LA CALA DE MIJAS Lions took flight or rather their darts did as President Graham Rutland organised a great afternoon of darts for 50 unsuspecting supporters on April 18.
Held at Miraflores Club, recently opened and a really lovely setting for all events, those taking part said that the venue, menu and service was perfect, not to mention the sunshine.
‘Let’s Play Darts’ said the poster – based on the TV show Bullseye – and everyone thought it would be like playing your local pub, but no! Graham ably supported by favourite funster John Sharples would only allow the score if a correct answer was given to a question.
More than €500 was raised on the day for the Lions Charity.
The Lions will be at the Solidarity market on Saturday April 24 and Wednesday April 28 at the La Cala Town Hall with lots of great items from their charity shop in Calle Torremolinos just around the corner as well the Diabetic and Alzheimer stalls where they will be will be giving random glucose checks.
Please be aware that the Spring Fashion Show and Fayre is due to take place at Miraflores Club (not the Golf Club) on May 24 and there are still some stalls available at €15, so if interested in taking one, contact Anne Bowles via email [email protected] or call 607 879 450.
