LAST YEAR 2014
We had a variety of different events starting in March with ‘A Journey Through Time’. A classical music evening held and organised by the Marriott Hotel in Denia - a highly successful evening.
Fun filled and entertaining Quiz evenings in April and September in Moraira and Benidoleig organised by Malcolm and Jean Bunn.
An unusual and different kind of sponsored walk in May, organised by Andy Crabbe – 20 km in total starting from Jesus Pobre via Denia and ending in Els Poblets. The turnout was not enormous but we raised a goodly sum.
The HELP of Denia Annual Charity Golf Competition was held at Oliva Nova Golf Course in June. We had a full house with over 100 golfers and approximately 120 for lunch. We managed to attract Sponsors for all of the 18th holes and also in the vicinity of the Club House. We did, in addition, run a successful raffle. Amongst the prizes donated were a round of golf for two people at La Sella followed by a meal in the Marriott Hotel and complementary golf for four at Oliva Nova.
In August, HELP of Denia and Marina Alta celebrated their 30th anniversary with a Grand Summer Ball at the Parador Hotel, Javea. Guests were greeted with Spanish classical guitar musical in the grounds of the hotel, whilst being served with champagne and tapas. During the dinner there was a flamenco show and Rob Sweeney provided the music to dance the night away.
