The European Year of Volunteering 2011-Tour opens in Valletta – Day 7

Sunday and it it the last full day of the European Tour – the Malta lap.  Apart from the EYV events in the tent, today was an important day where “volunteer! You make a difference” was put to practice.  In fact His Excellency the President of the Republic Dr. George Abela, the Community Chest Fund, organised for the thrid consecutive year the President’s Charity Fun Run.  More than twelve thousand peopple participated in the run, whose proceeds will go towards the same Community Chest Fund which in turn will distribute the same funds during the coming year to voluntary organisations and individuals who request its support.  The event passed next to the European Tour tent when entering the City of Valletta.  A large crowd visited the tent when the Charity Fun Run was over.
