A new Banif Sports and Social Committee means new ideas, new experiences and certainly lots of new adventures for the Banif team!
Every year, an internal election is held to choose members for the Banif Sports and Social Committee, responsible for planning and executing social events for the Banif team, family and friends throughout the year. Activities are always very varied, from sports and adventure to culture, social or philanthropic, with the highlights being the eagerly anticipated summer, Christmas and children’s parties. This year’s committee is comprised of six employees from different departments around the Bank – Christian Attard, Patrick Bartolo, Noemi Cavallaro, Karl Dingli, Adrian Spiteri and Ann Marie Zammit.
The calendar of events kicked off with a private walking tour around the quaint alleyways of Rabat and Mdina. Ticking off many cultural and educational boxes, the tour gave the Banif team and guests an insight into the history and architecture of the storied locations. The walk took them by many palazzos and the old stores known as Magazzini before proceeding through Greek’s gate for nibbles and drinks at Palazzo de Piro.
“Events like this are a great way for the team to get together and share new experiences in a different environment,” said Adrian Spiteri, a member of this year’s Committee. “Being part of the Committee also means that we get a taste of things like event planning, logistics and public relations which we would not as part of our usual duties. We have met up a couple of times already now and we are glad to say that we have some fantastic teambuilding events lined up for our colleagues this year!”
