Herrsching's handball players were in the Christmas spirit this year: around 250 actors, players and supervisors, took part in the campaign.
Highly motivated, about 250 members of the handball department of TSV Herrsching campaigned for facilities and institutions during Advent.
Co-organizer Michaela Lindig is enthusiastic: "It's absolutely great what the handball players and supervisors have put together."
– Initiated by the management of the handball department headed by boss Christina Reich and Michaela Lindig, the handball players worked hard to find ideas for the first “Handball in Advent” in Herrsching.
A kind of advent calendar in which Christmas balls were opened instead of doors (we reported).
Not every day, but 24 times.
"And everyone took part," says Lindig happily.
The campaigns for social purposes in the municipality of Herrsching brought in 1700 euros and lots of donations in kind.
Tina Reich's predecessors had also worked hard.
Uli Sigl created "limited edition shirts" and sold them for a good cause at halftime of the last women's and men's games this year, while Hans Wannenmacher took on his role as organizer of a Schafkopf tournament, for which he had several Herrschingen companies as donors won for the associated raffle.
Starting with the ball students up to the first teams of women and men, everyone had contributed.
"Everyone was hooked," says Michaela Lindig.
She and Christina Reich had helped the “Handball in Advent” get off the ground, and Lindig also pulled all the strings together.
The third men's team was able to hand over 355 euros to the Herrschinger Tafel after three of their players turned out to be the ultimate mulled wine sellers.
The second women's team was able to bring in sales proceeds of 100 euros with their home-baked cookies.
"Every goal a Herzerl" was the motto for men I and II, who threw a good number of goals in order to then convert them into euros and also donate them to the "Herrschinger Tafel" - a total of 386 euros were collected.
"Simply great," says Michaela Lindig.
In addition, the motto "Give joy" was applied.
Whether decorating the Christmas tree with the sponsors or packing the parcel.
The packages were then distributed to their patients by the Thurner nursing team.
Or when setting up a small crèche in the art hotel assisted living.
Even at the S-Bahn station, handball players, easily recognizable by their Santa Claus hats, were on the move, giving the passengers small giveaways and a happy “Gute Reise” to take with them.
In the third week of Advent, the “Gondelpostamt” in front of the “Seensucht” on Seestraße was opened by the D-Jugend girls, while the male C-Jugend played Santa Claus and distributed handball socks filled with delicacies.
Last but not least, Andi Türk, Peter Schuhmann and Michaela Lindig created a musical Advent afternoon in the Johanniterhaus on behalf of the handball department.
At the end of the last week of Advent, everyone had fun bowling for a good cause.
150,000 pins were counted - the equivalent of 150 euros, which was donated to the Fünfseenland children's group.
And on the last day of school, joy was given away again, namely homemade gingerbread for the Herrsching school bus drivers.
"We're already thinking about what we could do next time," admits Michaela Lindig in view of the great success.
But the bar is set high.
