On Friday, 10 December, Ramon Koller, Project Manager Modifications, delivered a pair of Business Class seats to Bern where they will be auctioned off to raise funds for the “Jeder Rappen zählt” project (Every Penny Counts).
Before being donated, the seat combination underwent a few technical modifications in the workshop in order to be suitable for a place in someone’s home. This work involved replacing the reading lamps and sealing off the openings for the inflight screen and handset. After the auction, we will transport the seat pair free of charge to the residence of the winning bidder. In addition, a number of cabin crew members have volunteered to man the telephones in the Happy Days charity phone-a-thon on 18 December.
The “Jeder Rappen zählt” project is a charity campaign organised by Swiss Solidarity in partnership with Swiss Television and Radio DRS, with the support of numerous prominent individuals and businesses. This year, fundraising takes place December 13-18 for the benefit of children victimised by war. The fundraising drive will include a series of auctions and a spectacular music event in the square in front of the parliament building in Bern.
