To celebrate National Volunteering Week (1st – 7th June) Kisharon are pleased to highlight the kindness of volunteer Avi Wakefield, age 14.

Avi has been supporting Kisharon since the Covid-19 outbreak by buying and delivering Shabbat packages to people who use Kisharon services together with his father Michael.

Volunteer and Community Engagement Coordinator, Francine comments “This act of kindness makes a massive difference to people and raises their spirits knowing they are being thought of ahead of Shabbat.”

Avi together with his father Michael practice social distancing when they deliver chalah and grape juice and spend time talking to the people they deliver to, bringing a smile to so many faces.

Avi follows his Grandma Ruby’s footsteps who volunteers supporting women who use the Kisharon service.
