Los Alcázares rocks for Cruz Azul
ANIMAL welfare charity Cruz Azul Murcia’s latest music event, ‘Rock My Soul’ proved a huge hit, raising €1,532.50 to help pet owners on low incomes with vet bills, and to work with local communities to control feral cat colonies humanely.
The owners of The New Arches in Los Alcázares provided the venue and John ‘JJ Soulman’ organised the event. JJ’s friends in the music business were keen to take part in this sell-out event.
Guests were treated to great performances by super compere and DJ, Paul Allen, as well as Roxy Housewine (Amy Winehouse tribute), Johnny Lea and the great JJ Soulman himself. Cruz Azul volunteer Emmanuel Vadon added some rock flair with his American Ford Galaxy, which caused quite a stir when he drove in!
“We are overwhelmed by the support of our local community and must thank the people who made it happen,” said Lyn Baines, Cruz Azul president.
“Local businesses donated 21 raffle prizes and, thanks to Lesley Eburne and her team, we raised €780 on the raffle alone.”
Thanks to the continuing generosity and support from the public and local businesses, the fantastic amount raised at this event and the growing success of the Donation Centre in San Javier, Cruz Azul can continue to help more pets whose owners are on low incomes and continue its ‘trap, neuter and return’ programme.
“We recently lost our dear friend Sue Thomason but will continue her legacy and drive forward the way she planned. Responsible pet ownership with programs such as sterilisation, microchipping and vaccination - was Sue’s ambition; we will ensure this happens,” commented Lyn.
Cruz Azul’s Donation Centre is situated on Avenida de la Unión in San Javier, next to Yorkshire Linen. It is open Monday to Saturday from 10.00 until 14.00 and has a wide range of clothes, accessories, jewellery, household goods, furniture, bric-a-brac and more.
