Welcome to Help International Benidorm

Help International Benidorm is a registered charitable organisation, with no political or religious affiliations, run by volunteers to provide help to residents and visitors in emergencies and times of need:

  • We assist patients in hospital and pay regular visits to the housebound
  • We assist in emergencies, providing advice when people do not know where to turn.
  • We have several interpreters to assist people at medical appointments, or handling emergencies requiring the Spanish language.
  • We loan medical equipment- wheelchairs etc.- for short term use without charge.
  • HELP maintains a close relationship with the British Consulate in Alicante and with other charitable organisations.
  • Volunteer teachers provide free Spanish language lessons for HELP members. (A donation is required)
  • We organise our own social events and encourage house-bound members to participate. We raise funds which are used to assist other charities that serve the Costa Blanca community and we work as volunteers to serve that community.

Come and join us on a Thursday morning about 10.30 am at the José Llorca Linares Social Centre, Benidorm - see 'Our Location' for directions.

Relleu Fundraiser Saturday 27th September & Charity Fair at El Cisne 28th September

We look forward now to Jean's Relleu Fundraiser at the Peppermill on Saturday, 1:00pm. She has lots of entertainers booked with a finishing time of 6:00pm - or when the last person falls over! I'm sure that tickets are still available, at €8. We bought ours from Jean but the Peppermill has lots to sell yet!!
It will be a busy weekend with the Charity Fair at El Cisne on Sunday. It will be opened by the Mayor, of Benidorm and the Vice-consul, at 12noon.
HELP International Benidorm will be manning a table, hopefully groaning with anti-weight loss goodies, on the day.

A report from our President, Bill on a BBQ fundraiser for the Emaus Children's home, Relleu

"Sophie and I visited Relleu, for the fundraiser BBQ on Saturday. It was my first time at the Emaus home for children and I liked the place, very much. It is a home in the best meaning of the word. One can see that it isn't just a family house but anyone who has children under the age of ten will have the same drawings on the fridge and toys lying about the place. It isn't a "Fussy" institution. While it doubles as a school it doesn't give that "Schoolroom" impression. The fine old Spanish country building is as welcoming as any that I have previously visited.

Message from our President, Bill

"Seems to have been a short summer break, yes, it was short, we finished two weeks later than usual and will start two weeks early. Our first meeting of the 2014/15 session will be on Thursday 4th September at 11am. Arriving by ten o'clock allows time for a drink and a chat with other members. I understand that the unofficial motto of the Special Air Service is 'Learn by other people's mistakes'. We get together, discuss our own highs and lows and allow others to profit from our experience. (continued under 'read more')
