Adele enlisted a few friends and neighbours and the first charity event was under way. From these small beginnings and with much assistance from the late Mayor of Arboleas, Francisco Pérez Miras, the present day charity of F.A.C.E came into existence, and has since grown in to the organisation it is today. Adele has had to stand back from F.A.C.E. due to family commitments in the United Kingdom, but is still very much part of the F.A.C.E. Committee.
