A celebration for more than 50 physically and mentally disadvantaged people
„Under The Banyan Tree Centre” is an organisation that completely commits to the support and care of physically and mentally disadvantaged people. Over 30 children and adolescents as well as 35 adults are cared for and offered therapeutic support by the organisation's employees.
When Lyconet Merchant Marketer Sara Yang heard of "Under the Banyan Tree" and got to know the people behind this organisation, she decided to organise an unforgettable party for the beneficiaries along with the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation and numerous volunteers.
Over 30 Lyoness Loyalty Merchants, Lyconet Marketers and voluntary helpers joined forces and the preparations were quickly well underway. Craft booths were built up, food was prepared and goodie bags were compiled. A stage was also constructed on which over the course of the day a live band as well as several outstanding singers performed.
On arrival, the physically and mentally disadvantaged children, adolescents and adults were lovingly received. Together everyone danced, sang, ate and tinkered. Everyone present also had the opportunity to have their face painted, their nails polished and to take a group photo. The musical acts garnered quite the attention, as did the presents. The successful surprise not only brought joy to the beneficiaries but also to the numerous helpers who sacrificed their day in order to look after the wards of the "Under the Banyan Tree Centre".
We would like to thank Sara Yang as well as all the helpers and sponsors whose support and time enabled this amazing "Angel for a Day" campaign.
A very special thank you also goes to the following people:

The aim of this project was to organise a party for physically and mentally disadvantaged children, adolescents and adults who are taken care of by the"Under the Banyan Tree Centre." The beneficiaries should enjoy a day filled with joy and feel 100% included.
