Business Breakfast with The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP

07 Feb 2020

 

More than 200 people gathered for Jewish Care’s Business Breakfast at Mansion House, raising £70,000 for the charity’s core services.

During the breakfast, donors heard Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, interviewed by the former director of BBC News, James Harding.

The two discussed some of the trade opportunities the government believe Britain now has as a result of Brexit, and the Chancellor’s priorities for investment in infrastructure and the creation of more opportunities for people.

The Chancellor commented that the Jewish community “looks out for each other” and that we have much that we can teach other communities in the UK about how to help each other.

Others present at the breakfast included the Lord Mayor, William Russell.

Jewish Care’s Business Breakfast was made possible through the generous sponsorship from our headline sponsors, Coller Capital and associate sponsors, Synova Capital.

Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP said:

“I was delighted to be able to speak at Jewish Care’s Business Breakfast this morning and address the attendees who were all present to support the charity in the vital work they do to care for older people in the Jewish community.”

Lord Howard Leigh, Chairman of Jewish Care’s Business Breakfast Committee said:

“The Business Breakfast Committee are extremely proud to have helped raise essential funds today, which will go towards Jewish Care’s vital services including residential care homes, community centres, dementia day care centres, independent living facilities, disability services, Holocaust survivor services and more.”

Daniel Carmel-Brown, Chief Executive, Jewish Care said:

“We were thrilled to host Sajid Javid as our guest speaker, and together with James Harding, they gave a fascinating insight in to Britain post Brexit and the Chancellor’s priorities moving forward. We are grateful that they were able to join us. Jewish Care relies on the generosity of its donors, and the funds raised today will make a huge difference to our community centres, care homes and services.”
