Volunteers get stuck in on Mitzvah Day

18 December 2018

There was something for everyone at Kisharon on Mitzvah Day – gardening, arts and crafts and sport.

Volunteers, including a team from North Western Reform Synagogue, Alyth Gardens enjoying their third Mitzvah Day at Kisharon, got stuck into the projects, making the day a big success.

More than 20 people planted 400 spring bulbs and painted the fence in the garden at Childs Hill Library, creative volunteers alongside people we support worked at the Skills for Employment Centre making gifts that will be sold at Kisharon’s Gift and Homeware Store Equal, while sports fans watched the annual Langdon vs Kisharon football match at Mill Hill Power League.

Volunteer Co-ordinator Francine Haagman said: “I lost count of the number of goals made and who won!

Acting Chief Executive Richard Franklin lent a helping hand and scored a goal for the Kisharon side.

Francine added: “So many volunteers came to help and it was a fun day. We are very grateful to everyone who came along,”
