On October 16, 2023, Machinefabriek Boessenkool presented a check worth € 4,500 to the charity: Stadsboerderij Beeklust in Almelo. During the festive opening of the new Boessenkool building, guests made a voluntary contribution instead of gifts. Gaby Bossink, Personal Supervisor at Stadsboerderij Beeklust, received the check for the proceeds: “An incredibly nice amount, great!”
Information boards and new shed
Naturally, the amount was received with great gratitude. It is also immediately clear what the amount will be spent on. For example, new information boards will be installed at the various meadows about the animals present. In addition, Stadsboerderij Beeklust has been saving for a new barn in the so-called ‘cuddle meadow’ for some time now. Gaby: “With this amount we also hope to be able to realize the new shed more quickly, because the current one is in urgent need of replacement. We would also like to get rid of the current regularly recurring repair work.”
Eelco Osse from Machinefabriek Boessenkool: “The well-being and development of our employees also comes first in our company. Create connection and help each other. Our new office building and the renovated facade also contribute to this. This was the reason and reason for choosing this charity. We wanted to keep it close to home and preferred a small-scale project. Stadsboerderij Beeklust was soon discussed. It is fantastic how the employees and many volunteers of Stadsboerderij Beeklust ensure that participants have a pleasant environment every day, with a lot of love and patience, now and in the future.”
