24.12.18 Lydian and ‘De Warmste Week’
Lydian has participated in ‘De Warmste Week’ (an initiative of the Flemish radio station StuBru) by raising money for various good causes. Some of our colleagues cooked something and others were happy to donate some money for it. Not only was it a way to connect with each other and to bring us all closer together, we were also happy to contribute to these causes.
Each Lydian office chose a specific good cause to donate to:
- Brussels chose Stichting tegen Kanker/Fondation contre le Cancer, whose main goal is to financially support research into treating cancer (to increase the chances of survival and to improve the quality of life both medically and psychosocially).
- Hasselt decided to support Huis Erika Thijs vzw, which offers a place for cancer patients to meet and receive help, support and guidance in all ways except medical. The house is a place where the guests and their family can talk about their fears, pain and doubts.
- Antwerp selected Surplus, whose main goal is to support cancer patients by organizing enjoyable activities and providing distraction when they are receiving treatment.
Why are we sponsoring 3 cancer-related causes? Because each of us knows someone who is, or has been, afflicted by this terrible disease. We feel called upon to support these friends, family members or colleagues in every way we can.
In total, we raised 4.617,8 EUR which we have divided into 3 equal donations of 1,539.27 EUR for each good cause.
We would like to thank all our colleagues for their help in making this such a success and we hope that we have helped.
May this festive season sparkle and shine and may all of your wishes come true in 2019.
From all of us at Lydian
