PRESENTATION OF CHEQUES – NATIONAL DAY 2016
The Minister for Culture, the Hon Steven Linares, today presented cheques on behalf of the Self
Determination for Gibraltar Group to the value of £8,200. These funds are collected during the
Gibraltar Fair and National Day events and then 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 noncharitable
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 Celebrations, National Day and its ancillary events
need to be thanked and acknowledged.’
Cheques were presented to: -
Actions for Schools
Lions Club of Gibraltar
Psychological Support Group
St John Ambulance
