Gulf Weekly Shoppers making a difference at mall

City Centre Bahrain is once again collaborating with the Bahrain Islamic Association to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate by encouraging people to donate during Ramadan.

Make A Difference, now in its 13th year, is mall owner Majid Al Futtaim’s annual initiative aimed at spreading the message of kindness and empathy.

Duaij Al Rumaihi, senior mall manager, City Centre Bahrain, said: “We hope that this year even more residents and tourists open their hearts and embrace the spirit of giving and generously donate to families in need this Ramadan.”

A donation station will be located next to Gate 4 on the ground floor and shoppers are invited to donate ‘gently used’ clothes, books, toys and non-perishable food items. All donated and collected goods will be distributed through the charity’s distribution channels.

• Plans are also in place for City Centre Bahrain’s Gergaoun annual celebrations, tomorrow. In conjunction with the Ministry of Social Development, the mall will host the popular ceremony where children dress up in traditional clothes and go around receiving sweets while singing songs. The colourful event will feature traditional games, songs, mascots and young guests will receive Gergaoun ‘goodie bags’ offered by City Centre Bahrain and its retailers.
