Samen Sterk Estafette

The 'Samen Sterk Estafette Centrum Duiven' starts.

An appeal to all entrepreneurs (shopkeepers and catering) of Centrum Duiven, to also contribute from this angle. We start with the Mayor of Duiven; Mr. Huub Hieltjes and then go into the shopping center.

The newspaper article oublished in Duiven Post, Zevenaar Post and Westervoort Post, in which the Samen Sterk Estafette for Mireille is brought to the attention, can be read below under Publicity.

The entrepreneurs in the city centre are provided with information about the action in advance. In the week before Christmas we call all retailers / catering establishments to ask if we can also put a check mark for them

The Samen Sterk Relay; Centre Pigeons in action for Mireille!

Black Friday

We are now (end of November 2022) a quarter of the amount past a little bit, but we are far from there. And Mireille's neck needs urgent surgery. That's why a call around Black Friday! Have you taken advantage of a Black Friday deal somewhere? SUPER NICE! If you want to donate something of your benefit to help give Mireille a future again, that's EXTRA NICE!

Will you share a little advantage with Mireille?

High energy costs

A wonderful idea from a fellow sufferer and her family, where they immediately put their words into action; donating the money to offset the high energy costs. Because do you not need this compensation yourself or do you know people who do not need it? Our question is then to donate this amount to Mireille's foundation to help her achieve her goal.
