Date of the 30th Grand Finale Revealed
Even though it has been our custom to hold the Grand Finale fundraiser on the second Sunday of January, we are not the ones to shy away from change and improvement. We have been forced to move the date of this year's fundraiser due to pandemic restrictions and we have seen plenty of positive feedback from the volunteers and people involved in running local Collection Centres. That extra time helped dot all the is and cross all ts, so, after a brief consideration, we decided to push the date of the next year's Grand Finale to the end of January.
It seemed appropriate to organize the 30th edition of our charitable collection on January 30th. We will announce the medical objective of the fundraiser later this year.
The second batch of PPE for frontline medical staff reached Poland on Saturday. 787-8 Dreamliner carrying 12.5 tonnes of protective coveralls touched down in Warsaw.
Between 2013 and 2017 he Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation donated equipment for over PLN 99 000 000 in aid of one of the most neglected and underfunded branches of medicine - geriatrics. Today, as we celebrate the International Day of Older Persons we look back on the ways in which we supported the elderly patients.
