During December we have been delighted to be in a position to support various charities within the Vega Baja area. This time of year is difficult for many, particularly for those who struggle throughout the year financially to support their families. The HELP committee therefore decided to offer four charities that provide food to families in need a donation of 2,000 euros each. These donations were given to Alimentos Solidarios in Torrevieja, Social Services in Benijofar (following an appeal launched by the Spiritualist Church, Benijofar),San Miguel Banco de Alimentos and the town hall in Montesinos. The money will be used to help provide food throughout the year and in particular some fresh food such as meat and fish over the christmas period. In the case of Benijofar, some of the money was put aside to ensure that children from the families will also each receive a christmas present.
Volunteers have visited three of the charities so far and our President, Michele Masson said "it has been wonderful to see the work that is carried out, in many cases by volunteers to ensure that food is available for those in real need. We hope that the donations we have given go some way to helping and would like to thank all of our members and supporters who have helped throughout the year in various ways to raise funds which has in turn allowed us to help others in the Vega Baja area. Thank you to each and every one of you and please be assured that your help will mean that many families will have a much better christmas than they may otherwise have had".
