THE AAN Charity, based in urbanisation La Marina, which supports and helps the needy in the municipality, has bought €2,500 worth of food for distribution this Christmas.
The food has been given to the Office for the Urbanisations where it will be distributed to local families through the Social Services Department. The charity has also bought each child a toy for Christmas.
Since the shop opened in March 2014, AAN has bought about €10,000 worth of food for the needy of San Fulgencio and Urbanisation La Marina.
President Pauline Prior said: “We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this fantastic sum and we hope to continue this next year.”
Samantha Hull from the Office for the Urbanisations said a strict control is kept to ensure that food only goes to those who need it and names of families are never given to the volunteers. She said: “It is fairly evident from the responses of the recipients that these donations are very, very much appreciated and vital.” Samantha added: “This Christmas we have received a huge donation from AAN of which we are so incredibly grateful and countless parcels of food have been donated by people of all nationalities. So many people have donated so much for the needy children this year.
“You can all be assured that this Christmas all of these children will have a huge smile on their faces on Christmas morning thanks to the generosity of all the people of so many nationalities.”
