DIGGING DEEP: Crowds dig deep to donate to Help for Heroes
MORE THAN €2,500 has been raised from the Punta Marina Charity Fun Day, with money still coming in and being counted.
The crowds enjoyed an afternoon of live musical entertainment with singers and dancers as well as The Torrevieja Pipes and Drums who led a march by members of the Royal British Legion. There were stalls, raffles and a bouncy castle for children.
This was the fourth annual event in support of Help for Heroes organised by Lynne Zaber, but the first one to be held in the Punta Marina Commercial Centre. Speaking of the money raised, she said: “I am over the moon and so pleased with the turnout. I would like to thank all artists who gave their time and everyone who contributed.”
Lynne raises funds for Help for Heroes, which help members of the Armed Forces who have been injured in conflicts, as they “have been a huge support to my brother and several of his colleagues fighting in the Armed Forces, which is why I like to do my bit as thanks.”
All money raised goes directly to the charity to allow them to continue helping wounded service men and women to rehabilitate and rebuild their careers.
