Three donation checks handed over
18. Dec. 2018
On December 18, 2018, the Friedensau Pottery Club could hand over three donation checks: two checks with a value of €1,500 each were given to the "Kinderhospiz Magdeburg" (a children's hospice in Magdeburg) and the "Hospiz im Luisenhaus" (the hospice in the Luisenhaus), both run by the foundations "Pfeifferschen Stiftungen". The third check with a value of €1,096 was given to the campgrounds in Friedensau. Hanna Klingenberg of Pfeifferschen Stiftungen received both checks for the hospices in Magdeburg. The check for the campgrounds was handed over to Tobias Koch, Managing Director of Zeltplatz Friedensau gGmbH, who informed us that the money would be used for the purchase of two refrigerators and, thus, would benefit children and young people attending camps in Friedensau. The money donated to the hospices, that are in need of large donations every year for the financing of all the different tasks, will support their work.
The donation originated from the proceeds of the Pottery Bazaar on Sunday, November 25, 2018. The pottery, produced during one year by creative women, such as cups, mugs, jugs, bowls, ceramic figures for the garden, bird baths, light houses, pyramids, Santa Clauses and snowmen, and other colorful Christmas decorations found new owners one Sunday before the 1st Sunday in Advent. The Pottery Bazaar, which traditionally takes place one Sunday before the 1st Sunday in Advent, was established 19 years ago by the Friedensau Women's Pottery Club to support regional charitable projects. Therefore, the next date of the bazaar should already be entered into the calendar today: On November 24, 2019, the 20th Pottery Bazaar will take place in Friedensau!
