Screening Full Circle
A premier of a film that explores the story of the 1968 disappearance of Israeli submarine INS Daker has raised £4,220 for World Jewish Relief's (WJR) Gifts In Kind humanitarian relief programme.
The screening of Full Circle made by Tony Klinger with Arnon Manor, father of Dan Manor who was one of the men who went missing was attended by more than 200 people at north London's Finchley Arts Depot.
We are hugely grateful to Tony, and all who have been involved with the screening of Full Circle, for their support. This has been a very exciting project to be a part of, and Im sure this film will be a huge success," said WJR chief executive Paul Anticoni.
Money raised from the screening will go towards the shipping costs WJR incurs in transporting goods to help individuals abroad which includes Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. According to the organisation, more than £9m has been raised for its Gifts In Kind programme.
"It is fulfilling that this film can in turn help others, and raise money for such an effective programme like World Jewish Reliefs Gifts in Kind," said Tony Klinger.
