In October 2021, our EMZ team cycled over 1,300 km in the bicycle challenge. For each kilometre cycled, € 0.50 went into a donation pot, which the EMZ rounded up. On 22 December 2021, our Managing Director Deniz Beese and Kathrin Wieneke, Management Assistant, personally presented this donation of € 1,000.00 to the children’s and young people’s bereavement counsellor Petra Lessnow and Lambert Lütkenhorst, Chairman of the Board of Hospiz Freundeskreis e.V. in Dorsten.
Since 2002, the Hospiz Freundeskreis e.V. in Dorsten has been collecting donations for the outpatient hospice service as well as the palliative care unit of the Dorsten hospital to enable terminally ill people and their relatives to improve their care and to help them cope with their grief. Here, families and especially children and young people are given a familiar space to work through their grief due to experienced dying processes or other losses.
We are pleased to have brought joy to this great association at the end of the year through the sustainable and social commitment of our employees!
