Joan’s Birthday Gift to the poor of Los Alcazares

On Tuesday 2nd Feb. Joan Mitchell, the Office Manager of HELP Murcia Mar Menor held her 80th birthday lunch at the Tataki restaurant in Los Alcazares with 25 of her friends as her guests. Having decided that she did not want any presents from her friends, Joan asked them to bring a bag of food each instead which would be donated to the poor of the area and the response was great.

The food collected was handed over to Joanne Scott from the Council in Los Alcazares who will ensure that it reaches the poor and needy of the area. Many of those attending the lunch were HELP Members and were pleased that they were able to help others in need. The local council and HELP are building up a good relationship which is hoped will be of benefit to all and help with the integration between Expats and the local Spanish population.
