Gozo CCU Foundation benefits from Malta Charities AssocGhajnsielem based sculptor Joe Xuereb, recently presented a donation of € 2000 on behalf of ‘The Malta Charities Association’ of London, to Dame Carmen Bellamy, Chairperson of the Gozo CCU Foundation, in the presence of Jacqueline Rose(Secretary) and Paul Bellamy (Thechnical Advisor).

As in previous years, Xuereb donated one of his works to ‘The Malta Charities.’ This was auctioned during their Gala Dinner which was held last November at The Landmark Hotel in London.

The fundraising event once again proved to be very successful and Xuereb’s sculpture gained the interest of several bidders, achieving a price of GBP £2500.

Various Gozitan charitable organisations have benefited over the years through financial help from the London based ‘Malta Charities,’ including the Arka Foundation, Oasis Foundation and Inspire.

This year it was decided to extend help to the Gozo CCU Foundation which, over the past years, has been doing sterling work in upgrading, to the highest standard the CCU department and the ECG Department of the Gozo General Hospital, through the donation of equipment among other things.

The aim of the Foundation is to improve facilities at the CCU in Gozo General Hospital. The provision of vital machinery in this unit receives no government funding.
