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.
Some great news for all our volunteers and supporters.
Today we received a note from Tony Mayes one of our volunteers who with his wife Eileen help the Homeless in our area.
Pictured is part of the latest donation of food, clothing, blankets, etc. which have been donated by members of the International Christian Assembly and Help at Home Costa Blanca for the homeless.
Eileen and Tony Mayes yesterday took a car load of items to a group of men living rough on waste land in Orihuela Costa.
The couple’s thanks go out to all church members and charity helpers who have contributed or helped in any way.
We have teamed up with a few other like minded charitable organisations to raise funds to buy 5 defibrillators for our first response teams in Orihuela Costa.
There are 5 police vehicle and we are going to hold fundraising events to supply defibrillators for each car and pay for training by the Red Cross.
The lack of these machine could have contributed to lives that have been lost, so we really think this is a great cause and we need them in our police cars.
The next event is on 2nd June a Beetle Drive at the Sports Bar in Playa Flamenca
Then a Fashion Show planned for 26th June updates will be provided soon.
Please help us raise these funds your support is crucial.
