F.A.C.E. Celebrate Their 10th Birthday. 

Along with 70 of its friends and supporters, F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) celebrated it's 10th Birthday on  Saturday 12th May at the Bar Kubatin, underneath the Hostel Meson in Arboleas.  

Guests were welcomed with glasses of orange juice, Bucks Fizz or Cava before sitting down to a meal starting with fresh salad, a choice of second and third courses and finishing of with a tasty desert. This was accompanied by a choice of wines on the table. 

Entertainment throughout the evening was provided by Barrington Dubois, known for Soul, Motown & Reggae, but he can sing all genres of music, travelled down from the Valencia Region especially for this event and very soon had everyone on the dance floor.  

A large, unique, cake was also baked for the occasion featuring the F.A.C.E. logo and this was sliced up and shared by all present. 

A small aside of the evening was a raffle of 10 prizes some of which were donated by sponsors of F.A.C.E., which helped to raise the charities coffers by €233.  

Through this 10th Anniversary year F.A.C.E. would like to organise at least a minimum of 10 fundraising events of which four have already been achieved.

F.A.C.E. Splash The Cash At Night Market. 

Due to the very hot weather experienced at the Summer Night Market last year, F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring For Everyone), decided that this years Night Market would be held in the Spring. Unfortunately, to a certain extent, the weather again contrived to be against F.A.C.E. at this experimental Spring event. Heavy thunder clouds rolled over the top of the Bar Kubatin, underneath the Hostel Meson in Arboleas, just before the event was due to start and this probably deterred both some of F.A.C.E.'s traders and supporters from attending the event. It was also a little unfortunate that a few spots of rain just after the market had got underway, tended to disperse people that did attend. 

Never the less the splash from the heavens did not stop F.A.C.E. from splashing the cash! Throughout the evening F.A.C.E. donated a total of €2,000! €500 was donated to the Grupo Scout 106 del Saliente, based in Albox, allowing the Scouts to further update some of their equipment and make improvements to their headquarter rondels. A further €500 was donated to the "Little Owls" for the work they do in providing seriously ill people and their families, throughout the Almanzora Valley with both practical and emotional support. Finally €1,000 was donated to M.A.C.S. (Mojacar Area Cancer Support) allowing them to make another small step towards their dream of building and operating a hospice for Cancer sufferers somewhere within Almería Province.  

In addition to the stalls that were present, entertainment was provided by the 89.8 SmoothFM Family led by Jack Savage and Rod Oxley, and the very, very talented Emma Wild sang a wonderful selection of songs in two different spots. Food and drink was provided by the staff of the Hostel Meson. 

The event it self raised €621-55. 

As F.A.C.E. is celebrating it's 10th Birthday this year, it is attempting to have at least 10 fundraising events and it has set as a target for these events a total of raising €10,000 over the year, and that would really be a cause to celebrate.

F.A.C.E. Summer Market To Be In The Spring. 

F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) are pleased to announce that their annual Summer Night Market this year is to be held in the Spring! The reason for this is that last years market held on the 23rd June just happened to co-incide with one of the hottest evenings of the Summer, which made it very uncomfortable for Committee Members, Stall Holders and Guests alike, so this year it has been decided to hold the event at the Bar Kubatin underneath the Hostal Meson in Arboleas on Friday Evening 27th April, opening to the public at 6-00pm. This should eleviate many of the over heating problems that were caused at last years Night Market. 

There will be a variety of stalls including cards and gifts, candles, windchimes, beers, silver and gemstones Lingerie and Menswear along with Androidman, Avalon, Walk for Life and a CCTV and alarms demonstration.There will also be a Raffle and a Tombola which will be run by F.A.C.E. themselves. If you would like to make a donation of a prize for these games, please get in touch with any of the F.A.C.E. Committee Members or leave your donation at either of the Total Entertainment Shops in Albox or Arboleas, or at Maloan's Bar in Albox. 

Entertainment on the night will be provided by a team from 89.8 SmoothFM Radio led by Jack Savage. Also F.A.C.E. will have the pleasure of popular singer Emma Wilde, who is going to sing a few songs for us. Throughout the evening , various presentations will be made to organisations that operate in the Arboleas, Albox and Almanzora areas. 

Food and drink will be available throughout the evening from the Bar Kubatin and admission to the Marke will cost only €1.

F.A.C.E Celebrating 10 years of Fundraising.

F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) is proud that it has completed 10 years of fundraising in the local community and is proud of its 10 years of history, which has helped to make it the premier people charity in the Almanzora Valley 

In 2003 the mother of the former F.A.C.E. President Adele Wrigglesworth registered her to take part in the “MacMillan Biggest Ever Coffee Morning in the World” Event . Adele had never done charity work before, but with the aid of friends and neighbours, she accepted her mothers challenge and set about organising her first ever charity event, which was held in her garden in Los Garcias in Arboleas. Over the following couple of years the event grew from being a garden event to taking over the whole street. However it was felt that money raised in Spain, should remain in Spain, and so from these humble beginnings, and with much help from the Arboleas Ayuntamiento, the present day F.A.C.E. Charity was born! 

F.A.C.E. is a hard working group of fund raisers, who try to raise funds for various organisations at both a local level for Arboleas and throughout the Almanzora Valley and at a more regional level throughout Southern Spain. 

F.A.C.E. organises different events throughout the year, including Raffles, Tombola’s, Bar Services for local theatre groups, quizzes and “nearly new” clothes sales. In addition it organises and hosts two major events in Arboleas. These are a Christmas Night Market and a Mid Summer Fayre. 

In July 2015 F.A.C.E. was nominated and won a prestigious award at the 6th Annual Almanzora Valley Awards for its charity work. This was the first time that a British run charity had been put forward for one of these awards. 

F.A.C.E has supported over the years on a national level the A.E.C.C. (Asociación Española Contra el Cancer) and A.L.C.E.R. (Asociación para la Lucha Contra Las Enfermedades del Riñon). On a more regional basis it has suported M.A.C.S (Mojacar Area Cancer Support) and locally it has in the past supported Little Owls in Arboleas, Grupo Scout 106 del Saliente in Albox and Harmony in Alfoquia. In addition it has provided Christmas hampers and Christmas presents for the poorest families in the region of Arboleas. 

The present F.A.C.E. Committee comprises of President Carrie Green, Vice President Gilly Elliott-Binns, Treasurer Lynne Dobie, Secretary Lorraine Cundy, Assistant Secretary Pauline Marshall, Press Officer Richard Tolman and Nicki Wakeman. 

F.A.C.E. hopes to Celebrate It's Tenth Anniversary in style however, it needs to firstly hold it's Annual General Meeting, which will be held on Friday 2nd March at the Hostel Meson at 10-30am so that the Committee that is elected can continue with the good work that has already been achieved over the forthcoming 12 months. Any member of the public is welcome to attend.  

Other dates you may like to make a note of in your diary will be the 9th  & 10th  March at 7-30pm and again on Sunday 11th March at 3-00pm when F.A.C.E will be supporting The Luvvies Theatre Group who will be presenting  JB Priestly’s “When We Are Married” at the Teatro Pedro Gilabert in Arboleas. F.A.C.E. will be providing a pre-performance and interval bar. On the 4th, 5th and 6th May F.A.C.E. will again be providing support services to the Incognito Choir at the Teatro Pedro Gilabert in Arboleas and once again will be providing a pre-performance and interval bar. 

For further information about F.A.C.E. and the work it undertakes, or if you are interested in joining this dedicated group of fundraisers, please attend our AGM on Friday 2nd March or contact F.A.C.E. by using the telephone number 634 306 727.
