SDGG presents cheques to local charities
The Minister for Culture, Dr John Cortes, had presented cheques on behalf of the Self Determination for Gibraltar Group to the value of £9,000.
These funds were collected during the Gibraltar Fair and then shared amongst the charities that participated in National Celebrations.
Dr Cortes addressed representatives of the pertinent charities and said the “Government is indebted to those charities, as indeed we are to those non-charitable organisations and volunteer groups, because it is thanks to their efforts and their support that Gibraltar is able to enjoy a varied programme of entertainment during our annual festivities.”
“The staff at Gibraltar Cultural Services, on behalf of the SDGG, worked very hard to co-ordinate the many events that took place, but the charities, organisations and individuals who contributed to the success of this year’s Gibraltar Fair, National Celebrations, and its ancillary events need to be thanked and acknowledged.”
Cheques were presented to the following charities:
Gibraltar National Dance Organisation
Gibraltar Women’s Health Group
International Lions Club of Gibraltar
Psychological Support Group
