Auction raises money for local charities


THE Rotary International Fellowship of the Costa Blanca North held their annual auction on Friday 3rd March, raising over €775 for local charities and support groups.

Auctioneer Martin Bentley, aided and supported by a volunteer team of collectors and storage providers, brought his hammer down on an incredible number of goods ranging from household, electrical, leisure, hobby and entertainment.

Items included a top of the range laptop and printer, a flat screen TV, some quality wines with various gadgets to store, cool and open them and an ice crusher. A floor polisher, sewing machine, telescopic fishing equipment, bicycles and a garden hammock, not to mention an Elvis Presley clock with the ‘king’ performing on the hour and a timer to keep him quiet at night!

In thanking all the donors, purchasers and the team who had collected and assembled the sale items, President Andrew Johnson said that any unsold items would now be passed on to a local charity shop.

The Fellowship welcome all Rotarians and partners, irrespective of whether they live here in Spain or are just visiting. Meetings are in English on Friday lunchtimes at Los Leones, Sol Park, Moraira.
