Coroplast Global | News | 19 Oct 2018 Charity Spinning for the Bergisches Kinder- und Jugendhospiz Burgholz

"Pedalling for a good purpose" was the motto that Natalie Mekelburger, Managing Director of Coroplast, had called on her employees to follow. In cooperation with the fitness studio Sports Up XXL in Schwelm, every minute ridden on the spinning bike was converted into a donation of 3.00 euros. The reason for the donation campaign is Coroplast's ninetieth company anniversary this year, during which the doors are open for employees, their families and partly also for interested third parties and friends of the company.

As a company, we assume responsibility and want to play an active role in shaping society and our environment.

In addition to the employees of Coroplast, fitness enthusiasts from Wuppertal trampled and sweated together an impressive sum during the campaign period of just under two weeks, which the Coroplast company boss rounded up to 25,000 euros and handed over yesterday to Kerstin Wülfing, manager of the Bergisches Kinder- und Jugendhospizes Burgholz. "It is part of our self-image that we enrich life in Wuppertal around our headquarters. As a company, we assume responsibility and want to play an active role in shaping society and our environment. We are committed to the areas of education, sport, social affairs and culture and support institutions that ensure the stability of our social environment and contribute to humanity and human dignity," said Natalie Mekelburger, summarizing the company's social commitment.

Kerstin Wülfing, Head of the Burgholz Hospice: "The care of the sick children is financed only to a certain extent by the cost bearers. There are almost no funds for the reception and care of the family members. So that all affected families have the opportunity to stay together with their children in the house, the stay is financed by donations. In order to make the stay possible for all families and to make special offers and activities financially viable, we are particularly pleased about such generous support".
