GDP raise over £1,000 for Morocco earthquake appeal
A total of £1,155 was raised for the Morocco earthquake appeal by the Gibraltar Defence Police officers and support staff.
This included funds from the GDP Federation charitable fund and the GDP Benevolent Fund as well.
This was donated to locally registered charities, the Straits of Gibraltar Association and Caring for Gibraltar.
GDP Deputy Chief of Police Superintendent, Mark Wook, and GDPF Chairman, Reggie Azopardi, met the charity’s trustee, Jayne Wink, and charity volunteers at GDP Headquarters to present a cheque and discuss their work.
“Over recent weeks, we have been collecting individual donations from police officers and support staff, and further donations from our Federation charity fund and GDP Benevolent fund,” Mr Azopardi said.
“We have discussed with Ms Wink, that our contribution will be directed towards purchasing much needed essential equipment and winter clothing for young children in the affected communities in Morocco.”
“We understand the importance of collaboration and encourage individuals and other local organisations to join us in supporting the Strait of Gibraltar Association and Caring for Gibraltar, Morocco earthquake appeal.”
“Together, we can make an impact and help rebuild the lives of those affected by this disaster.”
