Founded in 1994, the Clothing Collection Fund is a non-profit making organization. Proceeds from the sale of clothes and other donated goods are given to charities. Food parcels are distributed to the elderly and needy in the area. Sedarim are arranged and local projects are supported, helping handicapped children with learning disabilities. Good quality, unwanted clothing, bric-a-brac, toys, office/computer equipment and books are all required and we will be pleased to collect.
Lubavitch is the largest Jewish educational institution in Scotland.

Most of us will eventually face the trauma of hearing loss, or already have a loved one who is.
JDA enables people living with deafness to cope with whatever challenges life brings – as no other organisation can.
With your help we can:
• Support families – from the devastating diagnosis of their baby’s deafness – giving a new generation of deaf children the very best start in life and enabling them to fulfil their potential and lead the amazing lives they deserve
• Rescue older people living in care homes from isolation and loneliness by giving them the hearing support and equipment they need to chat with the people around them, laugh, join in activities and enjoy their final years
• Give lifelong care and support to vulnerable deaf and deafblind people
• Help more people to adapt to traumatic changes as they lose their hearing.
We receive no statutory funding and depend on legacies and donations to provide a lifeline for the growing numbers of people who need specialist help – in the Jewish community and beyond.
Please remember JDA in your Will – just 1% of your residuary estate will help us ensure all deaf people get the very best out of life.

For 120 years, JNF UK has played an integral part in Israel’s development, strengthening every aspect of Israeli life in the peripheries – from investing in infrastructure projects and employment opportunities to empowering the less able and underprivileged. We have built educational institutions, helped youth programmes, provided for people with special needs and brought life to remote desert towns. None of this would be possible without the ongoing support of the Jewish community for both Israel and JNF UK.
The League of Jewish Women is a long established charity founded in 1943. Our aims are to give service to the communities we live in, and to give hands-on help where there is a need, irrespective of ethnic grouping, gender or religion. We provide volunteer help in many diverse places such as schools, prisons, hospices and day centres. We work with other organizations such as Macmillan nurses, Witness and Victim Support and Jewish Care. We are the UK affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women and therefore have worldwide links and are also affiliated to other national women’s organizations.
