The 12th annual Fed Friday saw more than 130 host families invite guests to join them for a meal and make donations to The Fed in place of traditional gifts – raising more than £8,000 .

Rochelle Broman, Fundraising Manager at The Fed, said:

“It’s absolutely fantastic that so many people took part in Fed Friday this year. The generosity of the community has us on target to raise £8,500; we started Fed Friday in 2009, and it’s wonderful to see that twelve years later people are still supportive of us.

We are grateful to Hadassah Walker, Goldsteins, and Kedem Europe for their support with our family ‘goody’ bags’.”

Many hosts sent in fantastic pictures of their dining rooms decked out in Fed colours, and we were thrilled to announce the winner this year of our ‘Best Dressed Table’ as Simone Pinkus!
