IAG supports Hamburg charity at 2024 General Assembly

IAG Global, the international organisation for lawyers, tax advisors and professional services firms, welcomed Klinik Clowns Hamburg as the Event Charity at the June 2024 Hamburg General Assembly, as chosen by Assembly hosts SNB Law.

Mark Huth and Einar Recknagel from SNB Law in Hamburg chose Klinik Clowns because of the difference they make to children and the elderly when in hospital, as well as to adults in nursing homes and at senior citizens’ centres.

Charity representative Nicole Knapp attended the Assembly Business Session and spoke about how the volunteer clowns make a difference to those they visit and how they willingly give up their time to make someone’s day a little brighter – after all ‘laughter is the best medicine’.

As Nicole finished answering questions, delegates embraced the wearing of red noses for a group photograph, with many delegates taking their own selfies of themselves wearing the colourful adornment.

Later on that day, delegates were delighted to see couple of clowns make an appearance at the Friday evening cruise along the River Elb.

In 2023, IAG Global pledged to support a local charity at each of the three annual IAG Assemblies held in locations around the world. Each charity is chosen by the IAG member hosting that event.
