A total of 42,000 euros was collected for three regional institutions – recipients are Treffpunkt e. V. Nuremberg, Förderverein der Spiel- und Lernstuben e. V. Erlangen and the association “Gärten der Begegnung – Interkulturelle Gärten Bayreuth e. V.” – Successful cooperation of Sparda-Bank Nuremberg with the “Freude für alle” campaign of the Nürnberger Nachrichten newspaper
Northern Bavaria – In the past few weeks, the people of Northern Bavaria have once again demonstrated that they share Sparda-Bank Nürnberg eG’s sense of social responsibility. The Sparda Christmas benefit campaign 2019/2020 has once again achieved a great donation result of 42,000 euros. The money will now benefit three social institutions from the region in equal parts: Treffpunkt e. V. Nuremberg, Förderverein der Spiel- und Lernstuben e. V. Erlangen and the association “Gärten der Begegning – Interkulturelle Gärten Bayreuth e. V.” – each initiative can therefore look forward to a grant of 14,000 euros. Stefan Schindler, Chairman of the Board of Sparda-Bank Nuremberg, sums up: “The Sparda Christmas benefit campaign was once again a great success. It is also an expression of the great solidarity and willingness to help in the region. The donations can do a lot of good – for the community, for children and young people and for integration.”
Making a difference for the weak benefit campaign was once again carried out in cooperation with the “Joy for All” campaign of the Nürnberger Nachrichten. A great commitment to social participation unites the three beneficiary institutions: Treffpunkt e. V. from Nuremberg uses the language of music to reach young people from socially weaker families. In the “raise your voice” project, they can process their worries and thoughts in their own pieces of music.
The inclusive project “Learning to swim through play” by Spiel- und Lernstuben e. V. from Erlangen focuses on the joy of movement in water. Children with special developmental risks are gently introduced to the element of water and swimming and can gain more self-confidence through the specific teaching units. The association “Interkulturelle Gärten e. V.” creates cross-generational and cross-national encounters in green spaces in Bayreuth. On an area of 2,400 square metres, plants are planted, weeded and harvested together – and along the way, appreciative togetherness is lived.
