DHL Ex­press Plane Pull 3 for Put­tinu Cares

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

For the third suc­ces­sive year, DHL Ex­press, in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Phoenix Sports Club, yes­ter­day or­gan­ised Plane Pull Malta, with the cho­sen char­ity to ben­e­fit from all pro­ceeds be­ing the Put­tinu Cares Foun­da­tion.

Com­ment­ing on this lat­est edi­tion of the Plane Pull, Charles Schi­avone, Man­ager of DHL Ex­press Malta, ex­plained, “Our goal once again this year is to raise as much as pos­si­ble for our cho­sen char­ity. This needs to be achieved while re- spect­ing all the reg­u­la­tions within Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port’s perime­ter for health, safety and se­cu­rity of all those in­volved.

“All those who vol­un­teer to come to pull the air­craft must be aware that the plane’s en­gines will be on and there will be an en­gi­neer in the pilot’s seat, since he will need to ap­ply the brakes at the end of each pull. In ad­di­tion, there will be an­other en­gi­neer on the ground to give the other en­gi­neer di­rec­tions.”

Twelve teams com­pris­ing 214 peo­ple took part in yes­ter­day’s plane pull, with the fastest time be­ing reg­is­tered by a group of El­bros em­ploy­ees, who com­pleted the 20-me­tre dis­tance in 31.31 sec­onds. El­bros do­nated €1,000 to the Plane Pull Malta, which in turn is do­nat­ing all pro­ceeds to Put­tinu Cares

There were two teams from the Po­lice. Both In­te­rior Min­is­ter Carmelo Abela and the Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Lawrence Cu­ta­jar were present to urge on the two teams.
