Welcome to my page







Dear all,

This May bank holiday, instead of having my nose stuck inside a book and revising for my exams (where I should be) I will be completing the hardest challenge I have ever set out to do – the Bike4Kef 100mile ride!

As a Kef counsellor, I have witnessed, first-hand, the endless work the trustees and administrative staff undertake in order for Kef to run as smoothly as it does. Whether it is for the amazing summer/winter camps, chol-hamoed outing, Sunday clubs, etc., everything is meticulously planned and organised. 

I first joined the Kef family in December 2016 for my first winter camp. At the age of just 15, I got onto the party bus at Tesco car park and off I went - I had no idea what I was getting myself into! After a week of looking after the most amazing kid I was shattered; physically and emotionally drained.  Of course it was the most difficult venture I have ever had to accomplish, having to constantly provide care and attention and not being able to leave his side for even a minute but, despite this I had had the most unbelievable experience. Moreover, because of this, not a week has gone by where I haven’t been involved in Kef in some form.

Many a time, parents have approached me to thank me for the precious respite and time I have given them by taking their child out. Whether it be on a Sunday afternoon or a Wednesday night, any free time these hard-working parents get is a huge life saver. One personal experience I had was one night last February. It was a Wednesday night and I, together with another counsellor, took a kid bowling as a one off. When we dropped the kid back at home, his ‘super-parents’ thanked us and told us it was the first time in nearly 6 months that they had sat down together during a weekday and ate supper together as a couple. I went home, sat on my bed for about half-an-hour contemplating on what they had just told me. It is these small opportunities of respite that I am able to give these Kef families opportunities to do the washing, to go shopping, to eat dinner and, most importantly, to focus on their other children.

 I feel as though I am part of these families and we are all together are part of the extended Kef family. Therefore, I am duty-bound to assist in raising much needed funds for this prodigious charity and family to continue the incredible work they do.

Please support me in my endeavours to continue to be part of the astonishing family that is Kef

Best regards,

Zev Bloom
