The 72-year-old mr. Van Gemeren from Rotterdam, retired mechanic of tug boats, cycles across Rotterdam to work at the Rotterdam foundation Sterk door Werk (Stronger by Work). This foundation has put up workshops for elderly that still want to work in the Collective building in Rotterdam South, with a.o. rooms for metal working, a sawmill and a furniture-making workshop. Mayor G.E. van Walsum of Rotterdam visits the workshops with his wife for the official opening.
