HabAid raises funds to support a number of charities in Israel, the UK and elsewhere in the world, whose primary purpose is helping disabled and disadvantaged children.
Dear Friends and Supporters,
2017 is already proving to be another inspirational year, as we work towards the Annual Gala Boxing Dinner on Thursday 16th November 2017 at the Sheraton Park Lane.
Since our last event in 2016 we have donated close to £100,000 to worthy causes and we have held two events already in 2017.
In May 2017, our focus was on hosting the UK Premier of Sylvia: Tracing Blood being shown at the JW3 Centre, with a Q&A after the showing with award winning director Saxon Logan. Based on the number of attendees and the response of the film audience to the Q&A session, I would urge you to see the film when you get the opportunity. It was a fascinating story about a remarkable woman.
August was a busy month too. HabAid’s sponsorship of the Langdon football team came to fruition and we are delighted to be supporting Langdon. It was a pleasure to see our logo emblazoned across the players’ shirts during a recent competitive match. Later in the same month, we were once again able to deliver a HabAid Driving Event day, giving memorable driving experiences for the children of Camp Simcha. The children were driven around country lanes in some of the worlds finest super-cars, including Ferrari’s, Porsche’s, Lamborghini’s and Aston Martins. Plus the children were suited and booted and given the opportunity to drive go-karts at the Daytona Raceway facility in Milton Keynes. There was also face painting, laser-tag gaming and a bouncy castle, to ensure everyone’s needs were met.
We now turn to our 2017 Annual Gala Boxing Night which has been confirmed for 16th November at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel. Full details are available here and tickets for this regular calendar event are now available. This event always provides us with the bulk of the donations we need to fulfil the pledges we make to the projects we support, so it is all hands on deck to ensure the evening and our other events raise as much as possible.
Whilst I remain humbled by the support HabAid has attracted from its donors and supporters, our work is never done. We continue in our relentless pursuit to make a difference to the lives of children still suffering worldwide. Your generosity does change the lives of hundreds of young children who will have opportunities that previously they could only dream of.
It never ceases to amaze me how British people turn their attention to the plight of less fortunate children when called upon to help. I am proud to announce that we are working hard to ensure 2017 will be an outstanding year in the history of HabAid.
Please help us to achieve even more for our HabAid charities. There are a number of ways you can help today:
- Come to our boxing event on 16th November at the Sheraton Park Lane
- Take a advertisement page in our 2017 Gala Boxing Event Brochure
- Ask for your entry into the Children’s Name page in our brochure
- Sponsor all or part of our 2017 event
- Donate on-line – any amount will help – we are all voluntary workers on the committee, so 100% of your donation goes to our causes
Thank you all for your magnificent contributions.
Lane Bednash – Chairman of HabAid
