"This is quite fantastic, to have a such an exciting building project going on right outside our front entrance. It is a pleasure to be able to support this project," says hotel manager, Øyvind Hagen. He hasn't calculated the exact value of the donation, but figures it could be worth some hundred thousand kroner.
"When we requested a meeting with the hotel manager, we did not dream of being met with such good will and this generous donation," says secretary to the Foundation, Arne Solhaug. "People often say 'There is no such thing as a free lunch', but here we will be enjoying free lunches throughout the building process. This is just fantastic!"
