THE ALMANZORA Group of Friends pitched in and did their bit to help with the ‘Grand Collection’ for the Food Bank.
The group had once again responded to the FESBAL Spanish Food Banks Federation’s call for volunteers to assist at the collection points, where the public donated non-perishable food and other items for associations and centres, food kitchens and old age people’s homes.
Group members were on duty at Albox supermarkets on Friday November 22 and Saturday November 23, reporting an overwhelming response from residents of all nationalities.
Newsletter editor Sarah Makin was one of the group members taking part and getting customers to dig deep into their pockets and buy goods for the needy.
The Group of Friends joined members of the La Concepcion branch of Caritas, one of the associations involved in the distribution of the donations, who organised the volunteers and the rota.
