The Big Birthday Appeal in aid of The Fed’s Project Smile
PUBLISHED: 00:00 06 February 2014
The Big Birthday Appeal hosted an evening with ambassadors of Kosher cooking, the Jewish Princesses. The event raised well over £3,000 for The Fed’s Project Smile which provides respite care for Jewish children with special needs.
Held at Manchester Maccabi Centre, the evening featured a live cookery demonstration from The Jewish Princess co-founders, Georgie Tarn and Tracey Fine, and their helper for the evening, Simone Pinkus. As they demonstrated how to cook a range of dishes, including churros with chocolate for Chanukah, the Princesses related how they met as nine-year-olds on holiday in Italy and have gone on to write three, highly successful cook books together. They are currently working on their fourth title.
Mother-of-four Anne Feingold, a longstanding Big Birthday supporter, opened the event. Clare Spieler, who helped organise the evening, gave an overview of the Appeal’s success in educating children to give charity. She also launched a video made at the recent opening of a multi-sensory playroom at The Fed – a facility which was funded entirely by Big Birthday.
