'A Treat for Christmas' Campaign
As the clock ticks down to Christmas, the annual ‘A Treat for Christmas’ campaign has been launched by local British expat Caroline Tyszka. This has been something that Caroline has organisied and instigated since 2015 for the benefit of those using the Alfaz del Pi food bank.
Although basics are always needed, Christmas is a time when it can seem particularly bleak for some families, especially the children, who do not fully understand the financial hardships being experienced.
Speaking to CBN, Caroline said “Something as simple as donating a bar of chocolate, a bag of sweets or seasonal biscuits can make such a difference to those using the food bank. It doesn’t solve their longer term problems, but hopefully makes for a merrier Christmas”.
Collection boxes have been placed at six local business, where you can drop items off: RKA Tattoos in Benidorm, Winnies Bar in La Cala, Giving4Giving in La Nucia, Hepburn’s Hair Salon on Camping Almafra, The Church Irish Bar in Albir and Bistro Shabby Chic in Altea Old Town.
The campaign will run until Friday, December 14. Caroline said “It’s minimal effort on my part, with the community and local businesses spreading the word to their customers and filling the boxes. Without the generosity of everyone the campaign could not have been as successful as it has over the past few years.
