Inspite of the bad weather with scattered showers that were thundery at times, more than €3,000 were raised this morning (Sunday. 20th December 2015), when a nice group of people braved the cold waters at Għadira Bay in aid of Id-Dar tal-Providenza. (Two jpgs attached) Fr Martin Micallef, Director of the Home, thanked all those who swam and helped raise this sum and encouraged the Maltese public to once again show its generosity towards id-Dar tal-Providenza on New Year’s Day.
This Charity Swim was the initiative of Mr Manuel Calleja of Koptaco Coaches Cooperative Ltd in conjunction with the Malta Rugby Football Union and a number of enthusiasts of Boxing, Kickboxing, Thai Boxing, Karate and Martial Arts. Last year €2,343 were raised in aid of the Siġġiewi Home.
The money collected will be presented to the Home during the Festa ta’ Ġenerożità that will be televised on New Year’s Day. It is organised by RTK4Charity in conjunction with id-Dar tal-Providenza.
