F.A.C.E. Christmas Market Raises Over €2,700. 

F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) took place on the first night of December in an especially erected marquee situated in the centre of Arboleas, outside the Ayuntamiento. 

The market was officially opened by Arboleas Councillor Mark "Danny" Daniels accompanied by F.A.C.E. President Carrie Green.

Entertainment was provided throughout the evening by 89,8 Smooth FM Radio presenters Jack Savage, Rod Oxley, Gale Force, Tony Nash, Ricky Cross and Richard Bond, with assistance from Carole Brumwell and station owners Bev and Neil Holmes. A theatrical Line Dance Exhibition was also performed by "Carrie's Dusty Boots" using the musical "Oliver" as their main theme. Santa Claus was also kind enough to take time out from his usual busy December period and pay a visit to the Christmas Market accompanied by a rather tall Santa's Little Helper.

Throughout the evening various "Christmas Presents" were given, in the form of a cheque, to different charities and organisations. The Grupo Scout 106 del Saliente, the "Little Owls" and M.A.C.S. (Mojacar Area Cancer Support) were all given a cheque for €500. The two National Charities A.L.C.E.R. (Asociación para la Lucha Enfermadades del Riñon) and the A.E.C.C. (Asociación Española Contra El Cancer) both received cheques for €1,000. This made a total of €3.500 given away as "Christmas Presents". 

The F.A.C.E. Grand Christmas Draw also took place at the Christmas Market and was won by David Cope. The full list of Prize Winners in the draw can be seen on either the F.A.C.E. Facebook Page or the F.A.C.E. Website.

The total amount of money raised by the Christmas Market was a fantastic €2,741-51, and this money will go towards future donations that will be made by F.A.C.E. 

The F.A.C.E. Committee, would like to thank the Arboleas Council for it's continued support. It would also like to thank the sponsorsof the event Albox Insurance, the Almería Bowling Centre, 89.8Smooth FM Radio and Maloan's Bar in Albox for their generous donations of prizes and equipment. Lastly but certainly not least of all F.A.C.E. would like to thank their volunteers for assisting, all the market traders who helped to make the night the success it was, and most of all the 450 members of the public who took the time to visit the market on a bitterly cold Winter's Evening.
