A Busy Week For HELP MMM – Helping Others.
On Monday 21st September, HELP Office Manager, Joan Mitchell, presented local charity worker Celia Drinkall of ADAPT with a cheque for €3,000 to be used to support local charity El Samaritano (San Pedro) which looks after families in the area who are in dire need of help, especially during the present pandemic. Even though El Samaritano has received regular food donations from ADAPT, due to problems raising money from donations during the past six months of lockdown and the cancellation of fund raising events, funds held by ADAPT for El Samaritano had just about been exhausted so this donation from HELP was ‘Heaven Sent’.
On Thursday 24th September it was the turn of HELP’s President, Christine Baillie, to present Donna Walsh, Publicity Officer and fund raiser for the cancer charity MABS with a cheque, again for €3,000. As with other charities, MABS has struggled over the past months during the COVID restrictions to raise funds in the normal way and has had to cancel planned events including their annual Party in the Park which would normally provide a large portion of their fund raising for the year. Coming after two floods at their shop, it has become increasingly difficult to provide their normal services including their hospice.
HELP Murcia Mar Menor has been pleased to support other local charities this year, from funds raised by its volunteers during 2019. It is the charity’s policy to help others in the Murcia region in times of need.
