FOR the fourth year, Sol Yoga Centre in Albox has been collecting money for three charities for the needy.

They raised money with healing days where volunteer therapists offered treatments requiring a minimum €5 donation. They also sold second-hand books, unwanted gifts, and summer clothing, while at Christmas there was a bumper raffle with 45 prizes.

In January 2014, the Sol Yoga Centre chose which organisations and causes would benefit, €630 was spent on food parcels for 18 families listed as registered as living under the poverty line in Arboleas. Cecelia Molina Verdu, Arboleas’ pharmacist, is an unofficial distribution point so the goodies were passed to her. Also, almost 50 gifts (two each) were collected for the children of the families through the generosity of those who were given a name and an age to buy for, for example: Nina aged 6. These gifts will be distributed to the children on Kings’ Eve.

The remaining money was split between Age Support Almanzora and Little Owls.
