THE Elche Children’s Home has kick started 2016 with a generous influx of donations from supporters and fundraisers.
The Friday Weigh-In Ladies met with Annette English at Casa Mia in El Chapparal, where group leader Caroline Richardson presented Annette with over €150 in cash as well as €220 in Primark gift vouchers, and lots of other goodies the ladies had collected for the children.
Some ladies from Entre Naranjas who held a fun day in the Alegria Tapas bar also met with Annette and handed over €1,175, and Elaine Madigen handed over €74 on behalf of the Velvetones.
Annette said: “I was bowled over by these wonderful acts of kindness so on behalf of the charity thank you all. I know you all worked very hard to raise these funds and I can assure you that every penny will be spent on our children. When you meet people like this it certainly makes my job worthwhile.”
Thanks also go to Iceland La Marina for their Christmas Appeal collecting all sorts of extra goodies and treats for the children and to Doing Your Head In Hairdressers in La Marina who made his shop a drop off point for the charity.
