Philanthropist honoured for raising £500K for over 90 children’s charities

Zvi Noé recognised at 2019 Sceptre Awards for his leadership of the charity One Great Day, which has helped fund a machine that allows doctors to scan hearts accurately

A Jewish philanthropist who raised £500,000 for state-of-the-art equipment including a machine that lets doctors scan a child’s heart with great accuracy has been honoured for his work.

Zvi Noé was this week recognised for making an outstanding contribution at the 2019 Sceptre Awards for his leadership of the charity One Great Day, which he set up with his wife Michal in 2014.

One Great Day has now raised half a million pounds for more than 90 children’s charities including Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), where the money recently bought a new echocardiogram (ECG) machine, which allows an ultrasound scan of the heart.

Noé heads the Capreon real estate business whose assets include retail space, so he and Michal chose to raise funds through more than 210 shopping centres across the UK.

This week he said it was “a great honour” to receive the award. “This is confirmation of the achievement of everyone who has been a part of One Great Day, every shopping centre, asset manager, managing agent and owner who has been and continues to be the very heart of the One Great Day family,” he said.

“I have a vision of One Great Day continuing to grow, taking place in every retail location across the UK. This is an opportunity for the retail community to be part of something great, something bigger than any one centre, to make a difference, and to grasp the opportunity of turning what we do at work into something that changes the lives of thousands of children across the UK for the better

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
