Christmas For our clients in need

Happy Boxing day

We hope you all enjoyed your Christmas day yesterday and as a local Charity we are very aware there are many who do not have the resources to enjoy a Christmas meal or the little treats we associate with this time of year.

So on Christmas Eve our President Carmen and Chief Welfare Officer Sheila delivered some food essentials with a few goodies for some our clients in need.
We are so thankful and recognise that we could not do this with out our volunteers time and supporters donations and thank every one of you with all our hearts.

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.

Help at Home will have “Guess the weight of the Christmas Cake ”

and , name the “Christmas Lion ” and many stalls will have Festive arts and crafts.
Hope to see you there ! Lucy

Donated defibrillator saves life !

We cannot express how proud we are of the efforts of our volunteers and our supporters who helped us raise over 10,000€ to purchase 7 defibrillators for the local community.

We were contacted by the local police force who told us one of the 5 defibrillators we donated to the Orihuela Costa Police cars -was used by the local police the other day to save a man’s life.

The incident was the first where these life saving machine were put to the test.

The police were trained by the Red Cross to operate the device which Help at Home donated to them.

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.
