Several Vodafone Malta employees participated actively in the Puttinu Cares Football Marathon, an annual fund raising marathon held at the Marsa Sports Grounds. Vodafone Malta Foundation presented a €3,600 donation which is part of a total sum collected through the Vodafone Employee Contribution for Charity Scheme, where employees make a monthly contribution taken directly from their salary towards different charities..
“Through this donation, the Vodafone Malta Foundation together with Vodafone employees would like to show their appreciation to the dedication shown by this association in its altruistic mission,” said Roberta Pace, Administrator at Vodafone Malta Foundation. “We believe that we should all work together to help those in need and we hope that our donation will encourage others to follow this example.”
The 12th edition of the Puttinu Cares Football Marathon raised a total of over €1.3 million funds that will pay for and maintain apartments in Sutton to help patients requiring treatment for cancer in the UK and their relatives. The marathon included a weekend of fun and solidarity dedicated to children and adultsalike. The weekend included varied entertainment with clowns, jugglers and magicians giving all those who attended a huge smile on their face together with a number of football matches organised between different companies and organisations.
“We would like to thank the Vodafone Malta Foundation for their continuos support,” said Rennie Zerafa, a representative from Puttinu Cares. “Our work in the community would not be possible without the assistance of such organisations from the private sector. This invaluable contribution will help raise funds to support an increasing number of children and families who are passing through very difficult times.”
