Pjazza Tigne fundraising Activity
December 11 2022
The Canine SAR Team participated in the Pjazza Tigne Christmas Market on the 10th and 11th of December, aiming to raise awareness and drive donations towards their cause.
The market was organised by Times Events, who generously allocated a large space towards the initiative free of charge. Within this space,an agility course was set up wherein the team’s canines could demonstrate their skills, using equipment generously donated by Tough Mudder Malta. The course was also open to visiting dogs who explored the course under the expert guidance of the trainers, much to their owners’ delight.
Despite strong winds and rainy weather, the event was a success. Passers-by expressed a great deal of interest in the Team’s cause. More than 10 have signed up to the team after visiting the stand, and €635 was raised. These donations will fund the medical supplies and equipment needed for training and deployment.
This event closes off the first full year of the Team’s operation, providing them with a motivational boost to meet and exceed challenging goals in 2023.
