A to­tal of €7,300 was raised dur­ing Kalkara Festa Fut­bol on 16 Septem­ber in aid of Dar tal-Prov­i­denza. Last year, which was the first time this ac­tiv­ity had been or­gan­ised, over €5,000 were col­lected.

Around sixty play­ers took part in this Festa Fut­bol. They were mostly for­mer foot­ballers from Kalkara, forty years of age and over. Among them were for­mer na­tional team play­ers as well as those who played for well­known Mal­tese clubs. All play­ers who took part do­nated €10 to­wards Dar tal-Prov­i­denza. They were formed into four teams that com­peted in a tour­na­ment for which a size­able crowd was in at­ten­dance.

Spe­cial guest for the event was Arch­bishop Emer­i­tus Mgr Paul Cre­mona while MPs from the elec­toral dis­trict also at­tended.

Fr Martin Mi­callef, Direc­tor of Dar tal-Prov­i­denza, praised this ini­tia­tive that joins to­gether the val­ues of sport and sol­i­dar­ity. He thanked the or­gan­is­ers, the play­ers who took part, the spon­sors, those who at­tended and all those who made a do­na­tion.
