The Third Annual 24 hour Charity Games Marathon Returns

This year players will raise much-needed funds for The Island Sanctuary and Gozo SPCA.
Saturday 29 September will see the return of the popular 24-Hour Games Marathon in Naxxar. Having successfully raised thousands of Euro for cancer charities in 2010 and 2011, this year’s event will be dedicated to securing funds for animal charities – specifically The Island Sanctuary and Gozo SPCA.

Participants will spend the 24-hour stretch playing a range of board and card games – as well as a 24-hour poker tournament, having already secured individual sponsorships for their efforts.

“There is a brilliant buzz about the event,” says Polly March, who has organised it in her Naxxar home for the past two years. “It’s a lot of fun but is always for a good cause. So far we’ve raised over €8,000 for the Malta Hospice Movement, and this year we hope to generate some much-needed funds for our furry friends.”
