On Friday 23 November 2018 De Krim Texel took part in the Captain of Sales experience event for a whole day. We 'fought' with dozens of other teams to raise as much money as possible for the Royal Dutch Rescue Company (KNRM). In total this day raised € 117.500 for the KNRM!
Texel is inextricably linked to the sea. When you are on Texel you will probably also enjoy the sea, for example by swimming, sailing or surfing. How nice it is then to know that there are people willing to help you, should you run into any problems. After all, the sea is unpredictable.
The heroes of the KNRM volunteer on a daily basis to rescue people in distress. The KNRM is completely dependent on donations, which is why we believe it is important to support the KNRM.
Because the KNRM is completely dependent on donations, money is very welcome. Together with the other participants in the Captain of Sales event, we collected a total of € 117,500 for the KNRM.
We would like to thank our guests, owners of the houses on our holiday park and many other relations who donated a voluntary contribution to the KNRM. Great that we received so much support for this charity!
You will understand that the volunteers of the KNRM can only carry out their work properly and safely if they have the right resources at their disposal. That takes a lot of money! For example, a survival suit costs €1300,- and a training course can easily amount to about €4300,- per volunteer.
The action of De Krim Texel is over, but do you still want to support the KNRM? This can be done directly through the KNRM.
Captain of Sales is an annual experience event of the KNRM. The participating (sales) teams raise donations for the KNRM through challenging assignments. The team with the highest amount of donations wins the title Captain of Sales. Because Texel cannot do without the work of the KNRM, De Krim Texel has committed itself selflessly to this in 2018.
