TUI employees in Hanover carried out a number of campaigns over a period of one year to raise funds for “Aegidius-Haus auf der Bult“, a nursing facility for children with severe disabilities or illnesses. They raised a total of around 32,000 euros, presented to the institution today.
On behalf of TUI, the cheque was presented by Sebastian Ebel, member of the Executive Board of TUI Group, Elke Hlawatschek, Managing Director TUI Foundation, works council representatives, and Nicole Wollmann, the initiator of the sponsorship scheme. “We are most impressed by the devotion shown by the employees of Aegidius-Haus in supporting the children and their families. They act in areas frequently marked by a lack of support – and this is where we would like to make a contribution,” said Ebel.
Dr Marion Hilmer, Managing Director of “Aegidius-Haus auf der Bult”, and Professor Hans-Jürgen Christen, Medical Director, received the donation on behalf of the institution. “Our sincere thanks go to all TUI employees for their great commitment in supporting our work. We really appreciate your donation, raised in the framework of TUI’s sponsorship scheme for our institution and in particular the children,” said Dr Marion Hilmer.
The donations will primarily serve to support the further conversion of the interior to enhance accessibility. Plans also include an expansion of the gardens: A sun deck will make the outdoor area feel cosier. The funds raised by the TUI employees will also go to special therapeutic programmes, e.g. visits by the Clinic Clowns or animal, music or art therapy.
