For this 26th edition, the Ovalies association has decided to support three associations by donating all the profits collected during the 2 days of the tournament on May 8 & 9 in Beauvais. What are these beneficiary associations? What are their projects thanks to the donations from the Ovalies?
After supporting Action Against Hunger the first five editions, the charity tournament has decided to support new associations with very distinct projects.
This year, two of the associations were chosen by the Ovalies for their solidarity side.
L’Arche aims to include people with disabilities. Their goal is to make known the gifts of people with disabilities and allow them to find their rightful place in society by making their full contribution. Thanks to the benefits of the Ovalies, their project consists of the construction of studios and homes for the residents.
Keep smiling and morale in the face of illness? It is the fight of the association Les Clowns de l’Espoir which brings pleasant and light moments to the hospitalized children, to their families but also to the nursing staff. The Ovalies have chosen to support their project which allows the visit of more than 16,000 children per year.
This year, the members of the Ovalies office have chosen to accentuate their sustainable development approach. By supporting Zéro Waste France, the third association of this 26th edition, the objective is twofold: to implement new actions to reduce food waste and promote zero waste. In addition to raising awareness among visitors, there is a real desire to improve the quality of the event.
All the associations will be present during the Ovalies on May 8 and 9, 2020 at the Marcel Communeau Stadium in Beauvais (60). In September 2020, the donations collected during the event will be given to the 3 associations. Feedback on the actions carried out thanks to donations will be available on our website: https://ovalies-unilasalle.com/.
