THE FIRST charity fund-raising night at Quesada Fish and Chips Restaurant, was a huge success, raising 1,607 euros for the Children in the Care Home at Elche.
Most of the money will be added to funds recently handed over by Stevie Spit and used to help keep 18 teenagers occupied during the 3 month summer holiday period.
Staff at the home, who are charged with this difficult task, have a full programme of events planned for the youngsters.
These include visits to museums, Rio Safari, cinema, aquapark and more, and include treats for the children during these excursions.
Many of these young people would not get these opportunities in their normal family life, so their excitement is palpable.
The next fund-raising night at Quesada Fish & Chips is on Wednesday July 9, with entertainment by the ever popular, Woody & the Peckers.
Tickets, including a two course meal, are just 10 euros, and can be bought from the Restaurant, Post Room Benijofar, The Card Place in Benimar and REDZ cafe bar in Quesada.
Tickets will be limited, to ensure space and comfort for all diners, so early booking is advised. Money raised on this night will be donated to Torrevieja Stroke Support.
