I visited Tieme and his family today to handover our 2021 European Jimmy’s Ride donation. They were very happy and grateful with the result. We would like to thank everyone who supported the 2021 6th European Jimmy’s Ride in any way and made it such a success again.
Today we went to the Sophia Children’s Hospital in Rotterdam. This is the hospital where Tieme goes for his examinations and treatments for his Cystic Fibrosis.
There, on behalf of the European Jimmy’s Ride, we handed over our toy donation for the CF department’s special examination room.
Special thanks are due for the help of Dean Wells and the company where he works Tesco Toys ltd of Great Britain. Thanks to their very generous donation, we were able to make an extra large donation.
The closet was even too small for all the toys.
