Events & Press Releases
Calamatta Cuschieri joins Malta Clean-Up for Earth Day
The Calamatta Cuschieri team, along with family and friends, descended upon Buskett Gardens for this year’s edition of Earth Day, where multiple bags of recycling and waste were collected, with these being disposed of appropriately at the end of the event.
Michael Galea, Group COO commented “As CC we are proud to have contributed to this noble cause. Taking part in Earth Day 2018 was important for us to be able to demonstrate our support and raise awareness on a matter which is high on our agenda. The event also served as a timely reminder of our collective responsibility towards taking care of our precious environment. We truly appreciate our staff’s support in helping us make such events a success.”
Malta Clean-Up was created by Ms Camilla Applegren to help rid the Maltese Islands of waste found in the environment and to create a national registry of illegal dumpsites. Around the globe, today there is in excess of 100 million tons of illegal garbage lying around. Unsurprisingly every day this number continues to increase.
Calamatta Cuschieri Group Goes Pink for October
Calamatta Cuschieri Group is once again joining the Pink October movement in the fight against breast cancer. Throughout the month of October, the company will be arranging a number of fund raising events to help this cause. All funds raised will be donated to Action for Breast Cancer & the Marigold Foundation.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer globally, and one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths in women over the age of 30 in Malta; however, it is also prevalent in men. If breast cancer is detected early enough, it can be successfully treated. By raising awareness, the Pink October movement hopes to encourage more women to get more frequent screening, enhancing their chance at successful treatment.
This year Calamatta Cuschieri Group’s events range from Dress-Down Friday’s and a raffle, to a heated Bake-Off and exciting team competitions, in which staff participate and donations will be collected. Employees are encouraged to take part in the Pink October initiative by donating €10 and participating in the events.

Throughout the month of October, the company will be organising a series of events to help raise funds for this cause. For every Friday in October Calamatta Cuschieri employees are encouraged to participate in DRESS DOWN Fridays by donating €10 and wearing a touch of pink. On the 7th of October we will be organising a Cake Bake off sale where employees are encouraged to bake cakes, cupcakes, cookies or muffins and then sell them to clients and other employees. All proceeds from the sales will be donated to Pink October. During this month we will also be organising an informative talk by a Breast cancer Specialist nurse. Clients are welcomed to participate in these events.
The company will be matching the amount raised from the events and therefore doubling the total amount of proceeds raised. All proceeds will be used for the purchasing of medical equipment that will further enhance breast cancer treatment. Those who wish to donate for the cause can visit www.pinkoctober.support.
Calamatta Cuschieri hosted it’s 2nd Blood Donation Drive
Calamatta Cuschieri, one of Malta’s leading financial services firms hosted its 2nd blood donation drive in collaboration with the National Blood Transfusion Service on Thursday 2nd of April. An encouraging number of Calamatta Cuschieri’s staff donated blood, staff members from Camilleri Preziosi Advocates and the general public also joined in this initiative. The campaign forms part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, which aim to give back to the community as well as help people in need. Mr. Alan Cuschieri, Co-CEO at Calamatta Cuschieri said “Approximately 60 units of blood are needed on a daily basis, thus every volunteer counts. Calamatta Cuschieri firmly believes in the importance of CSR and the company will be expanding on other initiatives such as the Investing in Nature Campaign and the Walk for Cancer campaign.” A normal blood donation gives one unit of blood and people who have suffered great blood loss, may require about 50 units. Thus one or two serious accidents are often enough to drain blood stocks and this confirms the great importance of having satisfactory blood stocks at all times.
