Guides and Scouts of Bertrange mobilise for the good cause
This Wednesday, 13th of January, the Guides and Scouts of Bertrange, represented by Jil Hahn and Pascal Theis, handed over a cheque for 1’600 € to the non-profit organisation Stëmm vun der Strooss.
As the director of the association Alexandra Oxacelay gratefully pointed out: “Before showing you around our various activities, I would first like to express my heartfelt thanks to all the members of the Bertrange Guides and Scouts. Thanks to your collection of donations, in November when you made Advent crowns to sell for the benefit of the Stëmm vun der Strooss, we are slowly but surely reaching the 30,000 € mark which will be used to finance our sheltered terrace at 7, rue de la fonderie in Hollerich.”
“During such an exceptional period, in times of crisis, it is important to keep in mind that supporting the most vulnerable people is of utmost importance. “Jil Hahn continued before talking to the underprivileged in the social restaurant. Therefore, the Guides and Scouts of Bertrange have decided to support the Stëmm vun der Strooss in their important work during the winter and especially during the pandemic.
Because of the current situation, the organisation of the Advent wreath sale has been difficult this year. But this did not prevent the Guides and Scouts of Bertrange from finding a solution and taking action. They managed to adapt and divided the 25 scouts and friends of the scouts into small groups of 4, and during the course of a week they were able to create 130 Advent wreaths, which they then sold on a stand in front of the church in Bertrange.
