Strummin ‘s beneficiary night was held on Monday 26th July at the University Chapel. It’s the culmination of a year’s work for the 100 plus volunteers within Strummin. Last year’s beneficary,Dr. Klown sent one of the clown doctors to accompany the directors Mr & Mrs. Sleypen for the small ceremony.Strummin coordinator Gwyneth Zammit presented the sum of 1800 Euro,the funds raised during last year’s concerts . Speaking on behalf of all the clown doctors,Mr.Maurice Sleypen expressed his gratitude towards all the Strummin family as he explained the invaluable work done by Dr. Klown at Mater Dei ‘s children’s wards.
The beneficiary night also served as the launching platform for this year’s beneficiary. Mrs. Nora Macelli from Fondazzjoni St. Jeanne Antide was introduced and she explained the foundation’s work which is primarily of social work within the community. She said that the funds raised from this year’s concerts will go towards their SOAR project which is aimed to support victims of domestic violence and also offers workshops /educational sessions on dating violence.
It was a good opportunity to welcome some of the new members in the Strummin family and also to meet some familiar faces who were with us in the past but who cannot make it this time round. The night ended with some refreshments and an open mic session ……….. a simple set up of acoustic guitar and a microphone….yet the vibe was excellent! Strummin What a Feelin’……… Good vibes all around 🙂
Strummin What a Feelin’ concerts shall be held on the 9th and 10th October at the Sir Temi Zammit Hall, University of Malta.
