It is the time of the year
Christmas is a time full of traditions. This is also the case with Universal Transport. On the 22nd of November , the heavy-duty specialists delivered Berlin’s most famous Christmas tree to the Brandenburg Gate once again. Universal Transport has been the Christmas tree representative for the capital for years. This time it was an almost 20-meter-high and approximately 2.7-ton red spruce from private ownership in Thuringia, which now creates a festive atmosphere in front of the Berlin landmark during the Advent season.
Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy the festive mood at the turn of the year without a care in the world. And that is why it is also one of Universal Transport’s important Christmas traditions to bring a little joy and hope to the less fortunate. This year the company is supporting several campaigns and initiatives yet again.
This also includes the “fruit alarm” campaign. The volunteers visit children’s cancer places all over Germany with their mobile children’s cocktail bar and offer the young patients a bit of variety and fun there. And if face to face visits is not possible due to COVID, a mobile cocktail case is simply sent to the ward. The instructions for mixing their cocktails are then available on YouTube so there is no stopping them.
The “Aktion Lichtblicke,” which was launched in North Rhine-Westphalia in 1998, is about children, young people and their families who are in material, financial or emotional need. Universal Transport has supported this charity for years and this year once again auctioned the accompaniment of a heavy load transport as part of the Lichtblicke auctions. This price brought in an unbelievable 765 euros this year. Universal Transport rounds the sum up generously and therefore a total of 1,500 euros will go to the “Aktion Lichtblicke” charity.
