Last month we informed our supporters of the closure of our Mazarrón shop. Our last Aid Day in Mazarron was on 31st May and in Cañada de Gallego will be on 7th June.
This is when our Out-Reach Coordinator Jennifer Tanton bids her farewell to the charity for whom her enthusiasm and determination, as well as her compassion for the families we help, has contributed enormously in making the charity the successful and revered body within the Spanish community it is today. We wish her all the best in whatever she does. We also thank Mrs Janet McGuire and Mrs Debbie O’Neill for their dedication in their capacity as President and Treasurer over the past few years.
A meeting was held last month to vote in the new President and Treasurer. They are Mrs Anne Blandford and Mr Ray Jose respectively. Mrs Anne Bennett will remain as Secretary and Mr Martin Lawford will administer our Face Book page.
At present our Puerto de Mazarrón shop is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10am-1.30pm. Whilst we have been restructuring and clearing our Mazarrón shop, the days we opened last month were interrupted. We apologize if this inconvenienced some of our supporters, but we should be back to normal as from this month. We are appealing for more volunteers to enable us to open more days, so if you think you could spare a few hours per week please contact Christine on 634 321 161 or visit our shop which is situated on the corner of Calle Sierra Espuña and Calle Carrascoy in Puerto de Mazarrón. It can be reached (coming from Bolnuevo) by taking the first left turn after the Wok Buffet and then it’s about 500mtrs on the left hand side. From Mazarrón, at El Arbol roundabout take the Via Axial towards Bahia and turn left just before the garden centre, then second left and it’s 500mtrs on the right.
We will still continue to support all the families we have previously helped with clothing, furniture and other essential items they require and with donated food items, but the monthly Food Aid Days will cease.
We trust that our supporters will continue to help our hardworking and dedicated team to continue in our aim to support those less fortunate in our area.
We still have our dedicated team of van drivers, but for the present please call Christine on the previous number above if you have any large items or furniture you wish to donate to us.
Telephone number for our President is 634 345 085

We wish to thank all the past volunteers who have given their time and effort enabling us to make a difference within the local communities of this area. Many thanks to you all.
