LegatmodtagereThree expectant representatives arrived at the Guilds room in Jens Bangs Stenhus, where the chief-bencher, Niels Voss Hansen, and the benchers awaited them. After a brief welcome the chief-bencher began the donations.

The three recipients of the donations were: The Colitis-Crohn Society, Aalborg Hunting

Club´s Nature-horn Blowers, and Aalborg Pensioners Orchestra.

The Colitis-Crohn Society was represented by Gitte Andersen from the society’s local branch in Northern Jutland. Colitis-Crohn is a disease in the large intestine, and the society got the donation for their work of information about this disease and its problems. The donation was DKK 4,000.

Aalborg Hunting Club Nature-horn Blowers was represented by Per Iversen, who on behalf of the club received the donation, DKK 2,000. The motivation for this donation is a wish to keep alive this musical speciality, and a wish to help the club going on representing Denmark at rallies around in Europe.

The third recipient was Aalborg Pensioners Orchestra, which got the donation partly because of its slogan: “We don’t eat pills – we make music”. This donation was also DKK 2,000.

The chief-bencher said on the occasion: “We would very much have liked the donations to have been bigger, and that there have been more of them, but the abnormal low rates of interest these days does that the yield of the capital of both the Christian the Fourth´s Guild and its Foundation is almost non-existing, so that there isn’t much to donate”.

Nevertheless, it was three happy representatives, that were leaving Christian The Fourth´s Guild-room and Jens Bangs Stenhus on that day.
