All roads will lead to Kalkara on Friday, 16th September from 6.00pm onwards for the Futbol Festa being organised at the Kalkara football ground in aid of Id-Dar tal-Providenza. Details were given during a press conference by Mr Alex Farrugia and Mr Martin Meilaq, two members of the organising committee, and Fr Martin Micallef, Director of the Home who were amongst the speakers. Also present were some ex-players from Kalkara.
Taking part in this Futbol Festa will be a good number of Kalkara over-40-year-olds, including several ex-national team players who over the years played for some of the top Maltese clubs. All players taking part will be donating €10 towards Id-Dar tal-Providenza. Special guest for this occasion will be Archbishop Emeritus Mgr Paul Cremona.
All those who would like to make their donations are invited to attend this activity that is expected to provide an evening of football and entertainment. Donations may also be made through BOV Account number 40018703841.
The Kalkara Boys Over 40 Committee has been working very hard during the past months for the success of this activity and they are sure that with everybody’s help this activity will be a great show of solidarity for Id-Dar tal-Providenza. They appreciate the support of the Maltese sports media for this activity which will see the gathering of several generations of Kalkara players who at different times have been protagonists in Maltese football, as well as other participants who at some time or another had a connection with the club and team of the picturesque village of Kalkara.
Fr Martin Micallef thanked the organisers, the players taking part, the sponsors as well as all those who will be present at the Kalkara football ground on 16th September and will be making their donations towards Id-Dar tal-Providenza. Last year more than €5000 were collected.
