MABC FUND-RAISING EVENT

Msida Arrows Badminton Club has recently organised a fund-raising activity in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund.

This event formed an integral part of a national initiative – which has consistently developed over the years and which this year has been designated as “Solidarjeta bl-isports” – intended to raise money through sporting activities of whatever kind.

The event consisted of a twelve-hour Badminton marathon which took place at St. Martin’s College in Swatar; it took the form of a friendly competition between all the Club's several members.

No distinction was made in the age or the playing standard of the participants. The event was not about winning or losing; it was about having fun while raising funds for a noble cause.

Participants were required to donate a minimum amount of €5.00 per person. They were also encouraged to collect donations in advance from family members and friends.

The entire proceeds from this event were proudly donated by the Club to the “Solidarjeta bl-isports” campaign.

It is relevant to highlight the fact that the College administration promptly accepted the Club’s proposal not to charge the usual sports hall rental fees for this event; and this so as to maximise the proceeds generated by the marathon.

On its part, the Club integrated such fees in the overall amount donated to the campaign.

While thanking its members, Msida Arrows expressed its satisfaction at their enthusiastic participation as well as at the generosity shown in putting together the donated amount.

The Club also stated its continued intention to organise other similar fund-raising events in future.
