Costa del Sol News: Age care donations help Citizen’s Advice get around with new car in Calahonda

THIS week Tom Tar, Vice President for Age Care Association and Lesley Berridge, Welfare Officer of Calahonda donated €1000 from Age Care’s yearly donations to Myra enabling the Citizen Advice Bureau to obtain a new car to help them continue with their incredible work in Spain.

Myra Azzopardi the founder of Citizen Advice Bureau was asked in 1995 to set out a list detailing the type of problems that the non-Spanish community and visitors were experiencing whilst in Spain.

Assisting a group of interested people, the first office for foreigners was eventually set up in Estepona by the then newly elected Government.

As a result of a demand for a more extensive service concluded with Myra setting up the Costa Advice Bureau in 2006.

During the following years, it became apparent that the expatriate community needed a place and persons to whom they could turn to for support.

With this in mind a project to set up a group for the expatriate residents, non-residents and visitors alike, in need of advice, assistance, and accurate information. This and more, they can now find at the Citizens Advice Bureau Spain.
