PROPERTY MANAGEMENT company, PMR, based in Alfas del Pi, recently celebrated their tenth anniversary with a party in a wonderful villa property in Albir.
Owner Lisa Turner, recently needed the assistance of local charity Help International Benidorm, for one of her clients.
HELP is run totally by volunteers and aims to provide help to residents and visitors in emergencies and times of need.
They assist patients in hospital and pay regular visits to the housebound, helping in emergencies and providing advice when people do not know where to turn.
They have several interpreters to assist people at medical appointments, or handling emergencies requiring the Spanish language.
They also loan medical equipment, including wheelchairs for short term use without charge.
HELP maintains a close relationship with the British Consulate in Alicante and with other charitable organisations.
Volunteer teachers provide free Spanish language lessons for HELP members. (A donation is required)
They also organise their own social events and encourage house-bound members to participate, raising funds which are used to assist other charities that serve the Costa Blanca community.
Impressed by the support her client received from the volunteers from HELP, Lisa and her PMR colleagues decided to raise funds for the organisation.
At the celebration party, attended by friends and local business people, Lisa presented a cheque for 1750 euros to Andrea Hope Vice President of HELP International Benidorm, raised by the PMR team.
