THE annual solidarity walk took place at the weekend along the promenade of Torrevieja down to La Mata, to raise money for the Elche Children’s Home.
It is the fourth time Lyn and Ken Adams have organised the event for the home and on the day they welcomed a number of children from the centre who also took part in the 4km walk.
On the day over €1,300 was donated from sponsorship but with other monies already pledged, the total amount raised is expected to be around €2,240.
One generous donation came from Bar San Remo in La Siesta where the owners Juan and Michelle, along with their customers, helped to raise €600. The bar was taken over in May and it is the first time they have pledged their support, but staff member Maureen and customers Nadia, John, Silvia and Wendy are regular walkers and all turned up in fancy dress to walk in style as Big Fm, supporters of the children’s home, got the walk under way.
