THE PAWS-PATAS animal charity annual Christmas Fayre was a resounding success.
Within half an hour of the fayre officially opening on what was a warm sunny Sunday morning, the event venue, the Plaza Estrella del Cantal in Mojacar, was packed with people enjoying the jolly atmosphere
There was an amazing array of items on sale, including hand-made jewellery, ornaments, garments, cards and toys. Musical entertainment was provided by The Sue Moretta Choir, who performed a selection of contemporary and Christmas songs. Folk were still arriving an hour before the 3pm closure and keen to buy a raffle ticket in the hope of winning one of the many delightful prizes.
Monies raised from the donated entry fee, raffle and stall holders totalled €2,137 euros. From this amount, €370 raised by the cat team will go towards their neutering campaign. The remainder will go towards building the much needed quarantine unit at the PAWS-PATAS shelter.
On Saturday December 14, Iceland (Oversea) stores throughout Spain are raising money for various charities. The Vera branch has chosen PAWS-PATAS. There will be helpers all day packing the customers’ many bags of Christmas goody provisions, plus a tombola and lots of information about the animal charity.
PAWS-PATAS is always in need of extra voluntary help, either in one of the charity’s four outlets or caring for the animals, fostering or helping with administration and fundraising.
