Stichting de Brug and Campagne team Huntington have both received cheques worth € 12,500 from the Van der Plas Foundation. The handing over event was conducted on 5 November, at the Floral Trade Group office during the VV Katwijk Gala.
The content of the checks was a complete surprise to both charities. After seeing the amounts there was celebration and gratitude. "We can serve meals from this for a year!" Reacted a happy Henk de Wit (Stichting de Brug).
After the Campaign team Huntington received the same amount of € 12,500, Nicoline van der Plas shared a moving story on the reason that motivates her to devote her heart and soul to this beautiful goal. They are the reasons why the Van der Plas Foundation was founded by Floral Trade Group (sponsor VV Katwijk): wanting to contribute the proverbial social contribution.
Campaign team Huntington and Stichting de Brug will receive a share of the total proceeds from VV Katwijk Gala, which will be spent on sporting and social issues. VV Katwijk is supported with the rest of the proceeds to maintain playing at the top amateur level. All in all, a successful evening: "Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin has thought along very well and has done a lot of work to make this evening a success", says Hans van der Plas (Van der Plas Foundation).
