A five-a-side football tournament organised with The British High Commission has raised €2,500 for Inspire – the foundation for inclusion.
Ten teams from diplomatic missions and private companies took part in the tournament which was held at St Martin’s College, Swatar.Inspire works to help children and adults with disabilities achieve their full potential. The money raised will go towards introducing more services, therapies and education to help people with disabilities integrate better in society.
In addition to the British High Commission and Inspire, the teams that took part were Bank Of Valletta (BoV), , the German Embassy, the Australian High Commission, PWC, Deloitte, Memories, Vodafone and the Irish Embassy.
The two teams still standing by the final were BOV and Vodafone. BOV prevailed to win the tournament, with Vodafone second and Deloitte third . An awards ceremony and reception was later held at the British High Commissioner’s residence.
Nathan Farrugia, Inspire’s CEO said: “The tournament was the perfect example of people using their energy to have fun and do good at the same time. On behalf of every client and family we help at Inspire, I thank all the participants as well as the organisers for making the day a huge success. This wonderful donation will help Inspire fund vital disability services so that we can work to ensure that more and more families get the help they need.”
British High Commissioner Rob Luke said: “It was great to take part in an informal and fun event while raising funds for a worthy cause, even if my own team’s performance does not bode well for the World Cup! We are very grateful to all the participants who donated their time and money to help Inspire.
