Generous donors helped to raise 6,500 euros for needy children in Luxembourg through the Coins for Kids tins.

The Lions Club Erasmus has been running the Coins for Kids campaign in Luxembourg since 2001. Its iconic tins, located in shops around the country, encouraged people to dig deep and raise a massive 6,500 euros for a children's playground at the Foyer Paula Bové women's refuge.

The money provided a third of the costs for renovating the play area, which is managed by the Fondation Maison de la Porte Ouverte. It also ensured that the facilities met the latest safety standards.

LC Erasmus president Petra Berndt threw the support of the club behind the shelter when she heard about the difficult conditions and work carried out there. ‘We immediately agreed: Here we want to help!’, she said, adding: ‘We are very happy to support the Foundation with this targeted donation to renovate the children’s playground.’

Since the Coins for Kids campaign launch 11 years ago, it has helped generate more than 140,000 euros in donations, which have been divided between local and overseas children's projects.
