Queen Sonja (patron of UWC RCN and former Vice President of the Norwegian Red Cross) and Crown Princess Mette-Marit were patrons for this year’s annual Norwegian fund raising event (TV Aksjonen) for the Norwegian Red Cross and their efforts to help victims of war and other conflicts from the following countries: Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Myanmar, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

The money also will be used in helping refugees who have come to Norway. 130,502 NOK was collected in Fjaler and RCN will contribute a further 13,065 NOK to the Fjaler fund following an auction and bake sale. Thank you to all students and staff who took on this challenge to raise money for this year’s TV Akjsonen.
