Mr George Stasinopoulos, the Zakynthian Regional Director also gave a speech and council members Mr Dimirtris Koutsogiannis, Mr Angelo Sevastiadis and Mr George Armenis were also present at the event.

Those who stood out were the Volunteers. From the offering of mulled wine and traditional Greek Christmas delights.


The English choir the “Winter Warblers” made an exceptional appearance dressed in vintage style singing typical English Christmas carols. The crowd calling out Bravo and clapping to their efforts. Many had turned up just to listen to them.

The event was a success with people of all ages enjoying what the Volunteers had to offer, even the little ones had smiles on their faces when balloons were handed out by volunteers.

Zakynthos Informer would like to thank ZanteTimes news and Jackie Boots for their videos.
