Rabbi Rubin is taking on the Jewish Care Scotland (JCS) Firewalk challenge on Sunday 23 January 2022 to raise vital funds for the Giffnock-based charity.
The charity launched the fundraising event in July and the adrenaline challenge will kick-start a year of fundraising events in 2022. The event will take place at the Walton Community Care Centre, the charity’s headquarters, in Giffnock with participants taking on a short training session before braving the burning embers!
Rabbi Rubin, who has taken part in a similar event in the past, is looking forward to getting involved saying that, “It’s lots of fun and laughter!”.
Robyn Friel, Head of Fundraising at JCS, said “We are delighted to have the support of Rabbi Rubin for our first fundraising event of 2022. After such a difficult time we can’t wait to get back to face to face fundraising events.
Our Firewalk coincides with Burns Night and we hope that friends and families of those taking part will come along, cheer them on and enjoy some Burns themed festivities too!”.
The charity are looking for participants to sign up and get involved for a r£20 registration fee and asking that they raise a minimum of £130 sponsorship. You must be aged 16 or over to take part.
