Rachel Riley announced as co-host of Jewish News’ Big Family Show and Expo!

Countdown presenter will join LBC host Nick Ferrari for one of the biggest communal events of the year at Allianz Park on 17 March

Rachel Riley is the latest big name to join the line-up for Jewish News’ Big Family Show and Expo.

The countdown presenter, who has been at the forefront of fighting antisemitism online in recent months, will join Nick Ferrari to host one of the biggest communal events of the year at Allianz Park on 17 March.

A day out for the whole family, the extravaganza will feature entertainment in music, dance and magic from the main stage, while kids will be able to enjoy arts and crafts, face painting and balloon activities in a special zone. Just three days before Purim, younger visitors will be encouraged to come in fancy dress, with prizes offered for the best costumes.

More than 120 exhibitors will also be present across six zones including lifestyle, retail, and travel. Many of the community’s main organisations will have stands in the community zone, while visitors will be able to tick into shawarma, falafel, bagels and sushi in a dedicated food zone.

LBC host Nick Ferrari said: “The Jewish News’ Big Family Show & Expo is a key date in the community calendar, with an amazing entertainment, fabulous food and incredible live performance. I look forward to seeing you there!”

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
