Costa del Sol Christmas collections
Once again the Costa del Sol Christmas Collections group is helping deserving kiddies with donated goodies. Along the coast many businesses are collecting gifts and holding events to raise money and gather gifts for children that may otherwise go without.
There are more than 300 children on the Costa del Sol who need help. These children are in orphanages or are victims of domestic violence. They’ve had it tough already in their short lives, so these collections can help towards popping a smile on their faces.
Already the Boardwalk in Marbella has hosted a gala event with live entertainment and food available. Everyone donned their gladrags and turned out in the masses to help support the appeal. A fabulous €5700 was raised on the night and many guests brought gifts for the children too! Feedback after the event was beyond glowing, with everyone gushing about what a fantastic night it was.
On Friday December 2, an Ayuda Alimentaria takes place as a collection for this great cause, but also for Cruz Roja and the Adana dog shelter in Estepona. You can drop off your gifts for the kiddies, but also donations for the animals too. You can find them in the large car park opposite Daldin school in Estepona from 1:30pm until 4pm but only on that one day.
If donating gifts for the children – please wrap it and then mark it for a boy or a girl (or both of course) and a recommended age range. What a lovely surprise it will be for the little ones.
You can drop your gifts off at any of the following places. But this list is constantly being updated – so to keep abreast of the latest news, visit the Costa Christmas Collections Facebook page or, if you can help, please telephone Kara Robertson +34 672 575 644.
