On Sunday 1st September, Tory and Richard Benson hosted a Summer Fun Day in memory of their late stepbrother Marc Freedman who was a tenant at Frances & Dick James Court. The event was supported by around 200 people and it raised £2,500 for the charity.

A fabulous day was had by all. The sun shone and there were lots of fun activities including face painting, mask & jewellery making, a bouncy castle, outdoor games, soft play areas, card games and exciting gift stalls for all the family.

Richard Benson, Jewish Blind & Disabled Young Patron and organiser said:

"After Marc passed away, we wanted to do something special in his name whilst raising money for Jewish Blind & Disabled, who had helped him live happily and independently in his own flat. When we decided to do a summer fun day we had no idea that it would prove so popular and we raised more than double our target. It was also a great opportunity to help raise Jewish Blind & Disabled's profile in the community and get the message out about the wonderful work they do."

A big thank you to Tory and Richard for organising such a fabulous day. We would also like to thank those companies who donated fabulous prizes for the raffle,  to ‘It’s All Blow’ for donating helium balloons for a balloon release and to everyone who attended the fun day helping to make it a huge success.
