PN leadership hopeful Bernard Grech has launched an online crowd-funding campaign as he aims to raise money for his campaign.

The campaign, launched on Thursday at 11am, had already attracted some 4,000 in donations from 80 backers just over an hour after its launch.

In a video on the fundraising platform, Grech said that people “have a chance to use a legitimate digital platform to donate a small amount of money, with the option of remaining anonymous, so you can be free to help our campaign and make sure our message reaches everyone.”

Donors can donate between 1 and 250, and the campaign target is set at 50,000.

Whatever is left-over from the funds received once the campaign is over, Grech said, will be donated to the PN regardless of whether he emerges victorious from the election or not.

A spokesperson for Grech told this newsroom that once the campaign is over, a full audit of all the donations received will be carried out and published.

Grech will not be accepting any donations which are not through this crowd-funding platform.
