When times are tough, it is important to remember the positive things that can be achieved by harnessing the co-operative spirit, reminds the Brethren of Santa Faz Lodge No. 48 which has launched its annual Christmas Charity Appeal.
“WE know that for many, these can be uncertain times as we all continue to navigate the current pandemic, those of us who are in a relatively comfortable and fortunate situation can pull together to support those less fortunate in the community.
“The Brethren of Santa Faz Lodge No. 48, in conjunction with The International Club, are planning to buy a couple of extra items each time they shop to add to the collection which will be donated to Cruz Roja for the relief of local people.”
Items needed are non-perishable food stuffs (tinned meats, soups, rice, dried fruits, cereals) toiletries, personal hygiene items, baby food products, hand cleanser etc.
Just a couple of items extra to your basket/trolley would hardly be noticeable to your shopping bill but would make a big difference to those who are unable to afford those items through no fault of their own.
Those unwilling or unable to purchase extra items may wish to make a monetary donation.
All such donations will go to the purchase of necessary items where there is a shortfall.
Please bring your contributions to The International Club, Camino Real de Villajoyosa, 22, El Campello, during opening hours on any Sunday and they will be passed to Cruz Roja for distribution to the needy.
For more information, call Barry Howell on 722 496 493.
