Arkhangelsk tennis team


Tennis team from Arkhangelsk had their best experience in Bodø during Summer Barents Games 2017. The Russian team consisted of participants from Saint Petersburg and Arkhangelsk. They won 25 games in comparison to 13 wins by Norway and Sweden teams together.

"The Childhood by the Dvina" donated 5000 NOK to the Arkhangelsk tennis team, so it covered some transportation fee.

Second hand


Arkhangelsk tennis team travelled by bus from Kandalaksha to Bodø. On their way back home, we decided to fill the bus with used toys and clothes. So we asked in local facebook group "Norsk-russisk forening i Bodø", if they want to help.

Russian families in Bodø and Fauske donated 11 large bags with clothes, shoes and

toys! All of it was delivered by the bus on their way home to Monchegorsk in the county of Murmansk.

Charity organisation in Monchegorsk


Charity organisation "Soyus (Union)" helps families with low income. They took all toys and clothes, sorted it out and distributed to the families.
