They were helped by two Yeshiva Gedola students from London Levi Waren & Avrahom Golomb who helped with programs throughout the day. Lubavitch Shul in the Park held their annual Megila reading service at Barrland Court a housing complex for the elderly attended by many residents and members of Shul in the Park on Saturday Night and also on Sunday during the day. On Sunday all the men were delighted to put on Tefillin with Tefillin activist Rabbi Chaim Jacobs. During the day 200 Mishloach Monos gifts were distributed throughout the community especially to the elderly and the housebound. A visit was also made to the 30 clients at the Jewish Care Sunday club where gifts were also distributed.
