Palma.—Pirates celebrated ten years of raising money for Great Ormond Street hospital last month, with their annual star-studded charity premiere.
Despite the tough economic times under which we are all having to live, Pirates managed to raise a total of 32'489, 36 euros this year which, as Catherine Sasson, the Managing Director of Globo Balear admitted “is a fantastic amount of money considering the the times in which we live.” Sasson continued, “We would like to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone at Pirates to thank you for your generous support for our 2013 Charity Premiere. “It was a wonderful evening, made all the more special by the presence of a group of deserving children from Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Truly proud “ This year we managed to raise 32'489.36€ which in these times is still a fantastic amount of money. “Over the past 10 years with your help we have now raised 714'679.41€ “We are truly proud of what has been achieved to date, however it simply would not be possible for us to stage such a grand event and raise such a staggering amount of money without, the fantastic support we have received from all quarters. “ We are immensely grateful to all and look forward to calling on your support again in 2014.
On behalf of everyone at Pirates and GOSH, once again, thank you.” What made the annual event even more special is that a number of patients from GOSH, and their parents, were flown down to Majorca for a week's holiday.
