Meet some of our top supporters

“Kisharon is the charity the children themselves choose to support,” said Justin Kett, Deputy Head and Head of Kodesh at Sacks Morasha Jewish Primary School.

“Kisharon is the charity the children know and understand and it’s very popular. It’s very clear where the money goes, how it helps and the work it does in the community. Whenever there’s a big push at Kisharon, we’re more than happy to help,” he said.

As well as raising more than £1k in a bake sale last year, the school, with its 207 pupils, helped with Kisharon’s Matched Fundraising Campaign, donated their sponsorship from the Maccabi GB Fun Run, took part in Kisharon’s bedikas chametz project last Pesach and much more besides.

“We try to fundraise for Kisharon at Purim, but if we can’t for some reason, we will always lend support at another point during the year.”

The school’s links with Kisharon run deeper, with Rachel Ucko, Kisharon’s Community Inclusion Coordinator visiting to talk about learning disability and several years ago, a Kisharon Noé School pupil came regularly to the school for work experience.

Justin hinted this may resume with plans to once again involve adults with learning disabilities at Sacks Morasha.  “This is our long-term aim,” he said.

Pirkei Avos
“The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness.” Kisharon looks at the person not the disability, teaching Torah, Middos and Mitzvot embracing and cherishing everybody’s special talent and bringing out the best in them.
