Today is the second day of the Most Beautiful Festival in the World Pol’and’Rock Festival. It is already 24th edition of this amazing event.
We have surpassed the estimated acount!
Today, at 3 P CET we have noted that the amount we have on our 25th Grand Finale account has surpassed the estimated, preliminary amount we have announced on the day of the Grand Finale! We are still receiving financial reports from the Collection Centres, and our official financial partner, Pekao SA bank, is re-counting the funds raised by the Collection Centres in order to be able to provide us with the exact sum. What is more, we are still receiving support in the form of various donations made online. For example, some people are still in a fierce rivalry for Mick Jagger's own guitar at our charitable online auction!
Why is it such big news? Because we not only have managed to raise over 62 000 000 PLN in order to purchase medical equipment for paediatric wards and make sure that the senior patients receive care in dignified environment, but we can now be sure that this amount will be increasing day by day, as the funds are still being counted, and some forms of donations are still open to the public. You can support the goad of the Grand Finale by making a quick card transaction, for example.
The official and final amount will be announced at a press conference, which will take place on March 7th.
The members of the Board of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation received European Citizen's Prize in the European Parliament. We have been honoured to receive the award alongside three other Polish NGOs: Polish-Jewish Forum and Alicja Szatkowska.
We are launching a new training session at Szadowo-Młyn training centre. Our 3-day course is a great combination of team-building, first aid and survival exercises and tasks, which prepare future volunteers for their work at the Pol'and'Rock Festival and other activities of our charity.
