Our annual event took place on 26 April 2022 at the Théâtre des Galeries. The play was under the High Patronage of Her Majesty Queen Paola. Many personalities attended the evening, in particular Mr Vervoort, the Minister President of the Brussels-Capital Region, who did us the honour and pleasure of being with us that evening, thus acknowledging the work done by Constellations.
This evening represented a great moment of emotion for almost all the participants, after a two-year interruption due to the Covid epidemic. The pleasure of meeting again was increased by a series of good news which are detailed below.
The theatre evening was given in support of the ASBL la Forestière for the reconstruction of the current day centre which is in a state of total disrepair. This centre currently accommodates 64 adults with mental disabilities. A reconstruction is necessary otherwise the current centre will have to close. The proceeds from the theatre evening and the accompanying events - tombola, sale of champagne, will contribute to the €300,000 that Constellations ASBL will donate to the Forestière ASBL at the theatre evening in 2023.
In their respective speeches, Constellations president Christine Berlemont and vice-president Claude Meyer recalled a series of good news, first of all the opening of the day centre for multi-handicapped children in Anderlecht with the Creb in September 2021, as well as the opening of the Piloux crèche in December 2021.
They also announced that the construction of the dual diagnosis centre of La Maisonnée in Ittre was nearing completion, scheduled for the end of June 2022, with an opening in November, when an operating budget will be available.
The most spectacular event of the evening was the presentation of a cheque for €650,000 to the ASBL Creb for the reconstruction of Creb Woluwe. The day and residential centres of Creb Woluwe currently accommodate 55 and 27 multi-disabled children respectively. The presence of asbestos makes reconstruction absolutely necessary.
The presentation of the cheque for € 650,000 represents the work done during the Covid period.
Mr. Alain Verriest and Mrs. Danielle Van Den Bossche, respectively president of the board of directors of the ASBL Creb and director of the Creb Woluwe for many years and responsible for the reconstruction project, received the cheque to the hearty applause of the audience.
There was also a successful raffle and an auction of the Red Devils' team jersey signed by all the players.
The play "Un petit jeu sans conséquence", given as a preview, was very amusing and the actors excellent. The audience's reaction was naturally very warm.
The evening was a great success. Thank you all for your presence and support.
