The activity opened its doors with a celebrated thank you mass. Right after the interventions from those involved in the organisation of this event, certificates of participation were presented to those present. The sports activities varied from football games where groups of U8, U9, U10 and U11 players were involved together with the Naxxar Football Nursery, a penalty shoot-out, matches organised between coaches, parents and grown-ups, keep fit sessions, a karate show, a small quiz and also an interview conducted with members from the Siġġiewi F.C. committee. Musical involvement was also included in the event with the Saint Nicholas Band paraded from the Siġġiewi village square to the football ground.

The Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation Hon. Silvio Schembri stated clearly that activities organised by the Responsible Gaming Foundation are an ideal way so that the services offered by the same foundation for those afflicted by the gambling addiction are well communicated to those that need help. ‘‘For this reason, the foundation trains its staff to be in a better position to offer all the help needed. With the help of such sports activities that are organised all year round we can keep our young ones and those vulnerable away from addictions and at the same time we offer an alternative’’, stated Hon. Schembri where he emphasised the importance that more operators get involved for a more healthy balance between the industry and society.

The Promotions Executive of the Responsible Gaming Foundation Mr Kayne Said talked about the importance of awareness about responsible gaming and also made reference to the Education Campaign among fourth year primary students, where RGF staff visit schools around Malta and Gozo alongside their mascot ‘’Chippy’’, to describe and discuss the problem of compulsive gambling from the early ages.

Mr Said also referred to the RGF freephone service 1777, where people suffering from addiction or relatives of such persons can call anonymously and find all the appropriate assistance from the trained staff of the foundation. Mr Said ended by stating the importance that such physical activities provide as an alternative to the gambling addiction.
