The Cambridge Friends of Magen David Adom has been organising events since 1968, and we are fortunate that the Cambridge Jewish community support us so well.
Over the years we have been instrumental in Magen David Adom receiving various items, amongst them 4 ambulances, 2 defibrillators, a medical motorbike, and disposable medical supplies. We are currently raising money for a Lifepack 500 defibrillator.
We have had a great variety of functions over the years — coffee mornings, tea afternoons, dinners, musical evenings, talks, Desert Island Discs evenings, quizzes, garden parties. Sometimes we have a joint function with the university students. For Israel’s 50th birthday we put on a play which involved the whole community for which we obtained an Arts Council Lottery Funding grant.
We usually have three functions a year:- a tea afternoon in the Autumn, an evening event in the Spring and an annual Garden Party in the summer.
If you live in the Cambridge area, and would be interested in participating in MDA events, then please contact Nicole in the London Office (020 8201 5900) for further information.
