HabAid raises funds to support a number of charities in Israel and the UK, whose primary purpose is helping disabled and disadvantaged children.
Dear Friends and Supporters,
2016 has already been an outstanding year for us and with your help we know it is going to be our most successful ever.
Following our 2015 Annual Gala Boxing night held on 26th October, we were once again able to support all the projects we planned for our charities. We raised over £100,000 in 2015 and with your help, will be on schedule to exceed our targets for this year.
We ran another incredibly successful day at Bruntingthorpe on 1st August for the Children of Zichron Menachem. Over 240 terminally or seriously ill children, together with medical staff and carers enjoyed an incredible day where we had over 20 professional drivers taking the children round the course at speeds of 125+ mph in high performance cars. They also had a great time driving professional go-karts, had face painting, manicures, candy floss and popcorn stands and the highlight of the day was a fly-past by 2 fighter jets organised by the RAF.
We raised just shy of £12,000 net with our first ever HabAid Supper Quiz on the 4th September. The night was an incredible success and great fun. Our thanks go to everyone that attended for their kind generosity and for all those that worked so hard to make the evening so enjoyable.
One of our committee members was sent for the second time, as an envoy to the Ukraine to buy and deliver clothing, shoes and books for an orphanage, as we did in 2014. Plus we are planning lots more events such as music days, animal interaction days and so much more for the children we help.
Our focus over the next few weeks is our Annual Gala Boxing Night on the 21st November at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel. Full details are available on this site 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 fulfill the pledges we make to the projects we support so it is all hands on deck to ensure the evening rasisi 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 and 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 the less fortunate when called upon to help. I am proud to announce that we are working hard to ensure 2016 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
- Take a page in our Gala Boxing Event Brochure
- Donate online – 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
