THE first Mojacar FaXtor talent contest heat was off to a good start at the Emerald Isle on July 4.

“A great night was had by all,” said one of the organisers, Carol Newton. 

Sally Grant was the heatwinner and the first contestant through to the Grand Finale, with Stewart Dorricot the runner-up. 

“All entrants did well and the scores were tight,” Carol added.

The Mojacar FaXtor is more than a talent contest, as Carol and Shea Fox are fundraising for the Ukrainian Refugee Relief charity.

They are also bringing in more funds via scratch cards and a grand raffle with a first prize of a seven-night break for two in a studio apartment at the San Antonio four-star hotel in Malta. Bed, breakfast and an evening meal, plus drinks, are included.

But there are scores of other prizes, listed in previous editions of the Euro Weekly News and full details are also available from Carol (634381386) or Ron Fazey (44 7910128569 ronfazey1@msn.com).
