Take a night walk in Malta for a great cause

It takes a special person to walk all night in Malta.

But that what thousands of people will be doing on March 30 in aid of charity.

Organisers of this year’s Good Friday Night Walk have told 89.7 Bay that they are hoping for their biggest turnout yet.

The annual pilgrimage starts in the centre of Mellieha and finishes around four hours later in Senglea.

A fabulous walk around some of Malta’s iconic sights, the event is a great way to raise money for the Puttinu Cares cancer support group whilst catching up with friends and colleagues.

It’s open to everyone and there are plenty of refreshments to keep you going along the way.

If 30km seems a bit daunting, don’t worry, it’s easily achievable for people of average fitness.

Around 9,000 people took part last year when more than €92,000 were raised.

People interested in joining the night walk are asked to donate a minimum of €10.

The night walk was started in 2003 by Joseph Vella and his son-in-law Glenn – and has grown and grown every year since.

The event will be held during the early hours of Good Friday, starting at 12.30am from Mellieha Parish Square.

To book a seat on one of the transport buses after the walk, call 9999 1800 or send a message to the Mixja Gimgħa l-Kbira 2018 on Facebook.
