€7,300 raised during Kalkara Festa Futbol in aid of id-Dar tal-Providenza

A total of €7,300 was raised during Kalkara Festa Futbol on September 16th in aid of Id-Dar tal-Providenza. Last year, which was the first time this activity was organised, over €5,000 were collected.

Around sixty players took part in this Festa Futbol. They were mostly ex-footballers from Kalkara, forty years of age and over. Amongst them were ex-National team players as well as those who played for well known Maltese clubs. All players who took part donated €10 towards Id-Dar tal-Providenza. They were formed into four teams that competed in a tournament for which a sizeable crowd was in attendance.

Special guest for the event was Archbishop Emeritus, Mgr Pawl Cremona whilst Parliamentarians from the electoral district also attended.

The committee members of the Kalkara Boys Over 40 deserve to be congratulated for organising this Festa Futbol for which they have been preparing for months. Fr Martin Micallef, Director of Id-Dar tal-Providenza, praised this initiative that couples the values of sport and solidarity. He thanked the organisers, the players who took part, the sponsors, those who attended and all those who made a donation.
