EKO organized a “Christmas magic” Fairytale Day for over 200 needy families of the Nicosia district on December 18, 2016, at Fairytale Town in Nicosia.
In cooperation with community councils and schools at Nicosia district’s villages Hellenic Petroleum Cyprus invited the needy families to a “Fairytale Day with EKO”.
Buses, donated by EKO, transported the families to the venue to have a beautiful day and enjoy the festive spirit of the Fairytale Town. EKO’s team went there first thing in the morning to wrap up presents for both young and old but to also prepare a warm welcome for all. Also present at the event were Mr. Roberto Karahannas, General Manager Domestic & International Retail of the Group Mr. George Gregoras, Managing Director of Hellenic Petroleum Cyprus, and Mrs Olga Tsaloglou, chairman of the board of Hellenic Petroleum Cyprus.
The moment the guests arrived at the venue, EKO’s elves were photographed with the little ones, teasing them and making them laugh. At the same time, the stilt-walker of EKO entertained the children with balloon objects.
The company's goal was to offer the joy of Christmas and the magic of games to children who need it the most. Parents and children, from villages of Nicosia, enjoyed the many games at the magic place of Fairytale Town, the food but also the generous gifts, all donated by EKO.
