Funnyman and impersonator Paul Martell M.C.’d the evening at the city’s Sofitel Hotel getting loads of laughs from the 500-strong audience who also marvelled at his amazing impersonations.

14-yr-old Jack Vidgin announced that his first album had gone gold. Not bad for a lad who has been homeless himself since the age of three and who told J-Wire that there were many nights spent sleeping in a car with his mother Rachel.

Vidgin, who toured Jewish House a few weeks ago, is no stranger to the services the care organisation has on offer, including a well-equipped refuge.

But the teenager’s star is now well and truly on the rise and he is leaving the poverty line well behind him.

Jewish House CEO told J-Wire: “It was wonderful to receive such wide support from the community and messages from all levels of government right up to the Prime Minister.”

A special award was made to Paul Hotz who has retired as a Jewish House board member after 20 years’ service.
