Kruisem, 07/12/22 — Today, the Managing Director of the Anticancer Fund, Lydie Meheus, was given a cheque worth EUR 28 245 by Paul Renson (Renson CEO) and Catherine Degreef (NOA outdoor living). The funds in question were raised through donations by invitees to the opening events for Renson Outdoor and NOA outdoor living at the end of October, following a suggestion that they support a good cause instead of bringing a gift.

Opening event gifts go to charity
Between 20 and 27 October 2022, Renson Outdoor and NOA outdoor living were officially inaugurated with a series of opening events. Both the new Renson Outdoor production hub and the unique inspiration park welcomed countless invitees between these dates, the vast majority of which keenly embraced the call to donate to a good cause. These donations eventually totalled EUR 28 245; a sum that was officially presented to the Anticancer Fund on 7 December.
According to Paul Renson: "Here at Renson, health is one of our top priorities. There’s a reason why our baseline is 'Creating healthy spaces'. To function as best as possible, people need to be able to live healthily, preferably in harmony with nature. Our newly opened site is a textbook example of that. With that in mind, the invitations to our opening events included a suggestion — if our guests preferred — to donate to a good cause instead of bringing a gift, We are delighted that these generous donations will be supporting the fantastic work that the Anticancer Fund are doing."
Driven by patients, encouraged by donations
"The Anticancer Fund is driven by patients, guided by science and encouraged by donations", Lydie Meheus, managing director of the Anticancer Fund, comments. "As an organisation, we connect all the parties involved in the battle against cancer, so that we can achieve better outcomes more quickly. Initiatives like this one by Renson help us finance clinical research into effective and cost-efficient cancer treatments and expand My Cancer Navigator, our information service for people with cancer."
