The Minister for Culture, Steven Linares, today presented cheques on behalf of the Self Determination for Gibraltar Group to the value of £9,300. These funds are collected during the Gibraltar Fair and National Day events and then shared amongst those charities that took part in our annual festivities.
Minister Linares addressed representatives of the pertinent charities and said:
‘Her Majesty’s 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 the Gibraltar Cultural Services worked very hard to coordinate the many events that took place, but the charities, organisations and individuals who contributed to the outstanding success of this year’s Gibraltar Fair, National Celebrations, National Day and its ancillary events need to be thanked and acknowledged.’
Cheques were presented to:
Psychological Support Group Lions International
Women’s Health Group Action for Schools
