Get your kilt on to help raise funds for JCS

JEWISH Care Scotland is asking people to get their kilts on to raise money for the charity.

JCS is hoping people will register to take part for them in the Glasgow Kiltwalk on Sunday, April 28. Distances are 23 miles, 15 miles and six miles.

JCS participants will receive 50 per cent off their registration fee and a JCS t-shirt.

By registering using the JCS discount code, walkers are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £100.

The Hunter Foundation is topping up all fundraising by 40 per cent, so for every £1 raised, JCS will receive £1.40.

* Email or call Helena on 0141-620 1800 to receive the discount code before registering.

Earlier this month, JCS, in collaboration with strategy and change consultancy Thrive, hosted an evening of food and discussion about how the organisation will support the community in the future.

The ‘Food for Thought’ event was attended by 50 people from across the Jewish community taking part, sharing their ideas and experiences.

“The event proved that the Scottish Jewish community is not short on people who care and want to be involved in ensuring a bright future for Jewish Care Scotland,” a spokesman told the Jewish Telegraph.

“Many shared their own stories of how important the organisation has been to them and how it made a positive difference in their life. Everyone is looking forward to seeing how the organisation evolves to meet community needs in the future.”

A report will be presented to the JCS board. It will be available to view on the JCS website by late spring.
