A massive well done is in order for the team at Victory Kitchen who managed to raise over €35,000 as a result of their 15km swim done last week on 10th September after having to postpone the original swim date (7th September) due to unfavourable weather conditions. 

"The first ever event in aid of Victory Kitchen raised over €35,000 which will help us keep supporting those in need. We would like to thank everyone who has helped us out in any way," their Facebook post read.

Rafel Sammut (the founder of the Kitchen), together with Clyde Bonello, swam 15km in Maltese waters, starting from Cirkewwa at 6am and swimming all the way to Dingli Cliffs. “I would like to thank everyone who supported us to date. Since March 2020 we have helped feed 19,757 people and 6,952 families. But there is much more to be done. Thanks to our supporters and the public, we can now continue doing this work," Rafel said in a statement.
