THIS week Tom Tar, Vice President for Age Care Association and Lesley Berridge, Welfare Officer of Calahonda donated €1000 from Age Care’s yearly donations to Myra enabling the Citizen Advice Bureau to obtain a new car to help them continue with their incredible work in Spain.
Myra Azzopardi the founder of Citizen Advice Bureau was asked in 1995 to set out a list detailing the type of problems that the non-Spanish community and visitors were experiencing whilst in Spain.
Assisting a group of interested people, the first office for foreigners was eventually set up in Estepona by the then newly elected Government.
As a result of a demand for a more extensive service concluded with Myra setting up the Costa Advice Bureau in 2006.
During the following years, it became apparent that the expatriate community needed a place and persons to whom they could turn to for support.
With this in mind a project to set up a group for the expatriate residents, non-residents and visitors alike, in need of advice, assistance, and accurate information. This and more, they can now find at the Citizens Advice Bureau Spain.
