Members of the Bromley and District Reform Synagogue supported one of the UK’s biggest faith-led days of social action.

The synagogue, based in Highland Road, helped support local charity, Deaf Access as part of an international day of support to a range of causes.

Attendants, including Bromley mayor, Kim Botting, were taught sign language by a speaker from Deaf Access and a quilt was made for the Deaf Access stall on Bromley High Street.

The day set out to raise exposure for the local charity supporting those with hearing difficulties.

More than 1,000 projects were organised as part of Mitzvah Day.

Project organiser Benjamin Butler said: “Mitzvah Day reminds us just what a difference we can make by donating just a few hours of our time.

“By helping Dead Access on Mitzvah Day, we hope that it will motivate people to help Deaf Access every day.”
