Ezra Care is the new name for Ezra Umarpeh in Manchester.
To commemorate their move to new spacious premises on Limefield Road, they held a fundraising evening in Bais Yaakov Hall.
The gourmet buffet had four food stations, with a tantalising selection of over 20 dishes, plus a desert station offering a selection of ice creams, fresh fruit, a hot chocolate fountain and warm waffles. Catering was expertly provided by Mr Yoel Wreschner. There was also a fabulous wine tasting table by Kosher Savers. Close to 1000 men attended, thoroughly enjoying the food and relaxed atmosphere.
The event was graced by many Rabbonim & Kehilla leaders as well as former MP Ivan Lewis who was impressed by the scope and array of services provided. The main aspects of the evening were the showcasing of Ezra Care’s varied and vital services for the sick and disabled. The 3 ambulance vehicles were parked at the venue, – one had to leave in the middle for a call!
There was a Shabbos room mock up, with large displays listing the weeks that were available for dedication, in its five hospital rooms around Manchester. The newest Shabbos room is in Wythenshaw hospital, it’s at the final stages of refurbishment at a cost to Ezra Care of £15,000.
Then there was a display of the disability equipment with dedication opportunities that Ezra Care loans to patients. These included electrically adjustable hospital beds, advanced oxygen concentrators, suction aspirators and a huge selection of wheelchairs and other support equipment. Ezra Care manages 385 volunteers in its nine services, including a hospital transport service and carer services.
The Trustees and committee of Ezra Care were pleased by the support and appreciation shown by the Manchester Kehilla for the important services provided by Ezra Care.
