On 19 April we had a very successful Quiz at Los Leones in Moraira, which we intend to repeat later in the year at El Cid restaurant in Benidoleig (see below).
Careline Theatre preformed the excellent ‘Murder in Company’ in the Careline theatre in Alcalali on 9th May with all proceeds of the evening going to HELP. A very amusing evening and a cheque for €1,300 was presented to our President on the night.
On 18 May A Fun Day was arranged by the bowlers at Inn on the Green in Benitachell which not only provided a good day for everyone and half the funds (over €1,000) were given to HELP
30 June – the HELP of Denia and Marina Alta Charity Golf Match was held at Oliva Nova Golf Course. It was an excellent day with 108 golfers participating and 140 people for lunch. We succeeded in raising approximately €3.500 for our charity which could not have been achieved without the generous support of our sponsors and helpers.
1st September HELP had an information Stand at the Multicultural Fair in Calpe arranged by Women in Business Spain and the Calpe Town Hall. Visitors enjoyed a day of live and varied entertainment as well as viewing local crafts and stalls. Funds were raised for local charities, including victims of domestic violence.
Also in September we had a sponsored walk along the Montgo organized by Mary Sears. 48 walkers gathered at the picnic ground at Cabo de San Antonio for a 15 km trek along the coast with its magnificent views and included a visit to the windmills, some of which are now inhabited. The group included HELP members, U3A members, supporters and friends and even some holiday makers. On the day €612 was raised.
In October we held another quiz night which included a meal, bingo, raffle and quiz. It was a good fun evening and raised €479.
On Sunday 3rd November we held the HELP Antiques Road Show Valuation Day at Rui Rau in Jesus Pobre. A number of antiques experts were present to offer valuations on peoples antiques and collectables. The regular Jesus Pobre antique market was held at the same time, with the Farmers Market nearby. Another fun day.
