Torrevieja’s Councilor for NGOs and Volunteers Carmen Morate, was on hand at the double donation made last week by the largely British Torrevieja Flower Club where a total of 3000 euros was presented to two local charities, Stroke Support and Animalistas Torrevieja, with each of the organisations receiving 1500 euros.
Morate presented both cheques on behalf of the Torrevieja Flower Club explaining that the money would be used to continue with the great work that they both carry out for the benefit of the community on a daily basis.
Stroke Support, active since 2007 and located in La Siesta, provides support an rehabilitation to many elderly foreign residents with health and mobility problems while Animalistas Torrevieja, founded in 2012 carries out animal welfare work in the municipal kennels.
The Torrevieja Flower Club, which organizes floral competitions in, is known for the generous donations it regularly makes in the local community.
In presenting the donations Morate highlighted the value of the work they are carrying out and encouraged those who are interested in flowers and gardening to go along.
