CONTINUING HELP: Odd Fellows Costa Blanca present €500 to Alfaz’s Food Bank Photo credit: Alfaz town hall

THE Odd Fellows Costa Blanca association has donated €500 to Alfaz’s Food Bank.

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows is an international organisation that was founded 200 years ago in the UK and has been active in Norway for the last century.

The organisation’s Alfaz branch, whose members are principally Scandinavian and support local charities and social groups, received grateful thanks from Antono Viso, president of the Social Volunteers.


Created in the 2013, Voluntariado Social has around 50 volunteers who run the local Food Bank and attend to the needs of Alfaz residents who are at risk from social exclusion.

The organisation receives support from a long list of collaborators, that begins with the town hall and includes pensioners’ groups, foreign residents’ clubs, schools, charities and local businesses.

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.
