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 Convention in Brussels!
The amazing people working at the Collection Centre in Brussels came up with an idea to organise a meeting of volunteers and activists involving in running Grand Finale fundraisers in ten different countries across the globe. Not only did the representatives of the Collection Centre had the opportunity to exchange ideas, tips, and tricks on running a fundraiser outside its home country, but also they got to talk about their work with the team from the Foundation.
One thing was putting a face to a name and meeting people who took it upon themselves to make Grand Finale events happen in Belgium, Germany, Norway, England, Scotland, the US, the Netherlands, and Ireland. We got to spend 3 days with some of the most driven and enthusiastic people on the planet, who manage - despite all odds - organise vibrant celebrations for their communities.
Our charity supports Polish Mountain Volunteer Search & Rescue teams! This time we donated 72 fully equipped "rescue backpacks" and professional paramedic bags worth over 500 000 PLN!
