Annual Daxi Christmas Collection - Helping 'at risk' families within the Free Famagusta and Larnaca Region in association with K.E.P.A. Charity in Paralimni and The S.B.A. Police Food Project in Larnaca
The response we received was fantastic & on the 16th & 17th of December local volunteers collected & sorted all donations which were shared between K.E.P.A. Charity in Paralimni & The S.B.A. Food Project in Larnaca.
Special thanks to all the businesses that provided collection points, all of the volunteers on the day, all of the companies that made individual contributions including: Nick's Bottle Shop, Tempo Dance & Theatre School, The Auction Room Deryneia & The Alzheimer's Support Centre Paralimni.
The biggest thank you must go to all the Daxi readers out there who took donations to collections points, added items to their weekly shop & who took the time to purchase & wrap gifts for the children.
Also a special mention to a lady called Wendy who met our Editor Natalie in Lidl whilst Natalie was purchasing food for the collection with financial donations given. When Natalie got to the till with a trolley full of food & toiletries she had miscalculated the amount she had spent & was €15 short to pay for the goods in the trolley. Wendy approached Natalie saying she knew who Natalie was & what she was doing & not only donated the additional €15 but helped Natalie pack the goods & load them in the car with the parting words “Pay it forward.. that’s what I say”. What a fantastic example of human kindness & Christmas spirit, thank you Wendy!
Daxi readers you should be very proud of yourselves! For the people you have helped with this collection it was a Christmas they will never forget! Thanks to you all!
Daxi organises and assists many charitable and community projects. Christmas 2014 was the third year that Daxi organised a collection for the needy in our communities. The following appeal was made in Daxi Magazine in the Autumn:
Its the time of year that makes us think about those around us who are less fortunate & really need our help especially as the Winter weather sets in. So please help us with our 3rd annual Christmas Collection.
With the help of various charities, churches & Municipalities in Eastern Cyprus we have been able to identify families in our community who will find Christmas & the Winter in general a very challenging time. We need your help to come together as a community & gather as many resources as possible to help these families understand the true meaning of Christmas.
We are appealing to all Daxi Readers for the following items:
Tinned or packaged 'long life' foods. Blankets, Quilts, Pillows & Heaters. Toothbrushes, Sanitary Towels, Nappy's & general toiletries.
Optional Extra - Toys - Wrapped in Christmas Paper with Boy/Girl & general age the present is likely to suit. Any age from 1 - 15yrs old.
