JC Dragon’s Heart Europe Meeting Centre, Rotterdam 2019

Here is an overview of a number of events from the Meeting Centre for 2019.

The Huis Madelief meeting centre had a good year. In addition to the usual weekly activities, there were also various other fun activities.

Project Huis Daisy, for example, had a games morning, a day of pampering , various film mornings and of course making Christmas pieces in December. 

The Huis Madelief project celebrated its 5 year Anniversary in September and this became a festive afternoon to which everyone was invited.

Furthermore, we celebrated the birthdays of some of our volunteers with a very festive afternoon because our regular volunteers, Jacqueline, turned 50 at the end of July. One of our volunteers had persuaded a few members of the Harley Davidson club to come along on the occasion of her 50th birthday and allow her to take a ride on the motorcycle (with someone at the front of course!).

The monthly bingo evenings were also well attended throughout the year; this also applies to the two monthly paranormal evenings.  In addition, we had the fashion shows for the ladies of project Madelief in the spring and autumn.

We continuously have a ‘second-hand’ market in the centre and a few times a year an indoor market in Rijswijk.

Because the Centre organises so much for the elderly in the area, we have been nominated for the Hoogvlieter of the Year 2019, together with two more people who contribute to the welfare work in Hoogvliet.

The result will be announced on January 8 during a festive evening. The recordings and the interviews have already taken place. It will be exciting … it would be very nice to be the winner.

Finally, on behalf of the team at the Huis Madelief meeting centre, we wish everyone a Healthy and Happy New Year.

Coming in 2020!

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:

International Dragon’s Heart Europe / Joining Cultures England Tour July 2020



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:–

We hope you’ll be able to join us!

!! Please note, Jackie Chan will not be present at any time during the Tour !!


Christmas Market, House Madelief

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.

Christmas Bingo, House Madelief

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.


Clothing Fair, House Madelief

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.


Bus tour organised by Huis Madelief – great success!

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.
