At Christmas time we often are flooded with gifts, and generously dole out the presents in return. But thinking much bigger this Christmas Meaghers Pharmacy is hoping to give someone the gift of a home, and this is how you can play your part.
The Irish pharmacy chain is inviting you to attend an exclusive skincare and makeup Christmas Market, in association with TV3’s Xposé, on December 4th, in aid of homeless charity Peter McVerry Trust.
Funds raised through ticket sales, auction and raffles at the market will contribute towards their Christmas charity campaign #WrapUpHomelessness, which has an ambitious target of €50,000.
The event will be see a host of favourite household names descend on Temple Bar’s Meeting House Square, including Clarins, Flormar, Blank Canvas, Spotlight Teeth Whitening, BPerfect, Sculpted By Aimee, Cleanse Off Mitt, REN Skincare, Stylpro and many more.
At the market you’ll be free to browse through the market stalls while indulging in some hot Christmas drinks provided by Butler’s Chocolates and delicious mince pies from Aldi.
Just to enhance the Christmas mood, all the while a Christmas movie will be playing on a big screen, and the sound of live music from popular Irish acts will fill the square with an extra dose of festive cheer.
If you aren’t yet convinced by the stellar selection of stalls and amazing cause, there will also be a goody bag for the first 100 attendees as well as fun prizes and giveaways on the night.
