Ari Wohlgemuth, 13, from Hendon, has chosen to put his piano skills to good use as his Bar Mitzvah fast approaches. Over the past few months, he has been entertaining audiences at Jewish Care Homes and Friendship Clubs to raise money for much needed equipment and awareness for charity. His chosen charity is Schneiders’ Children’s Medical Centre in Israel (Petach Tikva), a leading paediatric centre “renowned for its pioneering spirit and staff dedication towards every patient as a child and not as a small adult.”
Ari, in Year 8 at Immanuel College, is currently learning for Grade 7 piano and hadn’t had experience on the keyboard until recently, but has enjoyed the challenge of building up a mixed repertoire of classical, jazz and well known favourites.
He is hoping to raise enough money to buy a paediatric ophthalmoscope for the hospital and has almost reached his target. If you would like to support him and the hospital, please go to his justgiving page –
