5 Chr4 fond legatuddeling 2022

After 25 years as a popular chairman, former mayor Kaj Kjær had chosen to resign.

Newly elected to the Foundation is Michael Slavensky Dahl, and Vibeke Gamst was elected new chairman. Other members are Ernst Trillingsgaard, Jens-Christian Schmidt and Niels Voss Hansen.

Normally the distribution of donations has been held in early December.

Now everybody is served “red sausages” with beer/water or wine instead of “æbleskiver og Gløgg”

Jens-Christian Schmidt, Fund Administrator, welcomed the recipients, and gave the word to “Naturhornsblæserne” who gave a nice concert.

Thereafter the 18 recipients were called up and received their donation.

The various donations varied from dkr 1.980 to dkr 5.000, covering many good causes, all within the Foundation’s statutes.

Some of the recipients were:

“Obelpigerne” dkr 2.000
The author Uffe Westerberg, who publishes a new book about the “Churchill Club” dkr 5.000
Hospice Vangen, dkr 5.000
Lungeforeningens netværksgruppe dkr 3.000
The knitting girls at Vestergaarden” dkr 2.500
In addition, fourteen other good causes.

As something new, the Foundation had allied itself with Aalborg Kloster (Aalborg monastery) which had an exhibition about the Churchill Club, the first Danish resistance group, during the second world war.

At 16.45 we all went via the secret passage, to the monastery, where chairman Søren Wormslev told us about the monastery, as well as the exhibition.

Here the author Uffe Westerberg could supply with further facts.

Around 6 o’clock we could thank Søren Wormslev for a great experience.
