PROVIDING SOME HORSEPOWER WITH €10,000 IN DONATIONS TO GOOD CAUSES IN MALTA

We donated €5,000 each towards two separate horse sanctuaries, the Dreams of Horses Farm in Gozo and RMJ Horses in Malta. The Dreams of Horses Farm provides horse assisted activities to children and adults with physical, social and emotional difficulties. The owner of the farm showed our team first-hand the kind and docile nature of the horses, and it was clear to see how this place could provide such a great outlet to those who need it. We are delighted to assist with a donation and hope to see the farm go from strength to strength. RMJ Horses rescue and care for severely neglected horses and look after them until they are ready to find a forever home. Hearing the stories of what these animals had to endure, and then seeing the love they showed to our staff at the slightest sign of affection was truly moving. We hope our donation can assist the team there in protecting such a loving and gentle animal.

A LIFE-CHANGING DONATION FOR DAMIAN -BLONDIE ASSOCIATION

Pragmatic Play donated €20,000 to the Blondie Association, and this money went towards covering the cost of a flight to Palermo for Damian, a small baby boy that required a liver transplant. His incredible mother donated part of her liver to give Damian a fighting chance for a better life. Blondie Association’s main aim is to assist severely sick children with getting the medical care they desperately need by flying them to countries where they can receive the proper medical attention. The Association raises awareness of this issue and organises flights to help these children get better. Two members of the Pragmatic Play team from Bucharest, Oana and Ana, were on board the flight from Romania to Palermo and helped Damian and his parents to have a safe and comfortable trip. In what was an emotional experience, Pragmatic Play was honoured to allow Damian’s mother to make such a strong and loving maternal sacrifice for her son.

BE KIND TO BEES! FRIENDS OF THE EARTH MALTA

We donated €6,000 to Friends of the Earth Malta and visited the team there to see the great work they do. Our donation will go towards the BeeAware campaign which promotes awareness of bees, pollination and the negative effect pesticides and toxic chemicals have on these creatures. Furthermore, it will also be used for the creation of a Bee Garden wherein the volunteers are planting flowers, trees and shrubs for bees to have a safe environment and a variety of food sources. We see this as a misunderstood but highly important cause, as if there are fewer bees there is less pollination of plants and crops which can have a huge effect on the overall ecosystem, ultimately potentially resulting in food shortages and certainly a lack of biodiversity on the planet.

ZIBEL DIVE CLEAN UP ON WORLD CLEAN UP DAY

We donated €6,000 to Żibel, a Maltese NGO that organises environmental cleanups and raises awareness of the modern-day problem of waste management. Our employees joined in on World Clean Up Day on 18th September to help Zibel's divers remove over nine tonnes of waste from the sea. Divers removed waste from the sea floor while the volunteers on land divided up the rubbish to enable its correct disposal. Not afraid of getting their hands dirty, our team got stuck in and sifted through metal, glass bottles, car batteries, ropes, tyres and… pretty much everything else you can imagine. The sheer amount of waste was a stark reminder that just because it’s underwater, it doesn’t mean it’s gone.

CALPE HOUSE

We made a donation of £11,000 to Gibraltar charity, Calpe House. Calpe House provides accommodation and support to Gibraltarian patients and escorts who are sent to London for medical treatment by the Gibraltar Health Authority. Their aim is to provide Gibraltarian patients with a 'home away from home' while they are in London. Pragmatic Play's donation will be used by Calpe House to build a dedicated business suite at their premises at 19-23 Norfolk Square, London. The business suite will allow sponsored patients and/or their escorts to have a space in which to carry out remote working whilst they are away from Gibraltar.

STEP UP FOR PARKINSON'S

Pragmatic Play was delighted to visit the Step Up For Parkinson's team at their centre in Malta. The team there does terrific work in raising awareness for and supporting those who suffer from the effects of Parkinson's disease in their lives. One innovative approach the team uses is to host free specialized movement classes for sufferers of the disease. These classes involve light exercise, dance and general movement for the group, creating a feel-good factor and plenty of smiling faces in the room! Pragmatic Play donated €5,000 to the foundation in the hope it can bring a better quality of life to all those affected by Parkinson’s in the local community.

ANAIS ASSOCIATION

ANAIS association was founded at the end of 2011, with its main purpose being to promote, respect and defend the rights of abused women, children, and young people. We donated the amount of €10,000 to this incredible association. Anais Association’s team was so generous to offer in return for the ladies at Pragmatic Play, an information and education workshop to prevent and combat violence against women. We hope this donation can assist ANAIS organisation in their fight both at local and national levels of government to have the rights of abused women prioritised.

HOMELESS ANIMAL HOSPITAL - SECOND DONATION!

When we need them, they are there for us, so when they need us, we should return the favour.

The team there does immense work in looking after and saving homeless animals that do not have anyone to care for them. Our team seen first-hand how a small amount of love and affection goes such a long way in giving these animals a better quality of life.

YMCA Malta is at the forefront of assisting and reintegrating the homeless community in Malta. The team there offers a spectrum of services to the underprivileged, including opportunities to help find work, food schemes, counselling services and so much more. The mission of the YMCA Malta truly resonated with Pragmatic Play’s belief of equality of opportunity for all members of society.

NGO DONATIONS FOR ANIMALS

We, at Pragmatic Play, love our animals and never miss a chance to show our support whenever we can! Recently, we have donated €6,000 to three charities that aim to offer sheltering and medical services to stray animals in Malta. MSPCA is the oldest shelter for cats and dogs in the community, fighting to provide an efficient rehoming service for abandoned animals through education and compassion. The Island Sanctuary caters for stray dogs in the community, sheltering those who couldn’t find a home yet. The Cat Sanctuary follows the footsteps of the Island Sanctuary, providing shelter and medical services for homeless cats.

Providing support for key animal companions allows those in need in society to be safe in the knowledge that should anything befall their pet, they are in good hands.

Prior Park sports pitch

The Prior Park School in Gibraltar had outgrown its existing recreational space and used a dormant space that nearby to create a brand-new sports pitch. Pragmatic Play donated £25,000 to the project, with a modern court now installed, replete with Prior Park School logo dominating the middle of the surface. The area not only offers school children a fantastic space to enjoy activities, but it also boasts enviable views over the Bay! In future, it is hoped the space can be made available to local sports teams and the public.
