YET again the annual Big Mac fundraiser for the MACS Mojacar Area Cancer Support association was a storming success.
Hundreds flocked to the Turre venue on Sunday afternoon to enjoy a brilliant line-up of live music and to raise money for the charity, which provides invaluable assistance for cancer patients, survivors and carers across the region.
A line-up of the some of the best bands and singers from the local music scene kept the crowds entertained from midday until well into the evening. Main stage acts ran from Abba tributes and crooners belting out classic tunes to the beats of The All Skas, while down on the acoustic stage there was a more folky vibe with sets from bands like the Filabres Mountain Devils and The Happy Pluckers.
The blue skies and warm weather helped ensure brisk trade on the stalls selling hand-made crafts, vintage clothes, jewellery, and more, and there were plenty of people tucking into the festival-style grub and enjoying the sunshine and the great atmosphere.
“It’s been an absolutely amazing turnout once again. In fact I think we underestimated how many people would turn up and there are more people here than last year. We couldn’t ask for more”, MACS Vice-President Shannon Edwards told the Euro Weekly News on the day.
“Obviously we are so grateful for the continued support”, Shannon added.
“And now it’s been six years, so it’s great to know that this event has continued to be so successful and grow.”
