THE Giving 4 Giving charity donated €1,000 euro to the Gandia Franciscan Shelter to help with their monthly electric bill.

This centre receives no help from any authority and relies on donations from private individuals and charitable businesses.

“There are about 60 male residents who all need care and attention,” Hazel Layt told the Euro Weekly News.

“In the past, British volunteers used to make a lovely meal for them each Saturday but many have returned now to the UK,” she said.

“Others are getting older and might find it difficult to take anything on completely, but many hands make light work.  If you could help an occasional Saturday the residents would have something to look forward to.”

Hazel explained that she lives in Albir but said that any reader who would like further information was welcome to contact her address.
