Mal­taPost Is­sues “Trea­sures of Malta Se­ries – “Bal­cony Cor­bels” Stamp Set

DAF Drive Day 16 in aid of Put­tinu Cares Foun­da­tion

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

To­day, Mal­taPost will is­sue a set of three stamps de­pict­ing cor­bels (sal­ja­turi) that sup­port typ­i­cal Mal­tese bal­conies.

Bal­conies have had a very im­por­tant role in defin­ing the char­ac­ter of the Mal­tese ur­ban land­scape, es­pe­cially through their pro­fu­sion of colours and dec­o­ra­tion. In fact bal­conies high­light the streets of Malta and Gozo. One es­sen­tial fea­ture of bal­conies is the cor­bels used to sup­port them. ‘Sal­ja­turi’ may be lav­ishly dec­o­rated in a va­ri­ety of man­ners fea­tur­ing gar­goyles, fig­ure­heads, em­blems or other dec­o­ra­tions.

The stamps will be avail­able as from to­day from all Post Of­fices in Malta and Gozo. As part of its So­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity, United Equip­ment to­gether with DAF N.V of Nether­lands are join­ing forces in or­der to or­gan­ise a ‘DAF Drive Day 16’ to­mor­row in aid of Put­tinu Cares Foun­da­tion.

DAF Deal­ers are or­gan­is­ing a fund-rais­ing ac­tiv­ity in aid of Put­tinu Cares Foun­da­tion, where all the DAF Truck Own­ers / driv­ers and their fam­i­lies are in­vited to join in for a short drive from Ta’ Qali to the premises in Bur­mar­rad. DAF truck own­ers / driv­ers and their fam­i­lies will be wel­comed at Ta’ Qali (near ASM park­ing area) at 9am for a meet and greet ses­sion where all the trucks will line up for the Drive at 10am.
