The KNRM’s (Royal Dutch Rescue Society) open house was held on Saturday and was a huge success. Many donors took the opportunity to take a ride on a lifeboat.
At De Cocksdorp, KNRM volunteers were taking people out on the Beursplein lifeboat and at Oudeschild, they had the Zalm and the Cornelis Dito lifeboats at the ready. Fish was fried and volunteer lifesavers held readings and answered questions about the KNRM.
A memorable moment was the presentation of a cheque issued by Holiday Park De Krim to Mayor Uitdehaag, chair of the Texel lifeboat society. For about seven years now, De Krim has offered its guests ‘KNRM packages’ in this period of the year. For guests who take advantage of these packages, De Krim also pay one year’s contribution to the KNRM, which is valued at €25.00. In practice, by far the majority of these guests remain a donor for years afterwards. This year, De Krim’s packages supplied 161 new donors. The KNRM depends fully on donations, which it receives from donors and other parties. Thanks in part to De Krim, the number of new donors that are recruited for the KNRM station on Texel is by far the highest in the Netherlands.
