Camp Simcha families got into the fast line with a sports car experience day last week. Organised by charity HabAid, more than 120 family members  were taken to Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicester to enjoy ride-alongs in Ferraris, Porsches, Audis, BMWs and other sports cars. Chief executive Neville Goldschneider said: “It was a fun and adrenalin-filled day and a great way to try to forget some of the daily troubles our families have to face.”

BUCKINGHAM PALACE

Twenty-two Holocaust survivors, refugees and members of their families joined a London Jewish Cultural Centre outing to Buckingham Palace.
