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 Saturday 10th March 2018 we threw open our doors for all our volunteers and many local people to come and see where the offices and donated furniture showroom are located.
Amongst the 60 people who attended were: Elizabeth Bell, from the British Consulate, Sofia Alvarez the councillor for Extranjeros ( Foreigners) in Orihuela Costa, and representatives of various other local charities
They enjoyed some light refreshments and the opportunity to talk to our president Carmen Perez, and meet other Help at Home Costa Blanca volunteers.
The sun was shining and we are delighted to say the comments we received were very positive.
The offices and shop will go from strength to strength as our volunteers tirelessly give us their time to help people in need in our community.
