Little Owls Hooting With Delight.

F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) continued their Summer Season of giving, by donating €500 to the "LIttle Owls" at the Azabache Hostel in Arboleas, recently. 

The "Little Owls" is a voluntary practical support group, providing emotional and practical support to people who are living with terminal illness, those who are bereaved, or who are simply lonely. In fact "Little Owls" will try to assist anyone who may need help in the Arboleas, Albox and Partaloa areas.

"Little Owls" can provide a listening ear, and also help to talk through any worries a person might have. The group can provide information on local services available to those needing further help, and can also offer practical assistance in the form of shopping, ironing, and assisting people to visit hospitals or doctors. 

For those that need it, the group can also provide companionship by dropping in to some one's home, maybe just for a cup of tea or coffee and a little chat. The group can also provide various items of equipment such as Zimmer frames, commodes and wheelchairs on a short term basis. 

Finally "Little Owls" can also offer carers a short break from their caring roles, even if it is only for a few hours a week. Being able to leave your loved ones with some one you can trust can make such a big difference. 

If you would like assistance from "Little Owls" or just want more information, please e-mail littleowls@hotmail.es 

F.A.C.E. has supported "Little Owls" for several years now and is pleased to continue this association with "Little Owls" by making this €500 donation. F.A.C.E. hopes that this affiliation will continue long into the future. 

Should you be interested in joining F.A.C.E., or would like further information regarding their aims and achievements, please contact Adele Wrigglesworth (F.A.C.E. President) on telephone number 667 255 094, or visit the F.A.C.E. Facebook page or the website at www.face-charity.com.

F.A.C.E. Keep Giving!

Although F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) have unfortunately had to cancel this years annual Summer Market which was to have been held on the 1st July, due to circumstances beyond the groups control, their programme of donations will continue as usual. 

The first of the Summer donations was made recently to M.A.C.S. (Mojacar Area Cancer Support) at the M.A.C.S. shop in Turre. A new mobile clothes rail was donated to M.A.C.S President Elaine Brown and in addition  €1,000 was also donated. 

The M.A.C.S. shop in Turre was the original shop to open under the M.A.C.S. brand name. Since first opening, three other shops in Mojacar, Huercal Overa and Albox, have also opened. F.A.C.E. has provided support towards the opening of each of the shops. The long term aim of the shops is to raise enough funds that a hospice can be opened somewhere within the Mojacar/Almanzora Valley area, that will be able to support people that suffer from Cancer.

M.A.C.S already supports many Cancer sufferers throughout the region by providing home support and advice, transport, translation services and equipment, and many of its services are provided free of charge to the patient, so the funds raised by the four shops are vital to M.A.C.S's present commitments as well as to it's long term aims of opening a hospice. 

The Turre shop is now looking a little tired and needs a little bit of love and attention. F.A.C.E. have donated the €1,000 towards a refurbishment of the shop, which hopefully will help the shop to continue to raise funds for Cancer sufferer's. 

Both M.A.C.S. and F.A.C.E. are desperate for more volunteeers to help both organisations to continue their good works. If you would like to become a volunteer for M.A.C.S. and have a few hours a week to spare and feel that you could be of use to the organisation, please call into any one of the M.A.C.S shops where they will be only to pleased to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. If you would like to join the enthusiastic group of Fundraisers that is F.A.C.E. please ring Adele Wrigglesworth (President) on telephone number 667 255 094. For further information on F.A.C.E please take a look at their web site at www.face-charity.com  or look at their Face book page.

   Scouts Celebrate 100th Birthday.

Although the Scouts are well known and recognised throughout the whole world, their presence in this part of Spain is not so well known about. In fact there are several Scout groups not only in Almería, but throughout Andalucía. However the Albox Grupo Scout 106 del Saliente is a little bit special this year because not only is it the only Almería group based outside of Almería City   it is also celebrating it's 100th Birthday. 

The Albox group comprises of over 90 youngsters, both Spanish and English speaking, and their Headquarters is the group of Rondel Buildings situated below the old bridge in Albox adjacent to the new childrens park. 

This year there will be many different ways in which their Centenary Birthday year will be celebrated. One of these events was held on Saturday 23rd April when approxiamately 1,500 scouts converged on Albox which hosted the XXV Festival de la Canción ASDE Scouts de Andalucía. 

The event was attended by various scout officials and troups including a British group from the Costa del Sol. Also in attendance was the Mayor of Albox, Sonia Cerdán, British Councillor Maura Hillen and F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone). 

At the Inaugaration Ceremony F.A.C.E. President Adele Wrigglesworth accompanied by Richard Tolman, presented members of Grupo Scout 106 del Saliente with a Birthday present of four tents. The group was also presented with a Commemorative Certificate by the British group of scouts from the Costa del Sol. 

The afternoon was full of singing and dancing and enjoyed by all present. What a great way to celebrate the start of a great 100th Birthday year.

Fairies Abound At F.A.C.E. Quiz Night.

F.A.C.E. (Fundraising Raising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) held their Annual Quiz Night at the Bar Kubatin in Arboleas using a theme of Fairies. 

The night was hosted by Smooth fm Radio presenter Ray Peters and 10 teams, made up of four to six players, battled it out over four rounds and 86 questions to win various prizes. Each one of the four rounds was sponsored by Angels Nursing Group, Smooth FM Radio, The Almería Ten Pin Bowling Centre and UK Satelite TV. All of the F.A.C.E. Committee were dressed in various fancy dress costumes and one of the quiz rounds had questions and answers that related to fairies.  

The Winning Team was "Clueless" led by Jan and John Dando, with the Team of 6 "Carrie's Dusty Boots" members finishing second and "The Aljambrians" led by Alice Bradbury and Wendy Plumb finished third in what turned out to be a very closely fought competition.   

As well as the quiz there was a raffle with one of the main prizes being a Jamon Seron which was donated by the Hostal Meson, Arboleas. 

During the evening Jeanette Randall was celebrating her Birthday, so F.A.C.E. organised a cake and candles to mark the event.

The main aim was of course to raise money for the various charities which F.A.C.E. supports on an on going basis. In this they were successful as the event raised a total of     € 446-76.

Market Day Fundraising. 

Volunteeers of F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) manned the Market stalls, or at least one of them, recently, at the Los Llanos Saturday Market in Arboleas. 

The F.A.C.E. team had put together an attractive display of ladies and gentleman's wear, which had very kindly been donated by supporters of the charity. It raised €165-50 on a day which was not that encouraging for shoppers due to the inclement weather conditions. F.A.C.E. would like to thank all their supporters and donators for making this event possible.
