The region we come from is important to us, which is why we support regional clubs such as the ASV Lug / Schwanheim soccer team and the SV Spirkelbach table tennis club. We believe that team spirit and physical activity significantly improve health and want to give young people in the region the opportunity to get involved in a club.
For us, sustainable commitment goes hand in hand with social commitment and we are proud to have been able to financially support the KINDERHILFSPROJEKTE FATHER ALLAM GUNTUR/INDIEN e. V. foundation in India for many years. Just recently, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Lugina shoe factory, an amount of € 30,000 was donated to India in the name of Managing Director Willehad Bauer.
Among other things, our donation will be used to expand a home for the homeless, the construction of which began in Guntur in 2013. The extension will now create space for homeless children. Supporting this foundation is very important to us, and a generous amount was donated back in 2010 – back then for the company’s 50th anniversary. Since then, children whose parents have died of HIV have found a new home in an AIDS orphanage that was built in India thanks to our donations.
We are delighted to be able to use this money to make a lasting difference in social areas.
We have been particularly happy to support regional clubs and events for several years now. This includes the TeufelsTischTrail Hinterweidenthal. During the 6 or 10-kilometre run, the trail leads directly underneath Hinterweidenthal’s landmark: the run’s namesake, the Teufelstisch. We are delighted that the TTT is so popular with athletes in the region and that we can play our part in making the competition a success every year.
Not only enthusiastic runners, but also the bikers of the Southwest Palatinate are supported by us. At the so-called Höllenberg Trail Trophy, participants climb the “crispest trails in the South West Palatinate” – either on foot or on two wheels – and can celebrate their success at the subsequent after-race program.
Even our youngest children are not neglected in our development programs. As part of a three-day dance camp, 35 children aged 6 to 13 were able to take part in “Passion for Dance” during this year’s summer vacations. The choreography they learned was then presented to their proud parents on the last day of the camp.
The dance school that organizes the camp has been under the management of Annkatrin Heber since it was founded in 2016 and now has over 150 active dancers who can attend the courses from Monday to Friday.
