Red Cross Luxembourg Open Day – June 13th
This year the Red Cross celebrates its 100th Birthday! You will of course have heard of the Red Cross of Luxembourg – but were you aware of just how many activities they organise across the country to help people in need? From social groceries, housing and welfare services, social cloakrooms, to providing summer camps for impoverished children, and assisting the elderly – the list goes on and on…
To highlight all this hard work, the charity are holding a summer open day on Saturday 13th June between 9am-5pm.
This is a day focused on letting the general public know exactly what they do, and it is also an opportunity to reach out to people in need with advice, information, sales of second hand goods, clothes and furniture.
Volunteers are needed on the day – and to set things up beforehand – in order to make the event a success. Languages are not required, but English or French is needed to be briefed by the organisers. Could this be for you?!…
