€25,000 donated to l-Istrina by Farsons Group 08/01/2015

Farsons Group has once again presented a cheque of €25,000 to Her Excellency the President of Malta, Marie Louise Coleiro Preca and Mr Edgar Preca during this year’s charity Istrina marathon held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre. The presentation was made by the Chairman, Mr Louis Farrugia and the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Norman Aquilina who confirmed the Group’s commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Mr Louis Farrugia, Chairman of the Farsons Group commented, “It is heartwarming to see the overwhelming participation in l-Istrina. This year other NGOs were also included in our fundraising drive thus further strengthening our strong belief in our corporate social responsibility.”

In fact the Group’s employees organised a number of initiatives throughout the year and a further sum of €2,050 collected by them will also be donated to the Malta Hospice Movement. These initiatives included a membership support drive for the Malta Hospice Movement, an end of summer barbecue lottery, several sports activities, and a ftira day. The sum excludes a money box collection drive as funds are still unknown until opened by the Hospice.

“The Group strives to promote corporate social responsibility awareness and support employee participation in many initiatives, including knowledge and awareness of physical and medical wellbeing and also other aspects such as mental health which is becoming an area of increasing concern that may affect our employees performance at the workplace and in their personal lives,” said Ms Antoinette Caruana, Group HR Manager of the Farsons Group.
