Every year during our winter period we have worked on Helping Mallorca’s Homeless where we collect donations from members of the yachting community, various businesses, organisations and other inhabitants of the island. Our campaign is about helping the various homeless shelters on the island to keep thriving and making a difference to those that are less fortunate at Christmas time. Some of the organisations we donate to are SOS Mamas, Es Refugi Shelter and Associació Tardor.
Over the past few months we have received countless amounts of donations of clothing and shoes, bed linen, hats and scarves, children’s clothing and toys, food items, toiletries, homewares and many other useful items that make a huge difference to the shelters around the island.
We also create handmade gift bags to distribute to the shelters with handwritten Christmas wishes that we hope will provide some warmth to those in need. We have 200 bags, provided by Pinmar Supply, of both male and female items such as toiletries and accessories, tea and hot chocolate and biscuits and sweets.
This year, we have also been working with a wonderful non-profit organisation called Yachting Gives Back, who have a container in STP.
We also hosted our Xmas Sing Along event at The Guinness house this year, it was an amazing turn out! We had mulled wine, mince pies and lots of singing and Christmas cheer! We managed to raise an amazing €4125! We had very generous donations from Marine Results and The Rib Club.
