As I've approached my 70th Birthday it has given me the chance to reflect on my life so far and on the need which still exists to help those, especially children, who have not had the most basic of their needs met, the ability to have regular meals.

We have many calls on our time and resources to support so many good causes, who all, in their way, impact on the lives of those they assist.  I have decided though that I wish to support those who need a meal and to support the British Emunah Food Fund.

Those who have chosen to mark my birthday with a donation to Emunah will have their donations earmarked for the Food Fund and I will match fund the donations made for my birthday.

Thank you on behalf of all those children who will benefit.
