IN Javea, Margaret March, president of Comunidad Pinosol, recently met with Javea’s mayor Jose Chulvi to present him with a donation of €3,000 from Comunidad Pinosol residents.
The donation was for the Solidarity Fund set up by the mayor to support the Volunteer Emergency Services following last September’s forest fires, which particularly affected the Pinosol area.
The mayor thanked the residents of Comunidad Pinosol for such a generous donation which he said will be put to good use in replacing equipment and supplies used to fight the fire.
Margaret March said that without the work of the volunteers, and the other emergency services, damage would have been far worse. While most houses and gardens have now been repaired, this has been a stressful few months for everyone living on Pinosol.
Also present was Doris Courselles, councillor for the expat community in Javea.
