On the 29th December, a solidarity event for Christmas and New Year will be organised at the Ċentru Leap Għax-Xlokk, Triq San Dwardu in Birgu.
The event is being organised for people in our region who do not have the means to have a Christmas dinner or who do not have company to share it with. Our community experiences both material poverty and social deprivation. Therefore, we chose this year to celebrate with everyone and in solidarity with people who have fallen out of the safety net.
Leap’s mission is to work tirelessly towards eradicating poverty and social exclusion. An active action plan is being implemented to assist the most vulnerable. Interventions focus on supporting clients to move towards a better quality of life, mainly through employment promotion and other services available through our regional stakeholders.
We are kindly appealing to your generosity to support this event with food stuffs, desert items, beverages, or raffle prizes. This initiative can only be a success through the community kind support.
We are also planning a Christmas Market, giving regional NGO’s the possibility to raise funds by selling handmade goods. The Christmas market will also have an environmental twist by encouraging the use of recycled materials. The centre shall also be hosting other family/community oriented activities.
The event will commence at 9.30am and we’ll be inviting 40 people for lunch.
9.30am – 11am: Christmas Market and Family Activities
11am: Mass Celebration
2.30pm – 4.30pm: Christmas Market and Family Activities
6pm: Disco for youngsters
