HSBC Malta employees raised funds for the Pink October and Movember campaigns in these two months. In addition to the bank’s commitment to supporting cancer research, the Pink October and Movember events were run by staff members on their own – often to overwhelming support. The monies for Pink October were raised via sale of pink ties and scarfs as well as ice-cream whilst that for Movember was collected through the sale of pins. Funds will go to Europa Donna Malta and Action for Breast Cancer Foundation. On 29th November, a special talk was held for staff members, featuring two doctors and two cancer survivors. Earlier in September, the HSBC Malta Foundation donated more than €84,000 to the University of Malta for continuing research in the areas of breast, ovarian, and neuroblastoma cancers.
