AFA Alzheimer’s Torrevieja were given €300 from the Crazy Ladies tap dance group.
The tappers, who practice at the Asturias Restaurant in Punta Prima twice a week, raised the money at a show they held.
The Crazy Ladies group has 18 members attending from all over the Southern Costa Blanca.
They meet twice a week to practice, Wednesdays and Saturdays, to keep fit and do something worthwhile at the same time through the shows they host.
Georgie Anderson and Jackie Hamnet invited Judy Ferris and Janine Lamont, from AFA, to explain the issue of dementia to the group and answer questions.
Judy Ferris, Treasurer of AFA Torrevieja said “This donation is a wonderful surprise for us. The Crazy Ladies tap group not only work hard to keep fit but they also work hard to enable charities like us to continue to do what we do. Tap dancing is an excellent way to exercise the body and mind and as we all know how important it is to maintain cognitive activity”.
The Crazy Ladies will be organising another show for AFA later in the year.
AFA Alzheimer’s Association Torrevieja is available for advice and support.
They have a ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign to raise money to build a much needed residential care home for sufferers.
