Our fundraising efforts continue at a pace and June saw three wonderful events:
19th June @ The Friendly Bar in Orihuela Costa.
This event featured our Tombola & Name The Teddy and raised a magnificent €421. Our volunteers Les and Denny did a wonderful job on the day, thank you.
19th June @ Brew Rock in Albir.
The event was the brainchild of Charlie Brown who was keen to raise awareness of mental health in Spain as well as raise money for an organisation that is trying to help people cope with their struggles – Samaritans in Spain. He approached Lisa Griffin who is the owner of the Brew Rock who was only too happy to host it. Mario is an entertainer and is very well known for his Boy George tribute act. It was Mario that asked the various artistes if they would be willing to give up their time and perform at the event. There were around 25 acts in total and the event continued into the early hours. The money raised was a truly staggering €3308.43, via a very successful Raffle, the selling of Cakes and a number of Collections that went round throughout the day and evening to which people gave very generously.
28th June @ The Emerald Isle in Orihuela Costa.
This was an event hosted by our Patron, Stevie Spit BEM. It featured our Tombola, Name The Teddy and a new game with the Treasure Map. It was a great afternoon. Thank you to all at The Emerald Isle and our volunteers, Donna and Les, who helped out in raising a wonderful €418.
