Għargħur Primary organises annual Borża ta’ San Martin event

Għargħur Primary School Council organised the annual Borża ta’ San Martin educational fundraising event.

Following the success registered the last years, the Borża ta’ San Martin yet again included a fair-trade concept.

Each bag contained the traditional sweet bun (ħbejża ta’ San Martin), a few walnuts and hazelnuts, a tangerine or clementine and an organic & fair-trade date and walnut bar. The bag also included information about fairtrade.

This year we took this event one step further and paced toward sustainability and tradition. In past years a paper bag was used, whereas, this year it was a colourful cloth bag pulled with a string from the top. Students are refunded €1 if the cloth bag is returned to school.

Kudos to the Gharghur School Community and School Council members. A special thanks goes to Ms Rose and Mr Portelli who saw to the sewing of the fabric bags and to the volunteers who filled the bags.
