Age Concern was delighted to become the very first recipient of the People’s Champion Award at the Pride of Spain award ceremony organised by Costa Blanca People newspaper on Friday 30th November. The award was in recognition of 20 years continuous service helping and supporting the over 50’s on the Southern Costa Blanca.
President, Maureen Payne, graciously accepted this prestigious award on behalf of Age Concern and all the hundreds of volunteers, past and present, who give their time freely, week in and week out.
Casa Cultura, in Benijofar, was full of extremely worthy nominees and winners from various charities, fundraisers and local businesses considered to be the best of the best, but everyone involved in their own charitable work knows just how much hard work it takes to raise vital funds to enable them to care for people or animals.
Age Concern goes from strength to strength into their 21st year endeavouring to give constant care to those who need it most. To find out more about all the services Age Concern offer why not pop into their Day Centre, Calle Paganini, La Siesta on Monday – Friday from 10.00 – 1.30., have a coffee and chat to our volunteers.
