MAY IS set to be a busy month for Mojacar animal charity Paws-Patas with big fundraising events to be held over two consecutive weekends.
On Friday May 5 and Saturday May 6 they are holding a Spring Concert in the Salon Tercera Edad at Mojacar Centro de Usos Multiples.
The Incognito Singers will be performing at both concerts singing a selection of music from across the years and featuring songs from all genres.
They will showcase songs from stage shows, film ballads, love songs, easy listening, light classical, Opera and sacred music, just about something for everyone, all under the musical guidance of David Murphy.
The Friday concert will start at 8.00pm, with the Saturday matinee beginning at 3.00pm.
Tickets are 5 euros each with all proceeds from the concerts going to Paws-Patas. They can be bought direct from the charity, from PC Playa in Mojacar and Connexions in Turre.
The following Saturday and Sunday May 13 and 14 they are calling out to all budding gardeners and DIY enthusiasts interested in helping the charity at their shelter headquarters on a ‘Ground Force’ Weekend.
The idea behind the event is to invite local people to a social day with free buffet and drinks, and a chance to meet other like-minded enthusiasts interested in gardening and general maintenance work.
They also hope to welcome any animal lovers who would like to go along, have some fun and help one another smarten up the animal shelter and also meet other volunteers and staff.
Saturday’s ‘Ground Force’ Day begins at 9.30am and ends at 5.30pm, whilst the Sunday event will run from 9.30am and 2.00pm and volunteers are welcome to spend as much time as they can spare. They are also asked to bring their own gloves and tools if possible.
PAWS-PATAS Shelter is situated on the track by the trees opposite the Night Club on the Garrucha to Los Gallardos Road close to Turre. Look out for the signs and red balloons advertising the event. Anyone who would like to book lunch either day should call 629 252 292 to reserve.
Recent fundraising events for Paw-Patas have been very successful in raising much needed money for the animals and Chrissie Cremore from the charity extended her gratitude to the organisers and volunteers involved.
Tony Matthews, who raised 150 euros from a Quiz Night; Sam Spencer, Cattery manager; Bill White from the Indalo Players; Ruth Wood and Sue Mehmet, director and producer of the Robinson Crusoe Pantomime, which raised 383.00 euros and Jill Hussein, who is in the photograph with Kim one of the shelter’s dogs found starving and scavenging as a pup and still looking for a “forever home”.
She also extended the charity’s thanks to Annabelle and Jim Dale-Grey who raised a staggering 850 euros from the recent production of Hotel La Resistance, explaining that owing to public demand, more shows will return after the summer.
ll funds raised from recent and future events will help the charity’s cat neutering programme, puppy vaccinations and medical needs and any other general requirements.
