Fourth edition of Martial Arts vs. Rock Bands held
For the fourth year running, a 12-hour marathon between rock bands and martial arts schools took place at the Magazino Hall and the old Power House at the Valletta Waterfront to raise funds in aid of Puttinu Cares.
The public had the opportunity to follow sixteen rock bands, whilst at the same time eighteen martial arts schools put on displays. The two groups competed for the public’s attention in a bid to outdo each other in the sums they raise from donations at the entrance. For the first time the two groups collected an equal number of funds.
The Puttinu Cares Foundation assists children needing treatment for cancer abroad and their carers. The foundation covers the flights and all accommodation expenses. This year 5,000 Euros were collected during this event.
A number of Valletta Cruise Port staff of together with their families and friends volunteered their time in the weeks prior to the event and on the day. Event sponsors included AV Warehouse, Bujinkan Ninpo Taijutsu Malta and Valletta Cruise Port plc.
