Helping Noa in Teulada

SOLIDARITY: (l to r) Kiko, Flip, Stan and Simon

SOME weeks back The EuroWeekly News ran a short item about Teulada taxi-driver, Kiko Garcia.

Kiko collects bottle tops and plastic for recycling to raise money Noa Alvarez, an eight-year-old from Calpe. He also made a personal contribution of €500 to Noa’s fund.

Noa suffered brain damage after contracting meningitis and her family struggle to cover heavy outgoings that include a €4,000 wheelchair.

Then reader Stan Turner who lives in La Cala de Finestrat rang the EWN offices.  He already had a huge collection of plastic and would like to contact Kiko, he told us.

We might not have a magic wand – but we could trace Kiko and he readily offered to meet Stan in La Cala de Finestrat . 

Kiko has now picked up two carloads of bottle tops for Noa.  And he will be returning, Stan told us, as he and his friends are still collecting.
