In what has established itself as a Muscles for Charity tradition, on Saturday 18th May a combined team of UK & Belgian volunteers made the journey over to Tongerlo Abbey to help the abbey with garden maintenance.
The team (led by Captain Johan) worked in the Da Vinci Garden, tidying and weeding.
In words by brother Kris:
“Weeds were removed, paths tidied, lawns lined, ivy pruned … They went hard against it and not as hairdressers but as ‘garden hairdressers’ – they redesigned part of our garden.”
The team was rewarded by an impressive lunch buffet and some of the abbey’s infamous beer.
The Brits were once again kindly hosted by the Rens in their family cabin, who made sure their guests were always well fed.

A job of Fun, Sweat and Beer – here’s to many more international jobs in the future.
