In recent times, there also have been satisfied users who have received a Van Raam adapted bicycle. Read more about this in the article.

Fun2Go side-by-side tandem for residential facility De Zuidwester

The residents of housing facility De Zuidwester in Goes (the Netherlands) received a second Fun2Go side-by-side tandem. This second bike was much needed because there was from the residents a lot of requests for rides with the first duo bike. Employee Sandra Geertse indicated that the residents could not do much more because of the corona virus, but that it is very nice to be able to cycle for a while.

The side-by-side tandem was donated by the foundation ‘Vrienden van den Berg’ (translated: ‘Friends from the Berg’). This organization collects money in various ways for the residential facility. Read the news article here (in Dutch).

Side-by-side tandem for the little Jörn

Six year old Jörn from Bobstadt (Germany), got a Fun2Go side-by-side tandem from the ‘Athletes for Charity’ foundation. They help sick and disadvantaged children. At the age of two, Jörn developed an inflammation in the brain. He stayed in the hospital for several months after which he underwent rehabilitation. Because of the damage to the brain, Jörn has a mental disability and he had to relearn a lot, such as walking and sitting. Jörn loves activities a lot, he then really flourishes, says Marco Steffan, founder of the foundation.

With the help of many associations, companies, supporters, contributors, charities and a donation from Niklas Guste, the director of the bicycle shop E-Motion in Worms, the foundation was able to buy the bicycle for Jörn. Jörn’s mother said that with the arrival of the side-by-side tandem a dream came true.
