By Press Release / 2013-11-24 09:30:35

The Torrevieja Costa Lions Club are now in full stride with fund raising for those in most need in the Philippines, following the tragic outcome of Typhoon Haiyan. On Sunday 17th November the Lions in association with Sunshine FM hosted 6 hours of music, dance and entertainment at The Emerald Isle in La Florida.

 At very short notice Simon Morton Managing Director and Presenter on Sunshine FM pulled together a fabulous array of entertainers, including Dan Davy, Nik Gold, local X Factor winner Yasmin Dumbreck, Sunflower Valley, Matrix Studio, Raquel Pena Dancers,

The Jazz Singer Neil Diamond, and the super tenor voice of Paul Michael ably assisted by the falsetto voice of Simon Morton, Total Dance Group from Benijofar and an excellent Elvis Presley (Simon Morton style) performance to kept the audience enthralled into the early evening. With an excellent prize draw and the great generosity of the regulars at

The Emerald Isle the Lions were able to raise 1,609.36 towards their fund raising efforts.
On Wednesday 20th November The Lions promoted and hosted the Rogers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific which was performed by Footlights Theatre Group from Calpe to a full house in Teatro Municipal in Torevieja.

Originally the Lions had planned to donate any profits from the show to Reach Out, the Torrevieja Charity for the homeless and needy in Torrevieja, however the Directors of Reach Out asked that on this occasion that any profits are sent to help the Lions Hope for the Philippines Appeal.

The Lions agreed to accept this very generous offer from Reach Out, and have promised to return to Reach Out early in the new year to lend their support.

On the evening of South Pacific there was a prize draw and bucket collection for the Philippines raising a magnificent 808.07euros. Once all the theatre and Footlights bills are payed the Lions share of the profits will also go to the Philippines appeal

Coming up there are prize draws at various locations in the area, Lo Marabu Quesada, Post Box Quesada, IBEX Insurance La Zenia, Paddy's Point La Zenia, and Quesada Fish and Chips.

There are also fund raising fun nights in the following locations- Paddy's Point on Friday 29th November at 1900 hrs, Lo Marabu on Wednesday 4th December at 1800 hrs and O Sheas' on Friday 6th December at 2000 hrs.

As usual the Lions will be joining JB Brass at La Zenia beach on Christmas Day around 1145 hrs.
