Puttinu Cares, one of Malta most cherished charity organisations, held its annual 60-hour marathon last weekend, and it somehow managed to beat all its amazing previous records.
By the end of the weekend, the impressive total sum stood at €2,062,648.
“We thank all those of you who contributed, in one way or another, to this resounding success,” the charity said on Monday morning. “Your generosity continues to amaze and encourage us in reaching our goal of achieving Puttinu’s London project.”
Puttinu Cares continue to raise funds to add blocks of apartments close to central London hospitals. They currently already have 12, with a recent Xarabank fundraiser earlier this April, managing to add another €1.3 million towards acquiring two more London apartments.
The weekend saw Marsa Sports Ground transformed into a gathering of hundreds of volunteers and even more attendees, with a massive dance party kicking off the whole thing on the 22nd. As usual, Puttinu Cares also held a 60-hour football and volleyball marathon.
The children’s cancer society, founded back in 2002, began with the mission of bringing vivid colour and jovial life into the the children’s ward of St. Luke’s Hospital. With the help of a huge number of volunteers and generous sponsors, the charity succeeded and they gained tremendous momentum, stealing the hearts of the island along the way.
