A donation of €250 is to be made to The Foundation KiKa, a Dutch charity organisation dedicated to research into child cancer treatment. The donation is following a competition put on by Maritime Propeller Repairs BV (MPR) at the Europort 2015 exhibition in Rotterdam.
MPR had organised a contest where the participants had to estimate the weight of a propeller featured at their stand. The winner was to receive a voucher for a €250 discount on any future propeller repairs.
As the winner, Mr P F van Niesthoven, does not own vessels, he has instead requested that the money be donated to The Foundation KiKa for child cancer research. MPR is happy to support his wish, and will transfer the amount to KiKa.
The Foundation KiKa is a Dutch charity foundation that fundraises specifically for research into childhood cancers. The charity aims to increase the cure rate to 95% by 2025.
