On 7th April I visited the Stamford Hill branch of Hatzola, a community-run volunteer ambulance service that helps to take some of the strain off the London Ambulance Service by attending local medical emergencies. They receive around 6,000 calls per year and their 35 highly trained local volunteers work alongside the London Ambulance Service in dealing with local incidents.
I was pleased to meet with representatives of their organisation to discuss the vital work Hatzola are doing in Tottenham and North London. It is brilliant to hear positive testimonies of Hatzola’s services from people from all faiths, with one Muslim motorcyclist who was caught up in a road traffic accident last year stressing the importance of interfaith cooperation in the constituency.
The work of the Jewish community is deeply appreciated in Tottenham and I look forward to continuing to follow the positive work Hatzola do.
