IMG_2833 Spende Abikollekte kleinMarl, 1st July 2016. On this day their reports were ceremonially presented to the pupils of Albert-Schweitzer-/Geschwister-Scholl-Gymnasium in Marl who had passed their Abitur (school leaving examination). The special day included an ecumenical service which was celebrated in Saint Michael’s Church with Reverend Christian Zimmer and Pastoral Assistant Günter Tewes. “My time lies in your hands …” was the topic of the service, which Lara Erwig, Hanna den Hartog, Franka Hubert, Svenja Swoboda, Theresa Mudlaff, Till Strunk, Malte and Niklas Lücking and Paula Zimmer had prepared with great commitment together with their teacher Regina Giegel. On the pupils’ request the 830 euros of the collection this year went to the Elena Bless Foundation, which supports work placements abroad und school exchange programmes for young people who love travelling and contact to other people just the same as Elena.
