There’s no place on earth quite like the English Market at Christmas.
And now you can help support a very important cause as you stroll from stall to stall, stocking up on festive essentials.
The English Market Traders and Management have selected suicide prevention charity Pieta House as their nominated Christmas charity this year.
“In the past, we have supported a children’s charities at Christmas, which is the obvious charity during the festive season.” says Órla Lannin, Manager of The English Market.
“This year however, we’ve decided to support Pieta House, because while Christmas is a magical and exciting season for many, we realise that for many others it can be a lonely and anxious time, especially for those who have lost loved ones. We want those people who are suffering to know we recognise this and we support them.”
This Christmas the English Market also welcomes a new addition to the festive season. The Market Hub (formerly known as Hilser’s), located on the Grand Parade has been transformed by Hanleys of Cork, who generously decorated the windows in a Christmas theme.
Cork Craft and Design have set up an amazing pop up shop in the Hub, selling beautiful locally sourced handmade gifts from jewellery to scarves to homewares.
Each English Market Trader is supporting Pieta House and all have collection boxes on their stalls where the public can donate. Donations can also be made to the beautiful crib situated in the Market Hub, which will be open every day from 11am – 7pm until Christmas Eve.
