2023 BOV Volleyball Marathon kicks off on the 30th June

The BOV Volley Marathon in aid of Id‑Dar tal‑Providenza is back with 53 hours of continuous play in the car park of the Home in Siġġiewi. The 13th edition of the Marathon will kick off on Friday 30th June at 6.00pm and continue non‑stop until midnight on Sunday 2nd July 2023. It will be officially opened by the Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Chris Fearne with the band of the Armed Forces of Malta in attendance.

The Marathon was officially launched by Fr Martin Micallef, Director of Id‑Dar tal‑Providenza and Charles Azzopardi, Head CSR Dept at Bank of Valletta during a press conference held at the Pembroke Secondary School within St. Clare’s College where the training and preparation of the players taking part in the marathon are underway.

“The BOV Volleyball Marathon is one of our main annual fundraising event that helps us in our mission to provide and improve upon the various useful services offered.” said Fr Martin.  “It also encourages volunteering and sends out a message that Maltese society needs to invest in it.  Through this marathon, the Home also wants to enourage sports and invest in a healthier lifestyle. Last but not least, id‑Dar tal‑Providenza appeals to society to respect persons with disability at all times and treat them with the dignity they deserve whilst offering them choices and opportunities that everyone has a right to enjoy.”

“The BOV Volleyball Marathon combines two of the main pillars driving our CSR Programme, Philanthropy and Sports,” said Mr Azzopardi. “We at Bank of Valletta prides ourselves as making part of an organization that is an instrumental player in Malta’s sustainable development. We commend the services provided by id‑Dar tal‑Providenza within the Maltese Community and we are delighted to assist them in continuing to provide these essential services in line with our commitment towards the community in which we operate.”

Every night till Sunday night there will be entertainment provided on the main stage, food stalls and games for kids. The Marathon will be broadcast live on the main local TV stations. Besides the 40 protagonist players of the Marathon there are around 200 volunteers helping out during the event.
