Stëmm vun der Strooss, a local non-profit organisation which supports people experiencing homelessness and vulnerable members of society, has reported that the veteran team of FC Sporting Bertrange recently donated €1,000 to the non-profit organisation.

The FC Sporting Bertrange club organises an event every year and part of the profits is donated to a good cause. This year, the team decided to make the donation to the Stëmm vun der Strooss.

This decision was not taken at random, as the football club has relied on the services of the Schweesdrëps from Stëmm vun der Strooss for many years. This is a therapeutic workshop that offers jersey-cleaning services to sports clubs. The people working in this workshop wash the jerseys of 42 sports clubs, which corresponds to 321 teams. In 2023, over 93 tonnes of laundry were processed, compared to 70 tonnes in 2022. This initiative enables the workers to produce high-quality work, which requires discipline, organisation and the ability to work under pressure, as the sports calendar sets a fast pace.

The official donation handover took place on Monday 25 March 2024, just before the kick-off of the traditional Monday night game, in the presence of Bob Ritz, Communications Officer of the Stëmm vun der Strooss.
