The Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism aims at supporting young talented female journalists on their way to become an EU policy reporter in Brussels – and in a way step into the reporting shoes of Lénaïc Vaudin d’Imécourt.
We are an entirely donation-based fund, which means that we rely on generous contributions from external people or organisations to us.
This July, Colin Brown from Brussels bravely cycled the so-called L’étape du Tour, one of the mountain stages of the renowned Tour de France. By riding the 135 kilometres-long route from Albertville to Val Thorens in France in less than a day, Colin kindly helped raising funds for the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism. He collected an incredible sum of more than €3000 – and we are incredibly grateful to him for his support. A huge thank you, dear Colin!
We’re so proud!
The incredible @BrownColinM finished l’étape du tour – a 135-km-long challenging mountain route!
Well done, Colin 👏
And thank you so so much for your amazing support in order to keep Lénaïc’s legacy alive. 🙏🏻 We couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you! pic.twitter.com/1kjKrGjbaE
