Los Al­cázares rocks for Cruz Azul

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Clubs And Charities -

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.

Why not pay them a visit or do­nate your un­wanted clothes, fur­ni­ture and items to show your sup­port? Call 693 017 616 for more in­for­ma­tion.
