A warm handover in Aumont (FR)
On the first of February, we received a lovely cheque from Sylvia Volery-Morattel. At the Christmas market in Aumont (FR), which she organises, she collected donations for Just for Smiles by selling chalet soup, tea and mulled wine last december. In addition, the generous craftswoman donated 10% of the sales of her handmade pottery to our foundation. As our donor explained to the newspaper La Broye (photo), which was present at the donation ceremony, as was Le Républicain: “I give part of the income each year to a regional association. For me, it is important to think about the needs next door. I was very moved when I learned that this sum would provide a catamaran trip for 16 beneficiaries.
Every donation counts
Indeed, it is also through these funds raised by private donors such as Sylvia Volery-Morattel that our foundation can continue and expand its sports and leisure activities for people with disabilities. (ew)
