Caring Max keeps mum about work with homeless

THAT’S MY BOYS: Proud dad Simon Patnick with, from left, barmitzvah boy Max, Louie, Harry and Sammi

BARMITZVAH boy Max Patnick is already following in his mother’s footsteps.

The Elstree youngster, who was barmitzvah at Radlett United Synagogue, is a member of Urban Cherubs — a group of youngsters who help the homeless. The Cherubs are part of Urban Angels — set up by Bury-born mum Lisa.

The Yavneh College pupil accompanies his mum to hand out food and supplies to the homeless on the streets of London.

He also inherited his love of Manchester City from his mother’s side of the family, and has a soft spot for Sheffield Wednesday, thanks to Sheffield-born dad Simon.

Max has three brothers — Sammi, 13, 10-year-old Harry and Louie, eight.

Present at the simcha were grandparents Valerie and Peter Goldstone, of Lytham St Annes, and Anne and Edward Patnick, of Sheffield.

Max also loves rugby and playing on his Playstation.

MANCHESTER United fan Aaron Colwyn’s barmitzvah at Heaton Park Synagogue held extra significance.

For the evening event at the AJ Bell Stadium, Salford, was the final one catered by I&M Caterers’ Ian Mack and Mike Stoops.

The King David High School pupil is the son of Lance and Michelle Colwyn.

He is a keen magician, and even performed a card routine on stage during the evening.

Grandparents Sonia and Simon Clynes, and Anthony Colwyn were in attendance, as were siblings Abbigail, 20, and 11-year-old Alex.
