After the success of the International JC Fans Spanish ‘Joining Cultures’ Tour in July 2017 (organised by Antonio Ramírez), we have decided to continue with the ‘Joining Cultures’ theme, and are organising our own Joining Cultures Tour.
The ‘Jackie Chan International Dragon’s Heart Europe/Joining Cultures (England) Fundraising Tour’ will continue with the same philosophy – Jackie Chan fans from different countries and cultures joining together and visiting the locations where the movies ‘The Foreigner’ and ‘Shanghai Knights were filmed. We will also be visiting other cultural places in and around London, England. There are some fun events planned for the evenings, including an auction of exciting memorabilia!
The date of the Tour will be 2nd – 8th August 2020 .
If you would like to join the Tour, just send an email with your name and country to:
We have an update regarding the Tour.
It will take place from 2nd August – 8th August 2020
If you are interested in joining us, please send an email with your name and country to –
The locations visited will be from Jackie’s films – The Foreigner and Shanghai Knights, plus of course much sightseeing around London.
We look forward to seeing you next year!
Recognise these locations?
They are all locations in England which have featured in Jackie Chan films. If you would like to come and see them (and more!) for yourself, join us on the first ever International Jackie Chan’s Dragon’s Heart Europe / Joining Cultures Fundraising Tour.
* Joining Cultures was a title made up by Antonio Ramírez for his International Spanish Tour in 2017. He felt it reflected Jackie’s idea of bringing people together from all over the world.
The Tour will be held in and around London in July 2020, and will last 6 days. We are also planning a number of Jackie-themed events and an auction of Jackie memorabilia!
Please be aware that you will need to arrange your own travel to London.
A small percentage of the overall cost will be donated to Jackie Chan’s Dragon’s Heart Europe which will go towards supporting our projects.
At this stage, we are looking to find out how many people would be interested. If you would like to register your interest, please send an email with your name and country to:–
firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 February 2019
We hope you’ll be able to join us!
!! Please note, Jackie Chan will not be present at any time during the Tour !!
There was a great start to the 2019 New Year at the community centre. The morning session on 2 January was the first to start with a small reception which was just a cosy get together and a toast to 2019.
This was repeated on 8 January at the House Madelief project. The groups of Tuesday and Thursday each made a toast to 2019 whilst enjoying a snack and drink, which was provided by a few volunteers.
Kitty gave a brief speech and wished everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
Our community centre, House Madelief, had a great Christmas atmosphere throughout the month with various Christmas activities.
There was a Christmas breakfast with the one of the clubs who attend the Centre. There was also a high tea at House Madelief, a lovely afternoon for the people who attend the House Madelief project. Kitty also organized a Christmas drink for the volunteers, where each volunteer was given a small gift.
We can definitely look back on a successful 2018.
We wish everyone a nice, warm Christmas and a lot of health and happiness for 2019.
Christmas wish –
See that other person,
Look at that other person,
Be good for each other,
Not only at Christmas, but throughout the year.
On Saturday, 1 December 2018, a Christmas market will be held in House Madelief at the Bovensim 148 in Hoogvliet, Rotterdam.
Although this market will be Christmas-themed, there will also be other items for sale. Come and take a look and of course, there is also tea, coffee or any other snack you may like.
See you at the Christmas market.
On Friday, November 23 2018, there was Christmas Bingo in our Meeting Centre. It was a very successful evening.
The winning prizes were entirely Christmas-themed and extra snacks were served during the break. A good Bingo-closure for the year 2018, where our team of volunteers did their best.
All the proceeds go to the charity.
On Saturday 3 November 2018, there was a secondhand clothing fair in Huis Madelief. The day was pleasant and went well.
Thank you to all the volunteers who made it possible – all proceeds from the sale have been donated to Dragon’s Heart Europe.
The bus tour organised by Huis Madelief on Saturday 6 October 2018 was indeed a great success.
At 8.00 am everyone boarded the bus and left for Ommen. The weather was beautiful and the mood was good. On arrival, there was coffee and cake for all, and then we had a lovely boat trip. Both the bus trip and the boat tour led us through beautiful nature reserves. We also drove through the beautiful estate Vilsteren. After the boat trip, we visited a beautiful church where many of our group spent a peaceful moment. We ended our trip in Restaurant de Ruif, where we ate a delicious meal.
About 7.00 pm, we were back in Hoogvliet where we were met by a few volunteers who spoilt us with soup and sandwiches as a conclusion to this day. The bus trip is definitely worth repeating.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this day an unforgettable day.
On Tuesday 6 November 2018, House Madelief organised a fashion show together with Skyline Mode. There was a very nice collection and many items were brought. The Skyline ladies helped the elderly people to try on the clothes which was much appreciated. Meanwhile, there was time for a cup of coffee or tea, amidst much discussion about the clothes. The participants went home very happy with their newly purchased clothes.
