MOJACAR locals had a memorable experience when they travelled to Seville to make up part of the studio audience for the popular Canal Sur TV magazine programme ‘La Tarde, Aqui y Ahora.
Third Age councillor Ana Garcia had managed to secure an invitation for members of the Mojacar senior citizen association after they told her how much they would like to take part.
It took a fair bit of time to get it sorted the council reported as so many municipalities from across Andalucia apply to be there to see well-known TV personality Juan y Medio present the live mix of news, entertainment and music along with some senior citizen matchmaking.
The 46-strong Mojacar bunch, plus Ana Garcia, said it was all great fun, especially to meet Almeria-born Juan y Medio in the flesh.
He knows Mojacar well he told them, having visited on a number of occasions.
The senior citizens took the opportunity to make an important contribution to the programme’s food bank campaign, taking with them 120 kilos of non-perishable foodstuffs. They also took with them a taste of Mojacar, providing home-baked bread, cakes, biscuits and muffins and cold meats for the afternoon snack featured on the show.
Ana Garcia commented particularly on the “warm welcome” they had received from the whole programme team, who made it such an unforgettable day for them all.
