Why do we organise this New Year’s action?
Because we meet single people without families and people on low incomes through the distribution of our meals, we want to
give joy and happiness in a festive and comfortable atmosphere.
This evening is different from the other Tuesday evenings. It is a real festive meal with a starter, a main course provided by the “Choux de Bruxelles” caterer, dessert and coffee.
But what would this New Year’s party be without a small gift?
For this purpose, every year since 2006 we have organised a “shoebox” gift collection (for more information, click on the tab “shoebox” on the homepage)
These “shoeboxes” are distributed after dinner to all the evening’s 300-400 guests. Through this initiative, the 80 to 90 volunteers present understand better what the word solidarity means. It shows a great sensitivity and provokes very strong emotions.
“A smile, a thank you are such beautiful expressions of joy that every minute, every hour we have dedicated of our free time are forgotten”
Our association does not carry any political or religious ideology.
Our only purpose is to help our neighbour whatever he is, from wherever he comes
