Banif Bank proud sponsor of President’s Charity Fun Run
Banif Bank is very proud to be sponsoring The President’s Charity Fun Run for the second year running. The Fun Run is organised by the Malta Community Chest Fund in order to raise funds for charity. This year’s edition of the Fun Run will be held on Sunday 5th December 2010.
“Last year The President’s Charity Fun Run was a very successful event and it exceeded all our expectations. In fact, we are very proud to say that Banif made the biggest donation towards the Malta Community Chest Fund during Istrina 2009,” said Mr. Nuno Martins, Chief Operating Officer of Banif Bank during the press conference announcing this year’s event.
“This year we will once again be doubling the amount collected from participation fees and will be giving a commemorative t-shirt to all participants. We hope that this year will be another success story that will enable us to collect even more funds for the people in need,” continued Mr. Martins.
Banif is very grateful to H.E. The President of Malta, Dr. George Abela and Mrs. Abela, as patrons of the Malta Community Chest Fund, for giving this opportunity to the Bank to be the sole sponsors of this charity event, which also promotes a healthy lifestyle.
This initiative also follows a group policy that puts Corporate Social Responsibility high on the agenda. Banif is very pleased with its contribution made towards the local community even at this initial stage of the Bank’s operations.
“We have no doubt that the way forward for our Bank is not only to offer innovative banking products and services, but also to make our presence felt in the Maltese community. Banif is in continuous dialogue with stakeholders to create partnerships of high standing who share our values, in order to achieve improved social wellbeing and invest in the future of our society. We are committed to make a valuable contribution to the local community in proportion with the Bank’s business activities, which means that this contribution will increase in the years to come,” concluded Mr. Martins.
Banif will be actively involved in this event and will be making its branches available to the general public to submit their application to participate in this Fun Run.
