For the seventh time, Lidl Malta will be supporting this event and taking an active role in the fundraising weekend. The sum to be donated contributes to the total amount of money collected over the three days with these funds going to the Puttinu Cares Foundation who offer an all-inclusive approach of care for families affected by cancer.
Lidl Malta, the country’s leading supermarket with eight outlets spread around the Maltese islands, will be the main sponsor of the 14th edition of the 60 hour Football & Volleyball Marathon. The event, which is organised by the Puttinu Cares Foundation and will be held between the 18th and 20th May at the Marsa Sports Ground, is a national charity fundraiser which is eagerly awaited by the Maltese people. A large number of teams will be challenging each other during the three fun packed days on both the football fields and the volleyball courts in order to raise funds for the foundation. The weekend promises to be fun for the whole family with a jam-packed programme including shows, a big fun park and animation for the little ones.
The company is proud to be the main sponsor of this marathon. “We are honoured that Puttinu Cares, have, for another edition, chosen to partner up with us. Being our ten year anniversary, our pride to be the main sponsor of this national event is even greater. We have the cause at heart and firmly believe that this national event and other similar occasions are instrumental to creating value for the local community and the society in which we operate. So much so that we have planned a detailed and vast CSR plan involving all the localities in which our outlets are situated as well as two national events, the marathon being one of these. Our commitment towards these kind of initiatives has never wavered but grown stronger with the passing years. Our mission is to continue supporting the community and help it grow alongside the Company’s success” said the Lidl Malta Management.
