We held our branch AGM just after the Age Concern España AGM; nothing of any interest came out of either – but they are necessary to keep us legal and serve as a moment in time when we can make sure we can survive for another year. So may I take this opportunity to thank all the committee members and volunteers who turn out at a moment’s notice to unselfishly help others. We are always looking for new committee members and volunteer drivers, so if you would like to make life better for someone else, please phone our lifeline 634 315 289.
Can I thank the Monday night Quizzers of the Venta Florentina; this last Quiz in July gave us a magnificent 90€ from the raffle. The next quizzes will be in September, the Age Concern raffle will be on Monday 5th September
Our 634 315 289 lifeline number has been reasonably busy giving out information on things like helpers for night and personal care, and translators. We have advised a number of people that we cannot just turn up on someone’s doorstep because the neighbours / friends are concerned about their welfare. The person concerned must request help for themselves (or their partner) unless they are physically unable to request help.
