We are so grateful for all the support from the local community.
So when Joan and Jacky from Quesada told us about this 200 Euro donation , we had to tell everyone.
Attached is a photo of Jacky and Joan ( on left ) being presented with 200€ from the Rojales Pantomime Group who presented Ali Baba last January.
The presentation is being made by the president Mike Smith with Christine Smith, the treasurer, looking on
The evening finally arrived with a bang !
The tables were set, the band were tuning up, the Raffle prizes on display ,the food all cooked and ready to be served ,so after lots of organising by our fundraiser Sylvia and her fundraising team Saturday 21st April Campoverde Reef band Dinner Dance arrive to help us raise funds for folk who need our help in the local community.
The restaurant El Nacional was full to the brim with people ,eating good food, having fun, dancing and enjoying some great music.
We had many great donations for our Raffle and auction and managed to raise a wonderful amount of 1,055Euro which will go towards caring for our existing clients and new ones who join us on a regular basis.
We also presented a meal for two to Angela and John Hynd who have worked with us looking after clients since the Charity was formed many years ago as we bade them farewell in their new venture in the UK.

On Monday we supported a truly amazing appeal for a young lady who needs to get treatment that only America can provide.
The local Community here in Orihuela Costa has been supporting the ‘Tasha Appeal’ since the 24 year old was struck down by four separate life threatening conditions. Tasha’s father, Andy Lynch, is desperately trying to raise over €200,000 to get Tasha to the US for specialist treatment for her rare mitochondrial disease
Over the last 2 years Tasha’s life has been devastated by these rare life changing illnesses – the mitochondrial being the primary disease but complicated by other rare secondary illnesses. She has gone from being the life and soul of the community, to fighting the biggest battle anyone of us could ever face – the battle for life.
Since her diagnosis the family has discovered information from a research hospital in America about a treatment of specialist tailored medication that could improve quality of life and possibly extend Tasha’s life expectancy. However, due to the treatment being tailor made for the patient, it is very expensive.
The disease has struck Tasha in such a devastating way that she is currently paralysed from the waist down, unable to breathe unaided and relies on a ventilator and tracheotomy, 24 hours a day. She is unable to swallow, and is fed through a tube. Blind in her left eye and light sensitive in her right eye, Tasha is even unable to support her own head unaided. But with your help, she could possibly be given a new, better and longer life.
