Gelsenkirchen hose manufacturer NORRES has upheld its long-term Christmas tradition of making a donation to the Arche Noah. By doing this, the firm supports the work of the only Gelsenkirchen children’s hospice in the region.
During the official donation ceremony, Frank Petersen, chairman of the Förderverein Kinderhospiz Gelsenkirchen, thanked NORRES for the many years of continuous commitment.
NORRES Schlauchtechnik has been promoting the work of the Arche Noah in Gelsenkirchen since 1999. The donation is not only a sum of money, but also represents the sympathy and personal contact NORRES enjoys with the Arche Noah, which has existed for many years. “It is important for NORRES that with its traditional Christmas donation, it is involved with the Ache Noah and thereby in a small way supports the families in the region who really need help,” explained Martina Haarer, authorized representative and manager of internal sales, with regard to the many years of good contact between the Arche and NORRES.
The design of the Arche Noah as a facility is unique throughout Germany, and has two functions: It is a short-term facility for children with multiple severe disabilities, as well as a hospice for terminally ill children. The aim of the establishment is to support and relieve families by professionally caring for and supervising the children and young people.
The Arche Noah in Gelsenkirchen describes itself as a “House of Life” - reflected in the bright, inviting and colorful decoration of the rooms and grounds.
