St. John Rescue wins National Volunteer Award
The Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector (MCVS), yesterday presented the National Volunteer Award 2012 during a ceremony at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta.
The National Volunteer Award recognises the important work carried out by those who volunteer with non-profit organisations, charities and NGOs, to contribute towards volunteering.
The 2012 National Volunteer Award was presented to:
- 1st Place: Christopher Borg Cardona from St. John Rescue Corps – Malta
- 2nd Place: Philip Chircop from the Central Bank Pensioners Association
- 3rd Place: Rosalind Agius from the Abandoned Animals Association
The Awards were presented by Chairperson MCVS Robert Farrugia, Chairperson of the Evaluation Committee Miriam Teuma and Joe Dimech.
During his speech, Mr. Robert Farrugia said that year after year one can constantly see the fruits of volunteering as no activity in Malta takes happens without the help of voluntary organisations.
