On April 29th, NL Cares organizes the Night of the Volunteer. During this special edition of the Night, you and more than 1000 volunteers will roll up your sleeves and give vulnerable fellow citizens a wonderful evening, completely corona-proof.
The entire Netherlands bakes, you too?
It is a difficult time for everyone because of the coronavirus, but even more so for the vulnerable in society. Because residents of care institutions have to deal with visiting restrictions, loneliness is lurking. Drinking coffee and eating a cake together is unfortunately not possible yet, but that does not mean that there is no appetite for cake. That is why we organize a real baking party!
You can give the residents of the care institution a ray of hope by surprising them with your delicious baking! Think of cupcakes, a cake or another sweet treat. You make them especially happy with something from an authentic recipe.
Baking together is more fun than alone! After registration you will receive a confirmation email with a shopping list for the ingredients and a link to bake digitally with us and Elizabeth, the winner of Heel Holland Bakt. The digital baking workshop starts at 7:00 PM. Nice if you are here, but of course this is not mandatory.
PLEASE NOTE! Don't bring your cake the same evening, as the reception will be closed. Bring it to the location the next morning on April 30 between 10:00 - 11:00 am. Make sure you close your sweet treat well and hygienically with cling film and aluminium foil. Add a list of the ingredients, so they can take allergies into account.
Vreugdhof is a residential care centre for the elderly in Amsterdam South. De Vreugdhof is a comfortable care environment for all elderly people who need nursing, care, protection and guidance. Residents and employees will certainly appreciate your delicious cake!
