded, enthusiastic women, all with a passion for The Fed, makes it an even more inspiring experience. But it’s not going to be easy – we’ll be tackling 100km of rough terrain in the searing Israeli heat and sleeping in tents for 3 nights.

As a group, we’ll be investing time together, arranging regular training walks to prepare ourselves for the challenge – we’ll post the highlights on Facebook for you to keep track!

The Fed is a cause extremely close to our hearts – one of the oldest Jewish social care charities to serve the Greater Manchester Community. We have both been regular supporters of this unique organisation for many years as fundraisers and volunteers and in 2016 Julie joined the Board as a Trustee. The Fed helps around 1,000 people at any time – caring for people of all ages, from babies born with special needs to older people living with dementia and reaching the end of life.

It’s difficult to summarise everything that The Fed does, but it’s safe to say that it touches almost every part of Jewish life in the Greater Manchester community

It’s no secret that Local Authority funding for these vital social services is seriously lacking and The Fed needs to raise just short of £5k per day to provide support for the most vulnerable in our community. This is why we’re taking part in trek4thefed and asking for your support to raise as much as we can and help this amazing organisation to continue its invaluable work in our community.

We are extremely grateful for any amount you can donate – it will make an enormous difference to those we support.

Thank you

Julie and Sam x
