The Convent Christmas Fair 2015

The Convent will once again host it's Christmas Fair. This annual event held in the historical setting of the Convent raises money for locally registered charities.

The selected charities this year are:- The Saffron Rose 4 Rett Charitable Trust, Down's Syndrome Support Group Gibraltar, Autism Support Gibraltar and Pathway Through Pain.

The doors open at 12 noon, and once inside you will find over 40 seasonal stalls, many run by local charities as their own fundraising effort, offering an array of crafts, gifts, Christmas cards and decorations.  In the Cloister you will find a cafe offering refreshments throughout the afternoon. Festive music will be playing culminating in the Loreto Convent Choir singing Christmas carols at 6 pm. Mulled wine and mince pies will be provided by the Red Cross Committee for you to enjoy whilst you listen to the singing.  Santa will also be in his Grotto from 2pm offering gifts for the children.

The fair will host two great raffles. The first, a Honda MSX 125cc motorcycle kindly donated once again by Bassadone Motors; Tickets cost £2 each and will be available at the Fair and also at The Piazza on Thursday 12th November and at Morrison's on Saturday 21st November. The second, on the day will offer many prizes donated by local businesses.  Both raffles will be drawn at 6.30 pm on the day.

There is something for everyone, so come along and join us and get into the Christmas Spirit whilst supporting local charities.
