Last year a group of enterprising Lions and two resourceful ladies from Les Vraies Richesse began building a Heraldic sponsored garden chalet for this remarkable Anderlecht-based day centre for handicapped people. Plank by plank from ground zero, the efforts of this team resulted in this spacious outdoor chalet that opens up garden and outdoor activities for Les Vraies Richesses guests. Administrators Bruna Sassi and Isabelle are as adept with a hammer and electric drill, as they are in running Les Vraies Richesses. In June, the chalet was inaugurated with a garden party and the addition of a Lions Plaque ‘Supported by Lions International ‘above the entrance. The plaque was donated by outgoing Lions Governor Hugues Angot as part of his campaign to leave a lasting legacy of Lions activities.
