F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) has, after its very successful Christmas Market and Christmas Party events, tried to spread a little Christmas Cheer.
One person who definitely was cheered by F.A.C.E. was the Grand Christmas Raffle Winner Babs Kenningay of La Cueva, Arboleas who received €200. This was presented to her at the Bar Las Palmeros in Arboleas.
The Turre charity group called “Stepping Stones Carers Support Group” took their patients to an Annual Christmas Dinner at the Miraflores Ballroom in Los Gallardos.
The group supports all carers of patients who suffer from many types of illnesses. They meet at the Turre Evangelical Church every Thursday between 11am and 1.30pm and volunteers are always welcome. F.A.C.E. was also represented and Christmas gifts were distributed to all of the 23 patients who were in attendance.
In addition F.A.C.E. has this year joined with “Little Owls” to provide all the children of the 24 familiies living below the breadline in Arboleas, with Christmas gifts! A total of some 34 children.
Finally those very same families will receive a hamper of food funded by F.A.C.E., just before the Day of the Kings so that even the poorest families will have something to celebrate.
F.A.C.E. is acutely aware that it is only due to the caring community of volunteeers and supporters, that it can continue. F.A.C.E. would like to thank everyone for the support they have received in the past and hopes that you will continue to support it in the future.
Adele Wrigglesworth (F.A.C.E. President) would like, on behalf of all the F.A.C.E. Committee, to wish everyone, wherever they may be, compliments of the season.
