Royal Award

   On Friday, April 24, Hans Kerkhoff, member of the Platform for Integration, received a call from the Mayor of Heemstede, Astrid Nienhuis to hear that he has been appointed Knight of the Order of Oranje Nassau. He really is a well-deserved candidate for it, as he has been a volunteer in many fields for over 50 years, particularly for the Church, nature and environment, and refugees.

For example, he is a nature guide at the IVN Zuid-Kennemerland department, a volunteer at Thijsse’s Hof in Bloemendaal, a volunteer from the Taalcoaches foundation and a collector for various charities.
We congratulate him warmly.
