University students raise thousands for Maltese charities

The President has praised students at the University of Malta for their charity fundraising efforts.

Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca visited the Christmas on Campus event at Tal-Qroqq to personally thank students and staff for their work.

The event, held every year, aims to raise cash for Maltese charities and other good causes.

The Kunsill Studenti Universitarji, which organised Christmas on Campus, said it hoped to beat last year’s record amount of €6,500  in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund and Id-Dar Tal-Providenza in Siggiewi.

Several university organisations took part in activities including gift stalls and Christmas carol singing.

There were also musical performances by Kevin Paul Calleja, Yorika Attard, Stefan Galea, Miriana Ferrito and Matthias Grech.
