The Belgian Muscles team have been an integral and important part of the overall success of Muscles for Charity, and were represented by ‘Captain’ Johan and Rob when the UK team celebrated the amazing achievement of 10,000 voluntary hours.
The celebration held on Sunday 16th September 2012 was the highlight of an extended weekend which involved both representatives enjoying fun, friendship, mischief and a Muscles job, in addition to joining UK Muscles volunteers and a selection of recipients from the 300 projects. Known affectionately by the ‘Brits’ as the ‘Chocolate Boys’ they were great ambassadors for their country and the Muscles ethos.
June 2012 – Rumst Removal project
‘Captain’ Johan led a team of eight Muscles volunteers to an early 19th century house in Rumst where they joined family members to help clear a house that included a former printing business. Narrow stair ways, a combination of rooms, attic spaces challenged the teams dexterity, but were met with humour, ingenuity, determination and ‘muscle power’.
