Marjory Norris from the Peacocks Petanca Club, based at El Paraiso Restaurant, Guardamar, made a surprise visit to the Day Centre of Age Concern recently to donate 450 euros to the charity. This huge amount of money was graciously received by Brenda Hickin on behalf of Age Concern.
The Peacocks are staunch fundraisers from various social events they hold and every year their committee decide worthy charities to donate to. This is not the first time Age Concern have benefitted from a donation from this group as their main aim is support people maintaining good health and well-being, which is also the main aim of Age Concern.
The money raised will go to providing services for people to enjoy their autumn years socially at the Day Centre at Calle Paganini, La Siesta or benefit from our Lifeline services, keeping the Day Centre operational, vehicles running, volunteer training, upkeep of all the mobility aids etc., Age Concern rely on donations from organisations such as the Peacock Petanc Club so a hearty thank you goes to this fun loving group.
