Christmas events with IFMSA-Poland

mis

If you haven’t been infected by the Christmas spirit yet, it may change once you take part in special events organised by our students! As each year, the Bydgoszcz branch of IFMSA-Poland has created a wonderful opportunity for everyone to share some warmth and get involved in kind, selfless acts. Join us for this year’s edition of the “Teddy bear under the hospital Christmas tree” campaign!

The project entitled “Teddy bear under the hospital Christmas tree” was first launched in 2002 with the aim of collecting funds to buy modest gifts for children who are forced to spend this most joyful season in hospital, away from their families and friends. The campaign has been organised by IFMSA Bydgoszcz for several years now.

This year’s edition features two main events:

  • Christmas cake and pastry fair – 6 December (Wednesday),
  • Christmas concert with a raffle – 8 December (Friday).

All profits from the events will be used entirely for charity-based projects. More details below:
