In 2009 Melfarparken, a council housing area only a few miles away from our headquarter, started a project called ’My Melfarparken’. The purpose was and still is to enhance the welfare and create a safe environment for the children’s upbringing in an area that is very different from the daily life at Dan-Bunkering.
We decided to enter a cooperation to bring the two seemingly diverse worlds closer to each other and enhance understanding through dialogue. We have a genuine wish to involve ourselves locally to the benefit of the youngsters. Instead of giving them a donation and leave, we believe that it has a larger effect to exchange human resources and establish personal network.
During the planning of a recent football tournament we learned that on top of the wish list was rubber coating for a multipurpose sporting field. Dan-Bunkering decided to sponsor the field, and the first big highlight of our cooperation was a football tournament on this brand new turf. The tournament found big support and experienced high attendance from the residents of Melfarparken and employees of Dan-Bunkering. In that way, a rubber coating CAN bring diverse worlds closer to each other.
