A group of injured British veterans were among more than 500 guests at the largest Beit Halochem UK dinner.
The former soldiers, who took part in the inaugural Veteran Games at BH centres in Israel, descended on the Royal Lancaster Hotel for the event which was addressed by two Israeli heroes supported by the charity and raised £1.25m.
BHUK’s Spencer Gelding said: “We are so grateful to all of our supporters who have helped us to raise much needed funds.
“A large proportion will go towards the building of the final stage of the Ashdod complex.”
The dinner was chaired by Natalie and David Tahan.
