CST'S CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

From this motzei Shabbat - 1st March, CST is hosting a crowdfunding campaign called ‘Together We Protect’. Jewish people across the UK will visit a campaign website and donate to CST. Each donation will be matched from a special fund which will encourage people to give and to see their donations doubled. The objective of the campaign is for everyone – young and old – to come together to support CST. It is our joint responsibility to ensure the security of our Jewish community.

 

CST’s work allows Jewish people in the UK to live vibrant, safe and secure Jewish lives with confidence. Securing shuls, schools and events - wherever Jews gather together - CST is there to provide reassurance and protection.   

 

Central Square Minyan  has always worked in close partnership with CST to create a safe and secure environment for our community. We are hugely grateful to CST for providing funding  for security enhancements  and for keeping a watchful eye over us from its 24/7 National Security Control Centre. CST never charges for anything it does and depends on charitable donations to survive.

 

CST is not ‘just another charity’ but is part of the very fabric of our community and CSM is delighted to be able to support this campaign.

 

So, from Saturday evening 27 February, please visit the Together We Protect website, and give generously. Let’s join together to protect CST, just as they have protected us over many years.

ST JUDE'S WEATHERVANE APPEAL
You may remember that the weathervane on top of the church blew down in Storm Barny in 2017.  Insurers are finally ready to replace the weathervane and the church wants to benefit from the scaffold by undertaking urgent repairs to the tower.  

The church is our neighbour and has proved to be a good landlord, especially in agreeing an extension to our lease which is currently with solicitors.  The church is running an appeal for sponsorship and you may wish to donate. Indeed a leaflet may have dropped through your letterbox. You can read it  here:
