5,000 piggybanks for Istrina
5,000 piggy bank’s which were distributed to classrooms last October are being collected, some of which by First Lady Margaret Abela The coins as well as notes are now being taken for sorting and counting by Bank of Valletta, a task which will take several days.
Last year, the l-Istrina BOV Piggy Bank Campaign contributed over €115,000 to the Malta Community Chest Fund. This year, Bank of Valletta has pledged to match the amount collected from the schools, which will then be presented during l-Istrina on Boxing Day.
Students were encouraged to donate some of their pocket money to people in need. With every small donation children will be participating actively in the collection that will be utilised to help those in need.
