Members of the International Women’s Association of Vilnius (IWAV) and our international diplomatic community joined together in preparation for the 17th International Christmas Charity Bazaar (ICCB) to bake a traditional British Christmas Cake.

Set in the welcoming kitchen of our gracious host, Beatos Virtuve (Patron of this year‘s Christmas Bazaar), the First Lady of Lithuania Mrs. Diana Nausėdienė was joined by ladies from IWAV, organizers of the Bazaar, coordinators of the international stands, representatives of the foreign embassies in Lithuania, Honorary Partron Birute Vizgirda, and ICCB Goodwill Ambassadors Beata Nicholson, Asta Meschino, and Erica Jennings.

The traditional British cake will mature until the Bazaar on November 30th at Vilnius City Hall! All the proceeds from the ICCB will go directly to supporting our wonderful and deserving beneficiaries!
