With 110 registered hosts, this year’s Fed Friday event is well on course to hit its £6,000 fundraising target.

Fed Friday is the annual community-wide Shabbat event when fans of the charity host a Friday night dinner for their friends and family, asking their guests to make a donation instead of bringing a gift.

Fundraising Officer, Zoe Slotwiner said,

“This year, Fed Friday has been extremely well received and a record number of people signed up to raise money for the charity. Donations are still coming in.

All hosts were given a goodie bag which was packed with treats from local businesses. We want to thank Hilary Cakes for donating Fed-themed cupcakes, Kedem for supplying grape juice and Hadassah Walker for the match-box labels.

We also held a competition to find the best dressed table. I’m delighted to announce that the winner is Janice Haber who made a great effort to decorate her table in The Fed’s colours.

We’re always looking for new people and new ideas for fundraising events for The Fed. I’d love people to call me for a chat about getting involved”.
