Press Release / 2012-05-29 10:33:30
Not only did St. George slay the dragon at the recent St. George’s Day fiesta in Playa Flamenca "he" also raised the whopping sum of €1,409 for charity reported Councillor for Tourism and Beaches, Pedro Mancebo, who organized the fiesta day on the paseo.
“I would like to say a very big thank you to The Royal British Legion, Paul Cunningham Nurses, Age Concern, HAH and The Little Pod Foundation for their hard work and support on the day. Together with the charities from Orihuela we had quite a market down on the promenade he commented. My thanks also goes to the Orihuela Costa Branch of Neighbourhood Watch and the German association, dTOC – Deutschsprachige Tisch who, although are not charities, were present at the fiesta and supported the event.”
“I know I keep repeating myself” said Mancebo “but it is just amazing how our neighbours and residents are willing to help each other. Not only did we all have fun on St. George’s Day but the charities can give themselves a well-earned pat on the back for their hard work for their own charity and supporting the fun day for all.”
“The charity stalls were a super idea for this type of fiesta and are for a good cause at the same time” concluded Mancebo. “They will be definitely down on the list for the next fiesta. A very big thank you goes also to all our residents and guests who attended and supported the fiesta you are amazing!”
