The sun was shining brightly in Siegburg, when the children’s home ‘Pauline von Mallinckrodt’ celebrated its 110th anniversary with a huge children’s party and a charity run on Saturday, July 6th. In addition to paying the entry fees for all employees who were participating in the run, Siegwerk supported the ‘Pauline-Kids’ by donating a very special highlight for their event.
The great rush on the pavilion with the Siegwerk banner, which started right with the opening of the anniversary party, held up for the whole afternoon. For many of the young inhabitants of the children’s home and their visitors, the colorful airbrush tattoos that were provided here were the ultimate highlight of the event. More than 150 children and teenagers enthusiastically took the Siegwerk-financed opportunity to have their arms, legs or shoulders professionally decorated with their favorite motives by two specially trained children’s entertainers.
In the meantime, the ‘Siegwerk Running Team’ was supporting the ‘Pauline-Kids’ with their sporty contribution. In sweat-inducing midsummery weather, the eleven Siegwerkers who participated in the two charity runs ran distances of 5 or 10 kilometers for the good cause. After the runs, every participant has been awarded a certificate as well as a special T-shirt. The entry fees from the runs are completely donated for the benefit of several projects of the children’s home.
