Kol Chai – the Hatch End Reform Community – triumphed at the Jetstream Triathlon held at Merchant Taylors’ School on Sunday 14 June. Its four-strong team, led by Ruth Lewy, and well over 20 cake-bakers and sellers raised some £700 for the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre (LJMC).
Kol Chai members also acted as race marshals, directing runners of all ages on an abnormally cold summer day. Fiona Hussey of the LJMC said: “It was tremendous of so many Kol Chai members to give up their time and provide such great support”.
Kol Chai provides a great buynolvadexonlineshop.com variety of extra activities for its members (and visitors) – art class to table tennis, film club to wine appreciation. However, the community also lays great store on helping others – be it the Harrow food bank, refugees and asylum seekers or via one-off events like this.
The LJMC opened in June 1993 to provide support and information to people affected by cancer; it was named after Lynda Jackson (née Singer), a Jewish patient at Mount Vernon Hospital who died aged 31 and was known to a number of Kol Chai members.
