The icing on the cake? Try icing on the walls with the gingerbread house sponsored by Cork International Airport Hotel!

10 December 2008

Bricks and mortar replaced by biscuit, icing and chocolate? A gingerbread house might sound like the stuff of fairytales but this Christmas, Cork International Airport Hotel and Cork Airport will host this very special house for local children to decorate with all their favourite sweets and goodies!

On December 16th and 17th the gingerbread house will sit in the main terminal of Cork Airport, where children are invited to personalise their own panel of the house with sweeties between 3pm to 5pm. The house might end up looking like something out of a fairytale, but there will only be good spirits in Cork Airport this Christmas, no wicked ones!

The event is sponsored by Cork International Airport Hotel and on both days there will be a collection in aid of ARC Cancer Support House Cork. ARC Cancer Support House is a voluntary organisation established to provide a holistic centre in which people with cancer and their families can find emotional support and practical help.

Parents will also be catered for with yummy festive hot chocolate and mince pies, while the kids live out their own personal fairytale – all for a good cause, of course!
This is the third year that Cork International Airport Hotel has sponsored the event and General Manger Patrick Hanley is delighted to be involved again. “I hope the gingerbread house will be as big a success as last year, again raising money for such a worthwhile cause. We’re all looking forward to the day and also expect it will be a lot of fun for everyone involved, particularly our local participating families!”

“Cork Airport is delighted to host the annual Gingerbread House decoration in association with Cork International Airport Hotel with proceeds going to the ARC Cancer Support House ”, said Cork Airport’s Marketing Manager, Kevin Cullinane. “The children of Cork can help us raise money for a good cause and the chance to have a fun filled afternoon by actively participating in this community fundraiser”, he added.
