Volunteers from Collection Centres in Holland met to discuss new ideas, plans for the future fundraiser, and compared experiences of holding our vibrant fundraiser in the Netherlands.
Collection Centre helps in Indonesia
Our Grand Finale Collection Centre from Bali played once again - this time in aid of their local community in Lombok, Indonesia. The volunteers asked our permission to use part of the money raised in their winter fundraising efforts to buy equipment for a local hospital. The activists, who have been working to make the collection a success, saw that their help is needed locally, and they did not hesitate. Even though their main objective was to support Polish medicine they could not be indifferent to the struggle of local, Indonesian health care. Local hospitals suffered in the aftermath of an earthquake.
The Collection Centre stated that its intention is to buy a modern ultrasonography machine for a hospital in the city of Lambok, which has been tragically affected by an earthquake.
The team representing our charity will come face to face with players from TVN TV station. The charitable game took place for the second time, and we played to raise money to buy a state-of-the-art ambulance for a neonatal ward of a teaching hospital in Poznań.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has been awarded during Effie Poland Gala. We received two beautiful statuettes - one for our cooperation with partners and second for 26th Grand Finale fundraiser, which has set a new record - 126 000 000 PLN raised in aid of medicine!
