KPN Mooiste Contact Days

Special experiences, unforgettable memories

Promoting social contact and combating loneliness amongst vulnerable groups are at the heart of the KPN Mooiste Contact Days. Amongst other things, elderly people are invited for a special day in, for example, the Rijksmuseum or the Thialf Stadium.

During the KPN Mooiste Contact Days, it’s all about social contact for people for whom this isn’t always obvious. These are days to look forward to every year. For the KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds, for the KPN volunteers, and, of course, for the hundreds of vulnerable elderly and sick young people who get to enjoy a great day together.

In contact in the ‘Rijks’

In 2016, we organized the KPN Mooiste Contact Days in the Rijksmuseum once again. Together with, amongst others, the Hartstichting (Heart Foundation), ’s Heeren Loo and the Salvation Army, we welcomed guests for a visit to the museum.

Spread over 5 days, 500 guests took a bus to the ‘Rijks’ in Amsterdam. The KPN volunteers received them like real VIPs and accompanied them during the tours. With time for a good conversation and attention for the Dutch masters. Of course, the visit wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to ‘The Night Watch’.

From Thialf to the theater

As well as visits to the Rijksmuseum, the KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds also arranges other days. For example, in previous years there was a visit to the KPN All-round national championship skating in the Thialf Stadium in Heerenveen and the theater production ‘Tour de Toon’, with songs by Toon Hermans.
