Nicosia, Oct 26 (CNA) -- Contributions to the annual children’s charity ''Radiomarathon'' reached 1,5 million Cyprus pounds as the charity event closed at midnight.

Last year's contributions during the 48-hour event totaled 1,35 million Cyprus pounds (one Cyprus pound trades at about 2 US dollars).

''Radiomarathon'' is organised by the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation and the Popular Bank Group.

A total of 53 kiosks were set up and 12 piggy-bank cars toured the island to collect funds for two days. Similar events were also organised in various countries where there is a Cypriot community.
