She grew up in Manchester attending Yavneh School where she was heavily involved in Bnei Akiva, holding the position of Rosh. She thrived in this environment which gave her a creative outlet and a strong sense of community. She moved to Leeds for university, where she took the role of UJS warden of Hillel House. After taking the bold decision to move to London, Anoushka was the Meals on Wheels’ Coordinator at Jewish Care. She really enjoyed working in the Jewish charity sector and has now moved to GIFT to follow her passion for events’ management.
Anoushka is driven and energetic and enjoys rising to the challenge. She is full of innovative ideas and is excited to channel them into organising more great events at GIFT. She told us. ‘I’ve been so impressed by GIFT’s work within the community, especially its ability to touch the lives of so many, from volunteers to partner organisations to service users; I am excited to begin my GIFT journey and to bring amazing events to the wider community.’
- Sandor Milun, GIFT’s MD explained ‘We are delighted to have Anoushka on board; she immediately demonstrated a real creative streak. We are so looking forward to seeing her ideas transformed into great events.’
In January, for Tu Bishvat, Anoushka engaged the community organising a successful litter pick event in Hendon Park partnered with Barnet Council. At the start of February Anoushka will be launching GIFT’s Social Action Network for Young Professionals (22 – 30 year olds). Her aim is for this to be a new social scene engaging young professionals, integrating giving and social action into all its events.
The first Social Network event will be a YP drinks and dinner event on Wednesday 9th Feb. To sign up click Www.jgift.org/ypdrinks or contact Anoushka on Anoushka@jgift.org
