Volunteer firefighters Lügde
We all know how important it is to have a fire brigade available in each town and city. But many people do not know what it takes and what is needed to train and to become a firefighter.
Concept for Change knows what it takes and supports in particular fire brigade with people volunteering to become a firefighters, like in Lügde.
The volunteer brigade and firefighters in Lügde are doing a great job, not only in fighting fires but getting young boys and girls already involved in becoming a volunteering firefighter.
Concept for Change supported in the past the volunteer brigade in Lügde with collecting and donating gifts, which the fire brigade used in a tombola to raise funds for needed equipment to train young firefighters.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have anything you like to donate in kind or financially to support the fire brigade. We can get you the right contact or arrange it for you.
Concept for Change is planning and organizing workshops for children within the fields of creative art and STEM, to combine learning and fun as well as the use of technology to learn and for creativity.
Inspired by the “Big Bang Festival” in Belgium and other family events in Germany, Concept for Change likes to bring similar events to Lügde, showing that such events have a home in a small town as well as in large cities.
The first “Family Fun” was planned for September 2020, within the “Schützenhaus” in Lügde. Unfortunately, due to the COVID pandemic, Concept for Change had no other option than to cancel the event.
Everyone knows, such an event needs a lot of planning and preparation. With the current uncertainty of running events in the time of a pandemic, Concept for Change has decided not to waste the time and efforts of its volunteers, in planning events which cannot be executed. Therefore the Family Fun events will be postponed until execution can be guaranteed.
