Murder Mystery Wedding raised 1,000€

What a wonderful event this was for Help at Home Costa Blanca, we all gathered at Drivers bar in Villamartin for an evening of fun , laughter and intrigue on Monday 17th June 2019

During the wedding meal one of the wedding guests clutched at her throat and collapsed to be pronounced dead at the scene.

Who was the culprit?. The local policeman came to investigate and many of the guests asked questions to which the top table could only reply YES or NO !!

After a thorough investigation and everyone who attended the wedding had tried to solve this mystery a guests found a note in the murder lady’s bag. She had poisoned herself ! One guests was correct and won the prize.

It was so much fun and Barry the Groom’s Dad, made everyone laugh so much.

Once all the money from the auction and raffle and ticket sales was counted we had raised 1,000Euro for Adiem the House they are extending, we are helping to raise 10,000 Euro toward the 18,000Euro they need for their extension for people with mental health problems in our community.
