Over BGN 33,000 of corporate donations were raised at a fundraising football match between the teams of the diplomatic corps in Bulgaria and the Interior Ministry on Friday. The money was raised in aid of eighty-six children of law enforcement officials, who died in exercise of their official duties. The team of the Interior Ministry won over the team of the diplomats. The match was under the patronage of Sweden’s Ambassador Sten Ask and the Chief Secretary with the Interior Ministry Gen. Boyko Borisov. Greek Ambassador H.E Michael Christidis, Croatian Ambassador Tonci Stanicic were on the international team together with officials from the German Embassy, US Embassy, Spanish Embassy, Swedish Embassy, the Algerian Embassy, the Embassy of Morocco. On the Bulgarian team were Sofia Mayor Sofianski, former Interior Minister Emanuil Dimitrov, floor leader Plamen Panayotov and representatives of the Bulgarian Interior Ministry. Sweden’s Ambassador in Bulgaria H.E. Sten Ask was captain of the diplomatic corps team while General Borissov headed the Interior Ministry team. Born spontaneously in a conversation between the two of them, hopes are pinned on this charity act to turn into a long-lasting tradition. Many international, Bulgarian companies and banks as well as some 250 people made donations at the event.
