We have had a very busy year with Help. Many of the committee were new and they settled very quickly into their new roles. The demand for Interpreters has been very high since hospitals and surgeries requested interpreters at all appointments. So also the need for home visits and transport drivers have risen.

We have dealt with a good deal of diverse situations around the local areas of Benidorm. Because of the complex nature of some of these cases, we have formed strong links with the British Consul in Alicante, and with other Help Organisations. Between us we were able to advise, guide and support each other.

Naturally all our good deeds deserve to be rewarded with the enjoyment of various social activities. The most recent events were our Help Christmas Fayre and our Help Christmas party. You can read brief reports and view photos in the 'news and reports' section.

Finally we would like to give our thanks to Stan and Pauline Kearey who have created this web site. They have given so much of their time to enable this site to be running this year. Stan has suffered from Muscular Dystrophy for over 20 years and his wife Pauline, is his full-time carer. See Stan's links to their own web sites in the "Links" page.
