Clore v WIJPS Super Sunday

A charity football match between parents of Clore Tikva School and Wohl Ilford Jewish Primary School (WIJPS) raised £24,485.

More than 500 family, friends and fans flocked to the closely-fought Super Sunday contest – which was won 2-1 by the Clore side.

Achieving great success both on the pitch, and in the community, the money raised will be shared equally between the schools, ensuring that both can continue to deliver high-quality education.

Clore Tikva School’s Vice Chair of Governors, and Essex Jewish Board Member, Jonathan Bloom was one of the organisers of the day of spirited sportsmanship and charitable giving.

Jonathan said: “The East London and Essex Jewish communities have a rich history within British Jewry. This football match provided us with a unique opportunity to celebrate our vibrant community through the universal language of the beautiful game.

“Clore and WIJPS are committed to academic excellence and strive to provide a nurturing environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

“The community’s generosity not only demonstrates their dedication to these values but also ensures that future generations will benefit from the same level of educational excellence.”

Co-organiser Michael Fine added: “By investing in our schools, supporters are investing in the future of our community; empowering our young minds to reach their full potential.

“This is why the match was about more than just football; it was about using the sport as a catalyst to bring together individuals from our community who may not ordinarily participate.

“Regardless of the outcome on the scoreboard, the primary goal was to ensure that everyone had a memorable experience.”
