F.A.C.E. Raffle Winner Found.

 The Winner of the F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) Christmas Raffle, proved to be a little difficult to contact this year. Normally the charity telephones all the Prize Winners, as soon as the raffle has been drawn. This year the charity kept drawing a blank everytime they tried to contact Belgian Winners Frans Desmet and Piler Oripo. The reason being that Frans and Piler of El German, Arboleas, had been very early purchasers of the winning raffle ticket and in the meantime they had changed their telephone and consequently their telephone number. Fortunately the F.A.C.E. Committee Member who had originally sold them the tickets remembered selling tickets to the couple, and when parking in Arboleas, happened to park next to Frans and Piler. The Committee Member asked their names, and when asked they just happened to produce the winning ticket enabling them to collect the main prize of €200. 

Piler and Frans lived in Belgium, near Bruges, until they moved to Arboleas 5 years ago. This was the first time they had purchased F.A.C.E. Christmas Raffle tickets and although over the years they have won small prizes in various raffles, this is the first time they have won any major prize. 

The presentation of the cheque was made in Pablo's Bar Arboleas.

A.E.C.C. Receive Double Whammy! 

To mark the end of the Spanish National Cancer month of October, the A.E.C.C (Asociación Española Contra El Cancer) was visited by two local groups of people recently at their office in Albox. To increase the interest in the visit both groups came bearing gifts, giving the A.E.C.C. a double whammy! 

The first group was from the Almería Bowling Centre in Los Llanos, Arboleas. The Bowling Alley's General Manager, Rafael Aranda Amate and Staff Member Helen Simpson were visiting to present the A.E.C.C. with cash and a cheque to the value of €607. This had been raised during a special Bowling for Cancer Day, which had been raised earlier in the year, 

The second group was from F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone), represented by Vice President Carrie Green. This was to make a presentation of a cheque for €1,000.  

The A.E.C.C. is a national Spanish cancer support group, which operates telephone lines and a website, from which cancer sufferers, their families and the general public can obtain information about cancer. The charity also provides accommodation for cancer patients and support for the mobile breast screening units that can regularly be seen in the towns and villages throughout the Almanzora Valley.
