Presentation of Cheques – National Day 2019


The Minister for Culture, the Hon Steven Linares, today presented cheques on behalf of the Self
Determination for Gibraltar Group to the value of £7,300. 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 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 SDGG and 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: -

Psychological Support Group
Lions International
Women’s Health Group
Shrine of Our Lady of Europe
Gib Sams
Club House Gibraltar
Action for Schools
