THE Mojacar FaXtor contest was more than an opportunity for residents and visitors to display their talents.

It was also an innovative way to raise money for the Shea Fox Ukrainian Refugees fund and on October 6, the Mojacar Red Cross branch received a cheque for €5,001.

This followed an earlier donation of €2,011 resulting from Mojacar FaXtor co-organisers Carol Newton’s head shave at the Valery Cocktail and Music Bar in May.

In all, both this event and the Mojacar FaXtor raised a total of €7,752 less expenses of €80 and the contestants’ prize money of €660.
