FUEL company Petrolina has announced the launch of its first ‘social contribution festival’, aimed at reinforcing and supporting the community market of Larnaca. The festival will take place this Sunday at Europe Square in Larnaca from 3pm until 9pm.
The main goal of the festival is to collect essential supplies, food and school items. The event is within the framework of the year-long campaign by PETROLINA, “Fill up with Love”, aimed at financially reinforcing the community markets of five municipalities with the amount of €100,000.
From June until today, €32,000 has been donated in total to the markets which supply free groceries to the needy.
The festival programme includes live music, plenty of games for children and adults, food, competitions, gifts and surprises. The musical programme will be presented by Christiana Aristotelous and George Rousos, while Nicos Evangelou and the Children’s Choir of the Larnaca Municipality will be performing without a fee as will the Pheadra Karavokyri Zeniou Ballet and Jazz School, the actress Monica Melekki, Skala Theatre, and singers Vera Boufi and Marios Koumas.
Petrolina’s public relations head Georgia Lefkariti said: “Petrolina continues to support Cypriot society, adjusting its social contribution in accordance with the citizens’ changing needs.”
She added: “Through the festival, Petrolina sends messages of hope and optimism. Once again Cypriots, with humanity and solidarity, will manage to overcome these difficult times.”
Lefkariti warmly thanked the Petrolina staff and petrol station owners, their families and children who make up the company’s team of volunteers, for their participation in the festival. She also thanked Larnaca Municipality and other organisations that support the event; especially Green-Dot Cyprus, PPT Aviation Services Ltd, Pizza Hut and Pepsi.
