Cash prize enriches life

Seven years ago, Bert suffered a cardiac arrest after swimming. The former triathlete eventually spent 10 days in a coma and suffered brain damage. Because of this, he was unable to play sports as before.

'It is a beautiful, handmade bicycle'

At the Postcode Loterij (a Dutch national lottery), Bert recently won €10,000. Among other things, he used this money to buy a recumbent trike. 'I am very happy with it, because such a bike gets you outside and you get to see something. It is a beautiful, handmade bicycle and despite my stability problem I can cycle beautifully on it', says Bert in an article from the Postcode Loterij.
