My page:

I have chosen to challenge myself to swim 100 lengths of our local 25m swimming pool.  I am raising money around the occasion of my Bat Mitzvah for the children at Beit Issie Shapiro.  While I was recently in Israel, I visited the charity and saw for myself how they are changing the lives of those children who have disabilities.


I particularly enjoyed meeting an 11 year old girl at the school called Linoi.  Linoi couldn’t walk nor talk when she arrived at Beit Issie Shapiro 5 years ago.  With their tailored programmes, innovative expert guidance and total love and care, Linoi happily danced and spoke to me during my visit.


I want to help more children like Linoi and so I’m raising money for the latest technology which I know can and will make their lives better.


Please do take a minute to watch this video and find out more about the wonderful work at Beit Issie Shapiro.


Thank you for supporting my project.
