Tina Daniel – April guest speaker @ Cafe Sundet
Apr 25 @ 11:45 – 12:30

Tina Daniel is our April guest speaker.

Tina will be telling a gripping tale about her ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest mountain, and the world’s highest freestanding mountain. The purpose of the climb was to collect funds for charity together with a team of 28 others.

Tina is a young woman who trained and prepared for the walk for many months. Her trip was delayed four months due to an eye problem last summer, but finally in January she was able to travel, leaving her family in Denmark.
Tina will talk about the trip, the hardships and disappointments all the way through to the thrill and excitement of facing such a challenge. As she came down she told her mother, Jean Gram-Andersen, “never again”. Let’s hear what Tina now feels after some months. There was tragedy on the mountain that we sincerely hope Tina has been able to overcome. She should be proud of her efforts and we look forward very much to her talk.

May 9 @ 11:00 – 11:00

Cost: DKK 60.-
(The charge at the door is donated in full to our Philanthropic team.)

Reading Group @ The home of Vera Hildebrandt.
May 9 @ 12:30

We will be reading “Please Look After Mom “ by the Man Booker Prize Asia winner, Kyung-sook Shin, translated by Che Young Kim.

When sixty-nine-year-old So-Nyo is separated from her
husband among the crowds of the Seoul subway station, her
family begins a desperate search to find her. Yet as long-held secrets and private sor- rows begin to reveal themselves, they are forced to wonder: how well did they actually know the woman they called Mom? The novel explores the loss, self-recrimination, and in some cases, self-discovery caused by the mother’s disappearance. The novel also considers themes related to the self-sacrifice of mothers in general (and in Korean in particular), the relationship between memories of the past and realities of the present, and the chameleonic aspects of identity.

Afternoon Tea in White * Thé de l’après-midi en blanc @ Birgitte Hinnerskov's home
May 23 @ 14:00 – 16:00

THE PHILANTHROPIC COMMITTEE has arranged a special Afternoon Tea in White.

This event is inspired to some extent by an old Danish tradition where folk would gather in woods, gardens and parks on the first Saturday of June, when the white hawthorn (Hvidtjørn) is blossoming, for a ‘Hvid picnic’ and men, women and children would take part in their best white clothes.

There is also a newer tradition, the ‘Dîner en Blanc’ which started in Paris in 1988.It has become a worldwide Spring event. People gather in a public space and set up a temporary chic dining area in an iconic city location. Diners bring their own food, tables, chairs and tablecloths, and are all dressed in white.

We will gather in Birgitte’s beautiful home, dressed in white and enjoy afternoon tea with delicious cakes, also white of course. The best outfit – by popular vote – will be rewarded with a prize.

Registration deadline: 20th May Cancellation deadline: 22nd May
