THE Anglican Chaplaincy on the Costa Blanca is making an appeal for unwanted or broken gold or silver jewelry.

Jewellery placed in the boxes displayed in charity shops, hairdressers and other establishments during the Dig Deep and Give Us a Ring can then be exchanged for cash that will assist with the cost of maintaining the Chaplaincy.

The Anglican Chaplaincy of the Holy Spirit comprises seven Costa Blanca churches in Gandia, Denia, Javea, La Fustera, Calpe, Albir and Campello that are completely self-funding.  Like so many charities, they have suffered financially during the pandemic.


Senior Chaplain Fr Marcus Ronchetti along with Fr Jim Booker and Fr Rodney Middleton ensure that parishioners receive everything they would expect in a normal Church of England parish, both spiritually and pastorally, including weddings, blessings and funerals.

More information is available on the www.costablanca-anglicanchaplaincy.org website, while Lin Bentley or Sally Cressey, Calpe (local wardens) at [email protected] or [email protected] will provide further details of the Dig Deep and Give Us a Ring appeal.

The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite residents in Spain with family and friends by capping the cost of PCR tests for travel. Please help us to urge the UK government to cap the costs.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
