Annelies Brewaeys and Julie Neefs are both coming to Peru to volunteer this summer. They did not want to arrive empty-handed, so they decided to take action! On May 17th, they organised a spaghetti banquet at Grimbergen (Vlaams-Brabant, Belgium) and served self-made spaghetti. Julie’s and Annelies’s parents and friends lend a helping hand. Fortunately, since almost 200 people showed up! Moreover, they encouraged those who could not be present to deposit money into their bank account. Everyone was surprised with the 2,685 Euros revenue! Stefanie, who had just arrived in Belgium, was given the cheque on 26. Furthermore, Ingrid Vandekelder took care of a small shop with Peruvian handicraft during the banquet and thanks to a couple of enthusiastic assistants an additional 400 Euros were raised!
Many thanks to all the organisers, collaborators, dinner guests, assistants and to those who were absent but still deposited money!
