On Sunday 14th April, The STM Group are holding a fun run around the Rock, in aid of local children’s charity Wobbles. The run will begin at 10am at Casemates Square and will be split into a 5-kilometre town run or a 10 kilometre run around the Rock, for those brave and fit enough.
For those wishing to enter the 10K race, a £10 entry fee must be submitted in advance, or £15 on the day. Those entering the 5K run are asked to pay either £5 in advance or £10 on the day. Event t-shirts will be on sale at £5 each, but participants must order before 28th March. Individuals who raise more than £25 for the charity will receive a t-shirt for free.
Minister for Health, Dr John Cortes, recently paid a visit to the local branch of the Red Cross to learn and explore the various services they provide. ‘I feel I should be aware of all aspects of health provision within Gibraltar and not just those provided by the GHA,’ noted the Minister. ‘I am also a great believer in the value of the work done by the voluntary sector.’
Dr. Cortes was briefed by Eddie Davies, the Chairman, Edgar Lavarello, the Treasurer and Pat Dalli, the Welfare Officer. He also met volunteers George Martin and Francis Duran.
