Night of the Volunteer 2019

On this yearly night, around 80 volunteers in The Hague will be helping people in their city by giving them a fun night with company and personal attention. After the activity, from 20:30h all volunteers are welcome to have a drink and share experiences at Bleyenberg in the center. The Night of the Volunteer 2019 is made possible by Klaverblad Foundation and Fonds1818.

 

Activity

This evening the residents of elderly home Florence Jonker Frans are in for a real treat as a festive Dutch party will be organised for them. Besides some traditional 'sing-a-long' Dutch songs, we will treat everyone with typical Dutch food treats. Bitterballen, cheese, stroopwafels (syrup waffles) but there also will be a real popcorn and cotton candy machine; a festive evening guaranteed! As a volunteer you will help prepare the venue, pick up the elderly from their apartments, prepare snacks and make sure everyone (including yourself of course) has something to eat and drink. Most importantly is to get to know one another and enjoy a festive evening together with the residents and other volunteers.

 

Targetgroup & impact

The residents loves it when people form outside come and have a chat with them. This way the elderly are less lonely and enjoy a fun night (something that doesn't happend very often but is very much appreciated)! You will prepare and serve them drinks and snacks, chat with the elderly and maybe even have a dance with them! Be prepared that elderly have a different pace than you are used to. If you want to enjoy the activity fully, it is important to take your time and speak calmly.

 

Location

The residential care centre Jonker Frans is located in the centre of the Valkenboskwartier. This neighbourhood has a large diversity of cultures. The cultural characteristics of the neighbourhood is reflected in the composition of the residents and the employees of the care centre. The centre has a warm and cosy atmosphere; in which all the cultural backgrounds of the residents get a place.
