Radiomarathon 2014 raised €631,000

Last year’s Radiomarathon charity drive collected €631,000, the Bank of Cyprus said on Friday.

The money has been deposited with the charity’s management committee, which has the sole responsibility of deciding to which children it should help.

“The success of the 2014 Radiomarathon is particularly important given the difficult economic conditions under which it was carried out, the bank said.

Last year was the 25th annual Radiomarathon. It normally takes place in October or November.

The charity collects donations primarily for children with special needs.

The Bank of Cyprus undertook to organise the annual charity event upon the demise of its original backers, the now-defunct Laiki Bank.
