HELP MMM Gives To The Red Cross

On Thursday 24th May at the HELP office in Los Alcazares HELP’s President Christine Baillie presented a cheque for €3,000 to Snr Antonio Tarraga Zapata, Director of Caritas San Pedro and Snr Antonio Lopez Moreno who work with the Red Cross are supporting those in need in the San Pedro area.

Many of the hotels and supermarkets in the San Pedro area have large quantities of fresh food left at the end of the working day and they are quite willing to donate this food to the Red Cross rather than it going to landfill sites.

The money will go a long way towards purchasing an industrial size cold cabinet so that the Red Cross can collect and store this food overnight ready to be given to those in need the following day.

This donation of money raised by the volunteers of HELP Murcia Mar Menor during 2017 from their outlet and car boot sales is the third to have been made this year making a total so far of €9,000 given to Charities in the Mar Menor area.

HELP Celebrates The Royal Wedding

It might have been six days after the actual event, but that did not stop members of HELP Murcia Mar Menor and friends from celebrating the wedding of Harry and Meghan. Many ladies sported tiaras and red, white and blue were the colours of the day.

The venue was Bacchus Restaurant in the Oasis Centre at Los Alcazares and the host Helene Afrldt Jurborn and her staff put on a great afternoon tea with freshly made cakes and sandwiches. For some, tea was replaced with cava and glasses were raised to toast the Royal couple and wish them the best of luck for the future.

Diego the posh bear with his bottle of cava was won by Janneke Chambers, a long-standing member of HELP, having had his name picked from 50 by Helene and raising €35 for the Charity at the same time.

HELP holds a social event every month, which is open to all. For more information about HELP or its events contact our office in Los Alcazares on 968 570 059
