CANCER sufferer Maria Wilson and her team of Pink Ladies presented a cheque to the President of the provincial AECC last week at an event that was attended by more than 100 people.
The money that was donated to the cancer charity is as a direct result of the Maria and the Pink Ladies 5km Walk that took place in Orihuela Costa on 5th June and other recent fundraising events and the total amount donated was an amazing €19,271.50! In just over a year, Maria and the Pink Ladies have donated €30,854 to the AECC and the President of the Alicante branch of the charity, Pablo Enriquez, was absolutely delighted.
He tearfully thanked Maria and the ladies for all their fundraising efforts and was accompanied by the President of the AECC in Orihuela, Marisol Marco.
The guests at the presentation ceremony, which took place at Fit for All in Punta Prima, were treated to a delicious hot and cold buffet and entertainment from the fabulous Suzy G.
