FIFTEEN HUNDRED pairs of prescription spectacles will be sent worldwide to help populations in desperate need of clear vision.

Thanks to Specscavers of Calpe and Javea and also the Lions Club of Calpe and Benissa, the spectacles are on their way to the Melvin Jones Recycling Centre in San Vicente del Raspeig.  From here they will be graded and dispatched to Africa, Asia, South America and parts of Europe.

“And don’t forget to visit the Lions Charity Shop which is open from 10am until 1pm, Monday to Saturday, in Calle Pintor Sorolla in Calpe to pick up a bargain,” the Lions’ Carolyn Mills reminded readers.


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 cost.

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.
