GIFT Spreads the light in memory of Yoni

24/11/20GIFT Spreads the light in memory of Yoni

Hundreds of students from JFS, Hasmonean, Immanuel and Yavneh College were involved in a partnership initiative run by GIFT and sponsored by The Yoni Jesner Foundation, in the run up to Chanukah, making 600 electric menorahs for patients and staff in hospitals, residents in care homes and welfare charity service users. 

Sarah David from the Yoni Jesner Foundation told us “It is so great partnering with GIFT on a project that will engage so many teenagers and benefit so many recipients..a true way to keep Yoni's light shining."

Daniel Sinclair from Langdon, gratefully asserted “Thanks so much for the Menorahs, you'll be bringing so much light & happiness into our members’ lives.”

13 year Noam Field from JFS explained “Chanukah is my favourite time of year and I thought the idea of making chanukiahs with GIFT for those in need would really help light up these peoples’ lives, especially as this year has not been so great.  It was a lot of fun too! I love going along to the GIFT sessions at school - it feels good knowing that I am helping those who need it most.”
