Children’s Day at the Albert-Schweitzer-Kinderdorf
The Radisson Blu Hotel Erfurt & and the Football Club Rot-Weiß Erfurt put smiles on kids faces
„Show heart“, „do a good deed“ and „more than just football“ – On the 1st of June these words had real meaning for the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt and the Hotel Radisson Blu Hotel Erfurt. The youth team FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt and the Radisson Blu Hotel Erfurt hosted a sports afternoon with the children of the Albert-Schweitzer-Kinderdorf Erfurt.
When the young residents of the Kinderdorf got home from Kindergarten and School, they had no idea that they would be training with the youth team of the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt, practicing goal wall shooting, obstacle course races, and many different games. First all participants snacked on dairy products, provided by the Deutsche Milchkontor Erfurt. Obviously excited, the children made the most of this opportunity to test themselves against the professionals, and learn new skills, and gain a better understanding of the rules.
As highlight and successful ending to this social afternoon „Pros vs. Kids“ match took place, in which the young Kinderdorf residents gave their best against the youth players of the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt. The game of two 5 minutes halves ended with a 1:1 draw, which meant that the children won themselves tickets to a FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt match including a stadium tour which includes areas normally closed to the public. As an ending to this cheerful afternoon, where even the rain couldn’t dampen spirits, the hotel’s supplier Chefs Culinar sponsored some Thüringer Bratwurst sausages.
The idea for this social children’s day event by Radisson Blu and FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt had already been draughted in December 2014. The Responsible Business Team of Radisson Blu Hotels in Erfurt undertook the planning and organisation the afternoon together with the Albert-Schweitzer-Kinderdorf, and thanked all suppliers, customers and especially the youth players and management of the FC Rot-Weiß-Erfurt. Only with the support of the Chefs Culinar, Coca-Cola, the Deutschen Milchkontor Erfurt and Autohaus Vogel could this idea for Children’s Day be implemented so effectively.
