Local rugby player starts fundraiser to pay for career shaping shoulder operation

Local rugby player starts fundraiser to pay for career shaping shoulder operation
Aug 17 2021 Share

Local rugby player Liam Scicluna, a.k.a Babaw, has opened a GoGetFunding page to raise money to pay for a shoulder operation which is crucial for him to achieve his athletic dream of representing Malta. In the fundraiser’s description he describes how following his first session four years ago, he was hooked onto the sport and did not stop since. His ultimate goal is to continue his journey as a Maltese national player and to be ‘part of the Malta Sevens squad for the 2023 Small Nations’ games.

He revealed how he was on the right track, but had to take a step back due to a shoulder injury which resulted in the tearing of the supraspinatus tendon along with a suspected capsular tear. Surveying all his options, the operation is the only thing that can get Scicluna back onto his path. As the waiting list for the operation is around three years, he is attempting to secure a private operation in order to return to the field quicker.

The quote for such an operation totalled around €4500. He acknowledged how it is a lot of money for any one individual and so decided to call on the public for help. His friends, family and club have all pitched in already, with the remaining input, he hopes, to come from the public. ‘Whatever you can give would be amazing and very much appreciated – no matter how small!’ he stated. As of writing this article, the fundraiser racked up €650.00. 

You can donate to Liam’s fundraiser here.

Aug 17 2021 Share

Facebook forecaster The Weather Page Malta released a post last night warning about incoming weather, which is set to be very strong winds which could make swimming dangerous. The post recommended no swimming and no diving in areas ‘exposed to the Northwest wind from tomorrow Tuesday afternoon till Thursday morning.’ 

Wind gusts are set to reach up to Force 5-6, or even 7. The post listed several popular beaches often frequented by families and tourists to avoid. These included the likes of Paradise Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha, Sliema, Armier, Comino and Cirkewwa. 

The page also highlighted how this note is ‘in no way issued and done to cause any alarm but intended to raise awareness to be more cautious and also to avoid what usually happens on windy days (especially in summer) when we take it for granted’. The Malta International Airport also emphasised the strong winds, particularly on Wednesday as temperatures fluctuate between 33 and 36 degrees Celsius.
