HAHCB donated 50% Red Cross Ambulance
We welcomed the new Red Cross ambulance to this area and the Emerald Isle provided the bubbly those who attended .
The major of Orihuela attended and the Director of the Red Cross many volunteers and the generosity of the local residents and visitors to our wonderful part of Spain makes us feel eternally grateful.
A big thank you to Kathleen Vahey’s Family who came over from Ireland to be with us today.
The enourmous gratitude we feel for our volunteers and supporters who helped us achieve this fantastic result- we thank you all.
Since 2017 we started on a mission to make a tribute to Kathleen Vahey whom we sadly lost to an illness. In her memory we raised funds to purchase a mobility vehicle to help assist local people to appointments with the doctor or visit the clinic. The logistics proved to be too difficult so as a compromise we contacted the Red Cross and we donated 31,000EUR to them towards a new ambulance.
On 2nd April 2019 at 14.00 we all gathered at The Emerald Isle who have long been our supporters in our fund raising efforts.- to receive the first inspection of the new ambulance.
Sylvia our fund raiser also sold tombola and raffle prizes and we did name the soft toy Husky dog to raise money for more worthy causes.
Some happy memories below:-
