Order of Malta Australia


Movie Night raises funds for the Adelaide Day Centre & the Australian Salesian Mission Overseas Aid Fund


The South Australian branch of the Order of Malta ran a film fundraiser in October which raised a total of $7,857.50.

425 people purchased tickets to attend the fundraiser that featured a film called “Argo”, which just prior to the event received excellent reviews.

The branch will bring the total funds up to $8,000 and will distribute the funds equally between the Adelaide Day Centre for homeless persons and The Salesian Missions in East Timor.

The Adelaide branch of the Order have been big supporters of the Adelaide Day Centre for homeless persons and the Centre is most appreciative of the donations the Order provides.  The $4,000 will be used to put together Christmas hampers for needy people and contribute towards upgrading the kitchen facilities at the garden project.

Brother Michael Lynch at the Salesian Missions in Victoria is the grateful contact person for the Australian Salesian Mission Overseas Aid Fund which will also receive $4,000 from this fundraising event.  The branch again has previously raised funds for their activities which have been used to assist the works of the Salesian Sisters’ Medical Clinic, Venilale and the Don Bosco Orphanage, Lospalos.
