Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell CBE was a guest of honour at the JW3 annual fundraising dinner.

Two hundred guests attended the dinner on Monday - the biggest event since the Jewish community centre, in Finchley Road, was launched four years ago.

The evening included ‘in conversation’ events, with Michael Palin CBE interviewed by David Schneider and Darcey Bussell interviewed by BBC News broadcaster, Samantha Simmonds.

Raymond Simonson, CEO of JW3 said, “We are a vision-driven organisation in a unique position to bring together people from different backgrounds, through the breadth, quality and creativity of our programme. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved in our first four years.”

Michael Goldstein, Chair of JW3, told guests about the role JW3 plays in breaking down barriers between different communities and encouraging social cohesion.
