Websters Surveyors generously donates £1000 to B’nai B’rith UK in memory of Principal Surveyor’s late grandmother
Websters Surveyors is a general practice surveying company that carries out a range of valuation work and building surveys, covering London and most of the Home Counties.
Part of the company ethos is to give back and each year they support a number of deserving charities, nominated by their employees. As a successful company, they believe they have an obligation to help those who are less fortunate. To date, they’ve donated over £20,000.
This year, Principal Surveyor, Jonathan Nesbitt (pictured left), chose the B’nai B’rith UK (BBUK) charity to receive £1,000 because of the connection to his late grandmother, Greta Ken. He says:
“My Grandma would often stay with us over shabbat and I would often be the one to drive her home afterwards. I would always ask about her plans for the week and her first response was always what B’nai B’rith would be putting on, who was talking or what event they were running. Her local lodge gave her something to look forward to every week and allow her to socialise with her peers.
BBUK President, Alan Miller, explained to me some of the great causes both in Israel and Ukraine with which B’nai B’rith are involved. I was both very impressed and humbled by the excellent work they do. I am really pleased that I am able to assist at a time when many other people unfortunately may not be in the a position to do so.”
Alan Miller (pictured right) said: “B’nai B’rith UK very much appreciates the most generous donation of £1000 from Jonathan Nesbitt at Websters Surveyors, which will go towards our ‘Feed a Hungry Family’ campaign to help over 800 disadvantaged and needy families in the town of Qiryat Gat, Israel. The recipients are mainly immigrants from the Former Soviet Union and Ethiopia. The donation is given to commemorate the sad passing of Greta Ken, who was a loyal and longstanding member of B’nai B’rith in Edgware”.
