Greetings, everyone: Have you heard the news?

Say hello to Lennart Zandbergen (2nd year, treasurer), Kelsey Bischot (2nd year, communication officer), Simon van der Staaij (3rd year, chair), Lilly Wiggers (3rd year, secretary), Anniek Barnhoorn (2nd year, general board member), and Marina del Valle (1st year, general board member).   

Say hello to Lennart Zandbergen (2nd year, treasurer), Kelsey Bischot (2nd year, communication officer), Simon van der Staaij (3rd year, chair), Lilly Wiggers (3rd year, secretary), Anniek Barnhoorn (2nd year, general board member), and Marina del Valle (1st year, general board member).   

And, as has become a tradition, we organised a week full of volunteering opportunities in the third week of this block. Together we helped a woman living alone with removing wallpaper and with cleaning and painting the walls of her living room. She now enjoys a living room that is painted in a fresh colour. Since she was financially and physically unable to accomplish this herself, she really appreciated our efforts.

We also help twice helped at an event of Resto Van Harte, a local organisation that stimulates social cohesion by bringing together different groups for healthy, festive meals. First we went to The Hague Educational Film Festival, hosted by a local school, where we helped with serving. Later we were involved with the preparations for and serving of a dinner for people in social isolation.

Check out some more photos via our Facebook page.

Interested in volunteering outside LUC-V Weeks? Resto VanHarte and other organisations need volunteers every week, and they would be more than happy to welcome some LUC students to come visit more often! Contact one of our board members or send an email to luc.volunteer@gmail.com if you’re interested in these or other volunteering opportunities.

See you next block!
