Central London communities pull off an amazing Mitzvah Day

In an unprecedented joint effort by Central London Communities, under the direction and coordination of Toni Nagel of New West End Synagogue and representatives from each community, we took on several projects in honour of Mitzvah Day.

The largest scale operation was the supermarket food/toiletries collection which involved 6 supermarkets across Marylebone, Bayswater and Kensington.  As seen from the photographs, we managed to collect an enormous amount from hundreds of generous shoppers.
