Brussels Public Transport – STIB/MIVB – carried banners recently advertising the Help Line throughout the metro network. Placed above the doors and windows of the carriages, the campaign ran for twenty eight days, from May 20, and highlighting the crisis, support and information service offered by the 24/7 telephone Help Line. It’s the first time that CHS has advertised in this way and thanks are due to Euroclear whose generous support has made such an initiative possible. The Help Line is looking for volunteers to join the team. Training course begins in October. For more information call the office on 02/647.67.80.

One spin-off from the May publicity campaign has been a radio interview carried by RTBF on August 8, detailing the Help Line service and featuring the CHS administrator and a volunteer who works regularly on the Line. The journalist concerned, Jérôme Durand, had seen one of the posters in the metro and, curious to find out more, contacted the office.

"We were delighted with the month-long metro campaign: the fact that it led to the broadcast indicated its successful reach, said Rex Parker, Chairman of CHS Board.
