Yet another visit from our young friends from Valencia for a bit of English practise, 26th May 2011

English Students

Today we have had a great time with our young Spanish students from Valencia who just love to come and chat to us to practise their English. Afterwards the go off for a 'Big Mac' and enjoy the lovely Benidorm beach. They are a breath of fresh air and always enjoy themselves,(as do we) most especially our rather dubious English jokes! Lots of pictures to follow!

Easter Bonnet Parade

All the competitors

We had a wonderful time at Monroe's, Benidorm on Easter Sunday, and here are a few of the lovely Easter Bonnets that our members produced.

Hospital visiting service

Don't forget, we now have an established hospital visiting service twice weekly at Hospital Marina Baixa, Villajoyosa. Our aim is to give much needed moral support for English speaking patients and to liase with Social Services there.

Volunteers and Interpreters

Just to remind you, we are always looking for Volunteers and Interpreters to help us keep our valuable services available. So if there is anyone out there that thinks they have something to give in translating skills or just some of their time to visit others less fortunate, please contact our President on 607 387 040. The work is voluntary, but expenses are paid.

Recent Donations

Donation to Help

We have recently received two major donations - one from the Autocaravana Club, Benidorm who kindly donated €200 and the other from a grateful person from the UK for all the assistance we gave her and her partner whilst on holiday in Benidorm last year. Mavis broke her leg and was in VJ hospital for some time where we visited and helped where we could, plus taking her to the airport to go home after being discharged. She and Steve did fundraising in the UK and presented us with a cheque for 350 pounds.
