HELP Helping The Needy
HELP Murcia Mar Menor held a charity lunch on Thursday 4th February at Galindas Restaurant La Puebla, near Torre Pacheco. This was the second year that the charity has held this event and this year it was bigger and better than ever.
Once again each guest was asked to donate 5kg of non-perishable food to help families in need in the village. A total of 92 people attended the lunch from HELP MMM, NOSMO, HELP Friendship Group and representatives from the local Caritas group. A massive 700kg of food was donated and this will go to help feed 50 plus families in the village.
It was explained by Janneke Chambers, a resident of La Puebla and member of HELP MMM that these people have no work, are unable to claim any money from the State and receive very little help from the Government. “This donation of food will go some way to easing their plight for a short time” she said.
Rosalia Sanz gave a short speech of acceptance on behalf of Caritas to express their gratitude for the donation and then presented Doreen Sykes, head fundraiser of HELP MMM, with a statuette as a memento of the day.
