On Thursday 24th May at the HELP office in Los Alcazares HELP´s President Christine Baillie presented a cheque for €3000 to Snr. Antonio Tarraga Zapata, Director of Caritas San Pedro and Snr. Antonio Lopez Moreno who working with the Red Cross are supporting those in need in the San Pedro area.
Many of the hotels and supermarkets in the San Pedro area have large quantities of fresh food left at the end of the working day and they are quite willing to donate this food to the Red Cross rather than it going to landfill sites.
The money will go a long way towards purchasing an industrial size cold cabinet so that the Red Cross can collect and store this food overnight ready to be given to those in need the following day.
This donation of money raised by the volunteers of HELP Murcia Mar Menor during 2017 from their outlet and car boot sales is the third to have been made this year making a total so far of €9000 given to Charities in the Mar Menor area.
