Aedifica donates a duo bike to care home De Witte Bergen

The residents and the employees of care home De Witte Bergen in Lichtaart (Belgium) took their new duo-bike into use on 14 September. The bicycle was donated to them by Aedifica after a fundraising bicycle ride by ten colleagues in May.

The residents of De Witte Bergen can get some fresh air and stretch their legs in a new way. Thanks to the new duo-bike, residents accompanied by a colleague or family member will be able to to safely explore the neighbourhood and the nearby forests.

  • Thanks to the duo bike, our elderly will be able to experience precious moments. Residents who are less mobile will now again be able to reach places a bit further away. It is also a nice motivation to stay active.
    Christel Wils, Director of De Witte Bergen

The duo bike was donated to the care home after a fundraising bike ride. When a team event was announced in the Netherlands in May, ten Aedifica colleagues decided to cycle together from Brasschaat to Rotterdam and link a charity action to it. The colleagues collectively cycled more than 1,000 kilometres.

It is Aedifica’s ambition to bring positive, sustainable change to society. We strongly believe in supporting the mental and physical health of elderly people. This duo bike will not only provide mobility, but also create valuable moments of connection and joy.
