The year 2005/2006 is drawing to a close for Ladies’ Circle Malta with their AGM being the next meeting on schedule.
It has been a very busy year for this club. The National Charity Project this year was ‘Beyond the Moon’ which deals with making the dream of children suffering from life threatening illnesses come true. The club has collected funds through the sale of ceramic Thimbles, organizing a Recital and the donation from Association of Round Tables Malta through the auction of a painting donated by Madeleine Gera.
However this was not sufficient to make a child’s dream come true so the club sent out letters of appeal to various local companies. The first and most substantial donation came from EC Language school. They donated the grand sum of Lm650 made up of funds collected by staff, directors and the company. On 20 March 2006 CEO Andrew Mangion presented the cheque to Ladies’ Circle President Kathleen A Flynn. Through this donation and funds already collected by Ladies Circle Malta a total of €4000 has been collected and the necessary paperwork is underway in order for a Maltese Wish Family to be sent.
In the meantime, other appeal letters were responded to by sundry companies and individuals and 60% of the amount required for a second wish family have been collected. Anyone interested in donating to this fund to place a smile on yet another dying child’s face is requested to do so by contacting us through the ‘Contact Us’ page of this website.
