Boy opens lemonade stand to help dogs at Noah’s Ark sanctuary

Today’s wholesome story involves a young boy opening a lemonade stand to help all the dogs at Noah’s Ark Dog Sanctuary. With the help of Gerbulin residents, Timmy’s lemonade stand was a great success as he collected money to buy food and deliver it to the sanctuary personally. 

The young hero’s mother Barbara posted to Facebook, detailing how Timmy headed over to Paws N Claws to buy the food and fed some of the dogs himself. 

Animal shelters all across Malta have been working hard night-and-day to provide the necessary nourishment and love to all the canines. Small acts such as these, which involved a traditional lemonade stand and a heart of gold, bring joy and help to many – and not just human lives! Well done Timmy!

Gozo Fast Ferry state smoke was caused due to anti-fire system

After an alleged fire broke out on a Gozo Fast Ferry vessel on Monday morning, the source of smoke was revealed to be a technical fault which triggered the boat’s fire suppression system. A plume of smoke exited the vessel ‘Your Faith’ shortly after leaving Mgarr Harbour at 7:45 am. No actual fire was detected on board during the company’s preliminary review of the situation. This prompted a statement which revealed that the smoke was part of the activation of the fire suppression system. 

The company thanked all passengers on board for following the crew’s advice and procedures calmly, leading to a safe evacuation of the vessel. The operator said that the captain followed all internal protocol procedures and initiated a precautionary evacuation to ensure passenger safety. The Civil Protection Department was dispatched to ensure the fire was put out, with the operator apologising for the inconvenience and thanking authorities for their immediate response.
