Wyckaert donates together with subcontractors and suppliers to charity

On Thursday, December 20th, our biggest event for charity took place. With a 56m long gocart train we cycled from the offices in Ghent to the "Warmste Week" (Warmest Week) village in Wachtebeke.

Under the expert guidance of Jos and his daughters of the company the Gocart Train, the police escort, the followers and the bicycle brigade of Wyckaert we arrived safely after a trip of 23 kilometers in the Warmest Week village. The donation of the cheque with a value of 10,500 € was the apotheosis of our joint commitment to charity. The paediatrics department at AZ St Lucas can start planning the realization of a new playground.

The enthusiasm and heart-warming reactions of our subcontractors and suppliers have not only ensured that we have achieved our goal, but that we were able to get to know them in a different way. In addition to business partners, they became partners in the Warmest Week event.

The campaign received a lot of media attention. For those who could not attend or for those who want to relive the day, here are some links to various media channels that reported the action: Warmste Week, AVS, het Nieuwsblad, Radio 2 Oost-Vlaanderen (drag the bar to 1:11:50), Studio Brussel (our arrival, drag the bar to 2.40.05) en het Laatste Nieuws

We want to thank everyone who was directly or indirectly involved in the project 10500 times and wish them a fantastic 2019.
