A special needs charity had a record 201 volunteers shaking their donation buckets during the festival of Purim.

Kisharon’s collectors included service users, staff and volunteers, who received a generous response from people in Edgware, Hendon and Golders Green. 

Totting up the proceeds, Kisharon’s Adele Busse said: “It’s been an incredible time because so many people – including our own families – have come out to support us.”

Kisharon hopes to have raised £10,000 from the collection.
