3rd July Fashion show & Red Cross Cheque

Help at Home Volunteers led by Sylvia ( Fundraiser) and Esther ( Playa Flamenca shop manager) spent many hours contacting , restaurants, shops and bars for donations for our raffle prizes helping to raise funds for the 5 defibrillators for our local first response teams.

Teams of volunteers worked tirelessly sorting  out all the clothes, packing up and loading the van , delivering the clothes, the rails, tables  and many items for to the Emerald isle for this big event for us.

Clothes were looked out from the Charity Shop, washed and ironed and many volunteers gave up their day and modelled the clothes for us.

The Director from Red Cross and many of his team travelled from Alicante to receive the cheque for 31,000Euros. We all raised a glass of bubbly to celebrate this magnificent achievement.

Our  Charity with support from the local businesses, local residents and holiday makers donated to this excellent cause , the money was raised over 2 years from 2016-2018 with many fund raising events organised towards the cost of a new ambulance for the community ( costs 60,000 Euros).

The ambulance will have in memory of Kathleen Vahey one of our fund raising volunteers whom we sadly lost a in 2016  who worked tirelessly to help other here in Spain and further afield a true Angel on Earth.

The Cheque Presentation 31,000 Euros.
