Fundraisers and supporters of Age Concern did the charity proud after a recent quiz night raised a large amount of money in Mazarrón.

THE Diner & Bar on Camposol B, in Mazarrón, welcomed quiz fans and general knowledge buffs to raise money for a wonderful local charity.
The quiz held on Thursday, September 3, successfully raised €355 with all proceeds going to the Age Concern charity.
As far as more events, the charity has announced plans for their annual New Year’s Day Swim.
Brave swimmers will take to the beach and take a lovely swim in the sea to celebrate 2021, as many hope that next year will be a little better than this one.
Sponsorship forms are already available for the January event, so please give Age Concern a call on: 634 312 516 to receive yours.
