Kerry's Xmas fair for Cruz Azul

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Social Scene -

CRUZ Azul’s fundrais­ing events help pet own­ers on low in­comes with vet bills, and en­able the char­ity to work with lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to hu­manely con­trol feral cat colonies.

The lat­est event, or­gan­ised by A Time 4 A Change in Los Al­cázares, proved very pop­u­lar, rais­ing €345 for the char­ity.

The own­ers of A Time 4 A Change pro­vided the venue and in­vited stall­hold­ers to take part in what turned out to be a very busy and suc­cess­ful event.

Span­gles Ladies’ Har­mony Cho­rus pro­vided some fes­tive singing while shop­pers browsed the myr­iad stalls, which in­cluded pot­tery, glass, curry kits, clothes, Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, Christ­mas cards, cus­tomised signs, a tombola and a raf­fle.

“We are over­whelmed by the sup­port of our lo­cal com­mu­nity and owe a huge thank you to Kerry Lu­cas at Time 4 A Change for mak­ing it all hap­pen,” said Cruz Azul pres­i­dent Lyn Baines.

“Our thanks must also go to all the lovely stall­hold­ers, Span­gles and ev­ery­one who came to the fair.”

Be­cause of the con­tin­u­ing gen­eros­ity and sup­port from the pub­lic and lo­cal busi­nesses, the amount raised at this event and the grow­ing suc­cess of the Do­na­tion Cen­tre in San Javier, Cruz Azul can con­tinue to help pets whose own­ers are on low in­comes, as well as pro­mot­ing re­spon­si­ble pet own­er­ship with ster­il­i­sa­tion, vac­ci­na­tion and mi­crochip­ping, and help­ing com­mu­ni­ties with their ‘trap, neuter and re­turn’ cam­paigns.

Cruz Azul’s Do­na­tion Cen­tre is sit­u­ated on Avenida de la Unión in San Javier, next door 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. Or donate your un­wanted clothes, fur­ni­ture and items to show your sup­port. Why not pay them a visit? Call 693 017 616 for more in­for­ma­tion.
