INLOOPHUIS Medemblik at Oosterhaven adopted by Dutch Dragon Association and Yanmar

When we will enjoy our Dragon Gold Cup racing and Happy Hours, we easily forget that other people struggle with medical or mental issues. To share the joy of the Dragon Gold Cup event with less favourable people at Oosterhaven, both Yanmar and the Dutch Dragon Association will adopt the regular visitors/ guests of ' INLOOPHUIS ' at Oosterhaven 11 in Medemblik during the Event. INLOOPHUIS offers coaching and a warm welcome for cancer patients and people with mental issues like burn out or anorexia. Their close family can also find support, someone who will listen to their concerns or someone who will give them a hug when times are difficult for them. During several Happy Hours with 'life music' the guests of Inloophuis will be invited to join us for a drink and a chat. We also invite the participants of the Dragon Gold Cup 2019 to follow the example of the Dutch Dragon Association and Yanmar in sponsoring the modest budget of this social initiative of an ex cancer patient and his wife. The INLOOPHUIS foundation has a board of trustees and is an ANBI Foundation (registered with fiscal advantage) . Details at their website www.inloophuismedemblik.nl or donate at IBAN NL83 RABO 0387530924 for Inloophuis Medemblik. And....you can alway walk in at No. 11 for a coffee and a chat when we have to wait in port for a delay.
