Once again, the charity night at El Paraiso de Guardamar Restaurant was a complete sell out. With WOODY providing the entertainment this was always going to be a great success. 1,142 euros was raised for the Stroke Association Spain, and this will be used towards a special ‘vertical’ bed for the rehabilitation unit.
The bed helps stroke sufferers slowly regain strength and control in their legs. In addition to rehabilitation and physiotherapy there is a range of social activities arranged on Wednesday afternoons, including card-making; zumba; manicures etc. These activities are an important part of the rehabilitation process for stroke victims, and proving very popular.
The next charity night will be in aid of The Children’s Care Home Elche, and is on Thursday 15th November with the fabulous Johnny Scott.
Not only do Johnny and Woody look alike, but their repertoire is very similar, so for a rocking good night don’t miss this one, especially as it will be the last charity night for some time.
Tickets are available from El Paraiso, Post Room Benijofar, Card Place in Benimar and REDZ cafe/bar in Quesada . At just 10 euros, including a meal this represents tremendous value.
