Age Concern, Estepona and Manilva Press Release, 16th December 2017
Another year draws to a close and Christmas is upon us once more. Age Concern, Estepona and Manilva, has had a hectic year with the separation of San Pedro and Marbella into a new Age Concern Organisation, the establishment of strong working links with the Duquesa Charitable Society of Saint George in Sabinillas, and the increase in the number of complex cases referred to us. Life is hard for so many of our older contacts and getting harder.
Without our dedicated volunteers and supporters we would find it almost impossible to cope with all of the requests for information, advice and help. So a big thank you to all of them. Fund raising has been crucial in supporting the work of our volunteers in the community. A recent lunch for volunteers was recently held at El Hatillo in Estepona which brought many of the workers together for a great meal and a good natter about the work they do.
We have had meetings with the Council to try and get help from them with, for example, storage facilities, but in spite of promises nothing has happened, so we will be chasing them again early in the New Year. Why no response? We have no idea. It is as if once we have met them they immediately forget about it.
Anyway we want to wish all of your readers a Very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. Thank you for your continuing support, lets make sure all of the older people who ask for help get it!
