National Day Cheque Presentation


Date: 22nd September 2015

Presentation of Cheques – National Day 2015

The Minister for Culture, the Hon Steven Linares, today presented cheques on behalf of the Self Determination for Gibraltar Group to the value of £9,900. These funds were collected during the Gibraltar Fair and National Day events and shared amongst those charities that took part in our annual festivities.

 Minister Linares addressed representatives of the pertinent charities and said:

 ‘Her Majesty’s Government is indebted to those charities, as indeed we are to those non-charitable organisations and volunteer groups, because it is thanks to their efforts and their support that Gibraltar is able to enjoy a varied programme of entertainment during our annual festivities.

The staff at the Gibraltar Cultural Services worked very hard to co-ordinate the many events that took place, but the charities, organisations and individuals who contributed to the outstanding success of this year’s Gibraltar Fair, National Week, National Day and its ancillary events need to be thanked and acknowledged.’

 Cheques were presented to:

  • Catholic Education Service
  • Gibraltar Girl Guides
  • Lions Club of Gibraltar
