A large part of the money came from the numerous personal donations made by the employees at the company's headquarters in Memmingen. Added to those were the proceeds from a tombola that the workforce organises every year at the Christmas party. Thanks to the generous participation of the management, the amount was rounded up to the impressive sum of 12,500 euros. The St Nikolaus Children's Hospice in Bad Grönenbach benefits from 6500 euros. Kartei der Not and the Verein Notausgang each receive 3000 euros. The money has now been handed over by the Wilhelm Schropp, Chairman of the Works Council, to representatives of the aid foundations. Marlies Breher (Children's Hospice), Helmut Kustermann (Kartei der Not) and Otto Seybold (Notausgang) received the cheques and offered their heartfelt thanks for the generous support.
