Liam Fox MP Addresses Business Group at Jewish Care Breakfast17 Oct 2017
The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP addressed a Jewish Care Business Group Breakfast, sponsored by Fundsmith today. The event raised £30,000 to support the organisations front line services.
The Secretary for State for the recently formed Department of International Trade spoke to the 200 guests about the clear connection between trade and philanthropy, the relationship between the UK and Israel and about his optimism from the future; “My department stands ready to help shape the future of global trade, placing Britain back at its heart”.
He praised Jewish Care for all they do; “I worked as a GP. I have experienced first had how much of a difference charitable organisations like Jewish Care can make, caring for the most vulnerable people in our society. It is work that is, sadly, too often overlooked by those without direct experience of it. Yet charities can provide targeted care within communities, often reaching parts where the state cannot”.
