BRUSSELS: On 22 September, during the annual car free day, Thon Hotel Brussels is organising a breakfast for charity on Rue de la Lot in one of the city’s busiest streets.
From 10.30am to noon, a long table will be set up to cater for more than 800 people. The continental breakfast will be free for all with donations being accepted for three partner associations, GoodPlanet Belgium, the Red Cross and Birds Bay.
The car-free day in Brussels is organised on an annual basis and gives residents of the Belgian capital city the chance to enjoy their city free of cars, buses and traffic jams.
This day is therefore conducive to the organization of exceptional events in places usually not accessible on foot or by bike. This is why Thon Hotels Brussels took the opportunity to organize a breakfast on one of the most crowded avenues in the capital.
The table will be installed between 35 and 77 Rue de La Lot and bike parking will be available. Coffee, croissants, orange juice and pastries will be served with the idea being that of bringing people together.
Participants are invited to make a donation to one of the associations though this is not obligatory. Each euro raised in return for the breakfast will be used to plant a tree in a school with the help of GoodPlanet Belgium, serve hot meals to the poor through Red Cross or treat sick animals through Birds Bay.
A long table can accommodate more than 800 people will be installed rue de la Loi, 35 -77 for 1 hour and a half on Sunday morning 22 September. Bike parking will be available at the various entrances to allow everyone to come and park easily. And especially a continental breakfast will be waiting for you to start this beautiful day perfectly. Coffee, croissant, orange juice and pastries will be served for young and old, the idea being to get everyone together.
The hotel also helps the three associations on a daily basis. Guests staying 2 nights or more who do not wish to have their rooms cleaned daily can inform the hotel staff and they receive a token of EUR 5 which they can use other in the bar or restaurant or in the form of a donation to one of the three associations.
