Great footfall at first ever UJIA Manchester Footgolf tournament!
95 people took part in UJIA Manchester’s first ever Footgolf tournament, held on Wednesday 20 July. Team Loofenberg beat 18 other teams on the 18-hole course with a twist at the evening fundraiser, sponsored by Whitefield Golf Club and Edwards Veeder.
Before play, attendees had the chance to watch a short film about the UJIA Ethiopian Bar/Bat Mitzvah Programme, which twins UK and Ethiopian-Israeli children, and provides the latter with Jewish enrichment activities in Israel. Adam Levene from the UJIA Manchester Sports Committee spoke briefly about the difference UJIA is making in Israel and the UK Jewish community, and promoted the UJIA Sports Quiz being held in March 2017. The event raised much needed funds through ticket sales and a raffle.
