The Bocholt Volunteer Card
Civic engagement deserves recognition and appreciation!
That is why the North Rhine-Westphalian state government, together with many cities, districts and municipalities in the state, has introduced a state-wide volunteer card.
In Bocholt, too, deserving citizens who voluntarily help others can be awarded an honorary activity card.
The Ehrenamtskarte is an expression of appreciation for the great voluntary work of citizens and combines this appreciation with a practical benefit.
People who spend a particular amount of time working for the common good can use the card to take advantage of various offers from public, non-profit and private institutions at reduced rates.
In addition to many benefits from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Ehrenamtskarte is also linked to numerous offers from the city of Bocholt and, above all, from partners in the local economy, from associations and cultural institutions.
