March 13 2007 (Jewswire.com) - JCD handed out £85,000 to children’s agencies in the UK, in Israel and in Eastern Europe at its latest allocation meeting.

The biggest sum –£6,000 – went to Bikur Cholim Hospital to help purchase paediatric beds, while £5,000 went to Delamere Forest School in Cheshire to go towards its expansion programme.

The charity, formerly known as Jewish Child’s Day, also gave £5,000 – the final instalment of a five-year £25,000 commitment – to Gan Hayeled kindergarten situated within Haifa’s zoo. The money is used to fund the children’s pet corner.

JCD also allocated £5,000 to complete the funding for summer camps for 28 needy children in the Ukraine.

Other recipients included Simon Marks Jewish Primary School in Stoke Newington (£3,000) to help fund extra-curricular activities for children from low-income families, Aguda in Manchester (£2,500) for three summer holiday coach trips and Cosgrove Care in Glasgow (£2,000) towards its ‘Taken for Granted’ project which provides facilities for learning disabled children during the holiday period.

JCD’s executive director Daniel Burger said: “I am delighted that we have handed over so much money here in the UK as well continuing our support for Israel. Additionally, we have been able to allocate funding for a very worthwhile cause in the Ukraine, showing our continued commitment to children in Eastern Europe.”
