Every trading day the gong is sounded in Amsterdam to mark the opening (9.00 am) and closing (17.30 pm) of the trading session.
Marion Beishuizen of the Heart Foundation sounds the gong at Amsterdam exchange to kick off the 2012 collection week.
Who do you have in mind when you give to the Heart Foundation? That is the theme of this year’s collection week, which lasts until Saturday 21 April. The Heart Foundation helps to combat heart and pulmonary disease; its goal is to decrease the number of patients and the number of people who die of heart disease. 80 cents out of every euro collected is used for scientific research, education and prevention, and for patient care.
