- Love from Ibiza’s Christmas Cracker Dinner & Party.
- Factory Smokehouse & Grill, Saturday 15th December
Who doesn’t love a proper Christmas party? Stuffing yourself full of delicious grub, donning your sparkly frocks and festive jumpers, dancing with your friends, drinking mulled wine, eating mince pies and sweet treats, seeing the kids eyes light up with magic as they visit Father Christmas, and generally spreading festive cheer. Now, what if we told you that you could do all of this AND help those less fortunate at the same time?
Since its birth in 2015, Love From Ibiza, the island NGO set up by Marie Duchar Clark, of which I am proud to be secretary, has raised almost 20 000 euros for grass roots charity projects working directly with refugees and victims of war. This money has bought camper vans for Calais, helped fund the building of The Hope Centre for children in Iraq, paid for the shipment of over 100 boxes of clothes and shoes (kindly donated by you lovely islanders), to refugee camps in France, fed hungry families fleeing for their lives, paid for medical aid and even contributed to the building of a playground in a refugee camp in northern Iraq.
Our chosen charities need our help now more than ever and as the festive season approaches we at Love From Ibiza proudly present ´The Christmas Cracker´, our 4th fundraising event, in collaboration with The Factory Smokehouse and The Olive Tree. Taking place at The Factory Smokehouse on Saturday the 15th of December, it is shaping up to be full of festive fun. Here’s what we have in store:
SANTA’S GROTTO 5€, all money goes direct to charity.
Bring the kids to visit Father Christmas and his elf while you munch mince pies and tasty treats by Sharon Edwards of The Cupcake Collection and sip mulled wine or coffee. There will be plenty to keep the little ones happy while they wait to see the big fella, including a penalty shoot out and festive sparkly makeovers from Katie Bolt of Ooh La La hair and beauty and Sophie Painter of Paintpots and much more.
CHRISTMAS DINNER to a soundtrack festive beats. Indulge in a delicious 3 course Christmas turkey or vegan dinner with all the trimmings for €40 by the fabulous Olive Tree.
