News from Berkelland » Food bank collection on Sunday 6 November

By the editors on 31/10/2022

NEEDE – Life has become significantly more expensive in recent months due to inflation. The cost of living has risen dramatically, and many families and the elderly are feeling this. “We at Neede Food Bank are happy to lend a hand so that everyone in the Netherlands can put a proper meal on the table”. Says Janneke Rohaan from the Food Bank’s working group in PKN-Neede parish.

“On Sunday 6 November we will again be under the tower in the Grote Kerk, Kerkplein 1 in Neede from 9:15 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. to collect non-perishable food items, washing powder, toothpaste, soap and shampoo for those in need. There is also a milk mill if you prefer to donate money. We get groceries from there a few times a year. If you are a member of the Postnummerlotteriet, you have probably received a vegan voucher. If you don’t use it, you can return it to us. Please activate the voucher, otherwise the voucher cannot be used. We can also make good use of Douwe Egberts and AH Perla value points. Coffee is made from it. Will you come by on Sunday morning to be able to do something together for all the people (also in Neede) who can no longer support themselves financially?”.

Berkelland’s first Parkinson’s café opens in Neede

NEEDE – A special ‘café’ is organized every month in the meeting room Het Filter in the Kronenkamp Nature Park in Neede for people with Parkinson’s disease, their partners and other interested parties. Visitors can share their experiences every second Thursday of the month, but togetherness is also very important “It is easier to exchange experiences if you talk to someone who has experienced it themselves”, says Johan Lindner, one of the visitors. “Human contact is more fun than getting things off the internet.” One of the motives for organizing the café is to make the disease a topic of discussion. “The threshold is much lower if you have a café and you can talk together,” says initiator Herman Leusink. “The informal carers, the people who have a partner with Parkinson’s disease, can also consult with each other, and you can talk even more easily than with a doctor or a nurse.”

Another important goal is to raise awareness of the disease and its specific symptoms. “Parkinson’s is a brain disease in which certain cells in the brain die,” explains Leusink. “These cells ensure that a substance is made which sends the message that occurs in the brain to the rest of the body.” For Linder, it causes different symptoms: “I walk a little stiffly, I get tired more quickly, but the biggest problem is the cognitive problems. In the form of not being able to change gears and being able to perform difficult tasks with difficulty.”

First in Berkelland

There are already Parkinson’s cafes in several places in the Netherlands, but it was still missing in the Berkelland area. “We first consulted with the Parkinson’s nurse from the hospital in Winterswijk, who said there was a lot of interest in opening a cafe,” said the promoter. “We already have 36 entries, for the first time I think it’s very good.”

Tai Chi

The café was created with support from Berkelland municipality. The organization has enough inspiration to organize activities. “Once a pharmacist comes, then an occupational therapist. We can do Tai chi (Chinese movement exercises ed.) or yoga, maybe walking with Parkinson’s. We try all kinds of things to make activities.”
