A London history walking tour has raised £1500 for Kisharon.

Participants heard how Jews rose from money lenders to merchant bankers.

Weaving through streets and back alleyways of the City, tour guide Ian Fagelson pointed out tucked away landmarks attesting to the Jewish community’s growing eminence and acceptance in the City over the past 1,000 years.

Tours accommodated over 60 walkers. Funds will support children and adults with autism and a wide range of disabilities.

Ian Tate, Kisharon’s Challenge Events Manager thanked Fagelson who did not charge for his time. 

“All donations go to Kisharon,” he said. “Participants told us how much they enjoyed the walk, and luckily the weather was kind. Building on the success of this event we are planning more walking tours in the future.”

Kisharon’s next walking event is the London Bridges Walk on July 3rd. 

Kisharon has a full programme of events for the year ahead with runs, cycle rides and other events catering for all levels of fitness.
