The per­fect Christ­mas gift fair in aid of Be­yond the Moon

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

The Per­fect Christ­mas Gift Fair, which has be­come a much-loved sta­ple on the Corinthia Palace Ho­tel & Spa’s fes­tive cal­en­dar, is set to re­turn on Satur­day, 19 and Sun­day, 20 Novem­ber. The fair will once again raise funds for the Be­yond the Moon Foun­da­tion.

“It is our ab­so­lute plea­sure to be or­gan­is­ing this fair for the fourth time in a row,” says or­gan­iser, Marisa Xuereb. “Once again, in fact, we’re plan­ning two days full of fun for all the fam­ily, with loads of stalls sell­ing both ar­ti­sanal and com­mer­cial items, a great se­lec­tion of fes­tive food, en­ter­tain­ment through­out the day, work­shops for chil­dren and adults and many-a-cup of mulled wine.

“Of course, all pro­ceeds from

do­na­tions made through the raf­fle at the fair will go to Be­yond the Moon, an in­ter­na­tional char­ity that gives fam­i­lies of se­ri­ously-ill chil­dren the chance to get away from hos­pi­tals and the strug­gles in their daily life to en­joy their time as a fam­ily,” she adds.

The Corinthia Palace Ho­tel & Spa’s com­mit­ment to rais­ing money for the Be­yond the Moon Foun­da­tion goes back 10 years, with over €73,000 raised for the char­ity be­tween 2006 and 2016. This money has been used to send nu­mer­ous Mal­tese fam­i­lies to places like Dis­ney­land Paris in France and Cen­tre Parcs in the UK.

“While one can put a price on a hol­i­day, the joy th­ese trips give to the fam­i­lies of chil­dren who

have chronic or life-threat­en­ing dis­eases is price­less,” Ms Xuereb con­tin­ues. “As a ho­tel, we be­lieve it’s im­por­tant for us to do our share and give back to peo­ple in need, and we hope that peo­ple will join us at this year’s fair to help us raise even more money for this won­der­ful char­ity.”

This year, the Per­fect Christ­mas Gift Fair will re­turn to the Corinthia Palace Ho­tel & Spa in At­tard, fol­low­ing a one-year break dur­ing which it was held at San An­ton Palace. The for­mula, mean­while, will re­main the same with lots of fes­tive cheer, danc­ing, art, food and mu­sic, among oth­ers.
