Following the success of the previous editions, Senglea Nursery will be organising once again a one-day Football Festival in aid of The Malta Hospice Movement. This tournament, the Dylan Bugeja Tournament, is named after Dylan, a Senglea Nursery player, who died three years ago. All the proceeds collected during this tournament will be devolved towards the Malta Hospice Movement.
Present for the press conference which was held at Senglea Nursery’s Centre on Thursday, was Mr. Giovanni Carmelo Navarro, one of Hospice Movement’s volunteers. He explained that the Hospice Movement offers help and care for patients with a terminal illness and also offers support to the patients’ families.
Senglea Nursery President, Mr. Stephen Spiteri gave details about the tournament, stressing the importance of promoting in younger children the love of helping others and the objective of this tournament, aimed towards helping such a noble organization, which helps a lot of people.
Even though Senglea Nursery is a small nursery, it always seeks to help organisations in need of fund-raising. All proceeds from activities carried out by Senglea Nursery for such causes go towards these organisations. This season, Senglea Nursery also organised a tournament in aid of an organisation which takes care of stray cats. These two tournaments are held in order to educate the Senglea youngsters in helping and promote generosity.
On Sunday, 1st April 2011, nurseries will be participating in a 5 a-side tournament at the Tal-Ponta synthetic pitch at Senglea. This tournament is open for Under-8, Under-11, Under-13 and Under-15 teams.
A fee of €25 per team will be donated to the Hospice Movement.
Teams interested to participate should phone Senglea Nursery’s President on 79373836 or e-mail [email protected] Each nursery can participate with a maximum of 3 teams for each category. Applications will be received on a first come first served basis and the closing date will be Sunday, 25th March.
