SKAL International Bombay (144) sends message of hope with its Christmas celebration
Every year is fraught with numerous hurdles and challenges thrown in your path and 2021 was no less with it’s fair share of trials and tribulations. However, SKAL International Bombay (144) would like to take comfort and solace in the fact that it has considerably tempered down and is ending on a high note!
The Christmas event by SKAL International Bombay (144) in Mumbai which was organised in association with Visit Britain provided a perfect platform for networking, a destination workshop thrown in for good measure (Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Destination Workshop) and spreading some much needed holiday cheer!
“With over 140 partners from the Mumbai travel trade, the response was encouraging and it was heart warming to witness the spirit of camaraderie and friendship among the regular members and many others, who had just come aboard as new members,” according to the release.
Besides the presentation by Visit Britain, the event also celebrated the first of it’s kind online travel auction by SKAL International Bombay (144). Sk. Sunil VA, President, SKAL International Bombay (144) couldn’t have put it across in a more perfect way when he said that, the event strengthened the commitment of giving back to the members and recognising their efforts with this event in particular, showcased the announcing of winners of our first-ever online auction of travel products which were offered to our members travel products at a 50 % discount. An overwhelming response was received till the last moment, from many members who bid and bagged all the vouchers sponsored by hotels, airlines, cruise liners and sports tourism promoters.
A heartfelt initiative under the SKAL’s CSR programme was witnessed, when all the Skalleagues and guests received a beautiful departing Christmas gift hamper sourced from ‘Together’ which is an organisation supporting autistic children. This was the most fitting way to end the event on a sweet note literally!
