Xarabank raises €163,715 for Caritas
Xarabank raised €163,715 for Caritas yesterday in a programme dedicated to the drug problem.
The money was raised through phone-ins as a birthday gift to Caritas director Mgr Victor Grech, who yesterday turned 83.
During the programme a number of former drug addicts recounted their experience and expressed their gratitude to Caritas for saving them thanks to its various programmes.
Mgr Grech sometimes shed a tear as he accepted the gratitude and continually urged parents to look out for the signs that their children may be on drugs, and to seek professional help immediately.
