MITZVAH Day has a new executive director - Cheadle-raised DAN RICKMAN.

The 30-year-old has spent nine years working for various organisations throughout the country.

He explained: "I've worked my way up through the ranks at Aish, Generation, Langdon and Magen Dovid Adom.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a leading charity in the Jewish community."

The Manchester United fan, who attended North Cheshire Jewish Primary School and Leeds University before moving to London, will be joined by three further new members - Charlotte Agran, Jacob Forman and Simon Rothstein.

Dan added: "We've moved from a small grass-roots charity to a more professional charity with a bigger impact.

"The charity has already implemented new brand guidelines, along with a new website and database.

"We are not going to change Mitzvah Day, we are just going to do it in a more professional way."

The Mitzvah Day team also includes founder and chairman Laura Marks, interfaith chairman Daniela Pears and engagement co-ordinator Gabriel Webber.

This year's Mitzvah Day takes place on, and around, Sunday November 27.

The charity is currently recruiting for seasonal staff based in Manchester.
