Barclays bank on Gibraltar’s Main Street is hosting a week of fundraising activities this coming week in order to raise money for a number of charities.
The Gibraltar branch have opted to take part in this fundraiser as part of Barclays banks aim to raise £50,000 in just one week across Europe.

I came across this great video footage of Austrailian comedians Hamish and Andy attempting to reach Africa from Gibraltar using only their aqua trike.
This comedy duo have shot a very funny film, a must see.
Europe and Africa are separated by 7.7 nautical miles (14.3 km; 8.9 mi) of ocean at the strait’s narrowest point.
After 8 gruelling hours watch the clip to see whether or not they succeed.

Another tilt-shift film by Joerg Daiber. This time he has shot a cheeky little number all about the rock of Gibraltar.
It shows great video footage of the airport and border from an aerial view.
In this short 3 min film he manages to give us a fantastic overall package of a day out visiting the Rock.
As with a lot of visitors, he found it bizarre eating good old British fish and chips in the balmy climate that is Gibraltar.
Please click the photo below to watch Joerg’s great little film. Love the accompanying music.

The Gibraltar Mini Dash July 14th 2012 was another great success.
Thanks to Dino Chincotta and his team, in excess of 20 Minis entered.
Please look at the official facebook page for photos and comments from the people who came on down and had a great day on The Rock.
After the success of Monmouth becoming the 1st Wikipedia town in the United kingdom, Gibraltar is to become the 1st Wikipedia city. GibraltapediA is aiming high. It will be the first time a whole city has been embraced in this way.
This means that there will be Wikipedia pages describing all the different tourist attraction and places of interest around the rock.
This will be fantastic for Gibraltar. Visitors to the rock will be able to use their mobile devices such as iPhones, smart phones and iPads to look up all the historical facts regarding the places they are seeing in their own native language.
QrPedia codes will be used to enable this. The QrPedia codes sense the language that your mobile devices are set to.
All landmarks and places of interest, for example St Michael’s Cave, will have a Qr code for you to scan and obtain all the relevant information regarding its history.
Absolutely amazing news for Gibraltar that is said to receive anything from 6 million to 9.5 million visitors a year.
Gibraltar is such a historical place that these Qr codes will be invaluable for visitors wanting to gain knowledge without going on an official tour. They will be able to learn so much simply by using their phone!
