Manama, January 9, 2014: The Palm Association representatives Tina Hunt, Sue Gale and Elaine Caley visited Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre on Thursday to receive a cheque in excess of BD 1,440, raised during Kempinski’s Winter Wonderland Cookie Decorating for charity.
Throughout December, every weekend, Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre hosted young children at its Winter Wonderland Chalet in Bahrain City Centre for gingerbread cookie decorating. For BD 2, children decorated home-made gingerbread cookies with colored icing, with all proceeds going to one of the best known charities on the island, The Palm Association.
“We are absolutely delighted that our charitable activities during the festive season were again successful, helping us to raise funds for people fallen on hard times. We are proud to be supporting The Palm Association which does a marvellous job helping disadvantaged Bahraini families through their various projects, really making a difference in their lives” says Puneet Singh, General Manager of Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre.
In addition to the cookie decorating, children and adults alike delightfully participated in creating the Longest Cookie Trail ever in Bahrain — another charity event organized on 9th December by Kempinski along with Bahrain City Centre. Every participant bought a cookie for BD1, wrote their name on it and hung it on to the trail surrounding the display. The special cookies off the trail were distributed to Salmaniya Hospital’s children’s ward to thrill the children.
