We have some great news to share with you. We have done it again!!
We have raised a Massive 10,000€ which was our target to help Adiem, so another big thank you to all our volunteers and generous supporters.
Adiem helps people with mental health problems become more independent. They wish to build an extension to extend their premises in Torrevieja which will cost 18,000€ and we said we would raise them 10,000€ towards this and we did !!
At the Christmas Fayre at the Emerald Isle on 10th of December, we will present the BIG cheque for 10,000€ to them for their extension.
Luis from Adiem confirmed the President and members of the executive, as well as volunteers will attend.
So we ask that as many of you attend from 11 until 4pm and buy from the stalls which will have delicious cakes, jams and sauces.
and , name the “Christmas Lion ” and many stalls will have Festive arts and crafts.
Hope to see you there ! Lucy
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:-
