I am Bernard Ash, happily living in Spain and along with my partner, Janice Clark, we are involved in raising money for DEBRA, The Butterfly Children Charity, mainly in the Mar Menor area.
The charity has shops in San Fulgencio and Rojales.
Our website www.pieldemariposa.es explains the condition these children suffer and outlines what the fund raising is used for.
On the 14th/15th April we are holding a Mar Menor Charity Walk:
Distance – 60km, but walkers can do any distance between 5-60kms
Location – Lo Pagan KM 19 La Manga
Route – Around The Mar Menor
Target – Try to raise €5,000 to fund Medical Care & Research.
There is no entry fee, but each walker has a donation form to hopefully raise a minimum of €50 each.
We are producing a Wall Chart featuring photos of the walk and are asking businesses to sponsor for a fee of only €50. We hope to produce 5 Wall Charts for 5 areas of the Mar Menor.
We are looking for a Main Sponsor to feature on all 5 charts and receive prominence.
We have over 50 walkers at present, including 3 who will do the whole 60kms in one day (see photo). This is a Fun Walk, so let’s hope that Phil, Sheena and Ian will still be laughing at the end of their 60kms, Putting Their Best Foot Forward ForThe Butterfly Children. 10 other walkers will do the 60kms over 2 days and the rest 5-25kms on the Sunday.
We would like more walkers, more business sponsors and of course people willing to donate to this worthwhile charity.
As they say at DEBRA, ‘your help gives us wings’.
