Royal British Legion barbecue day raises €1,000


THE MOLLINA branch of the Royal British Legion have cooked up a storm at their fundraising Armed Forces Day barbecue, raising hundreds of Euros for charity.

David and Heather Grey planned and prepared the event, which was attended by more than 100 guests, who were entertained by the Saydo Singers, a male voice choir which was performing its first concert since taking on female members.

After the entertainment, the barbecue was served and an afternoon of fun and fundraising ensued, which involved receiving a very generous donation from the Mollina Park Neighbourhood Association.

Anne Roberts, presenting the trophy to the winner of the accosiation’s photographic competition, said, “this trophy was commissioned to remind us of the seven years dedicated service Christine Watson gave to the British Legion, before her early demise three years ago. It also serves to remind us that many British Legion Activists are not ex-military but spouses, families and friends.”

Though officially on summer break, the Mollina branch is already planning its next event, a Falklands Memorial Dinner on September 14. Tickets are €25 and only 40 spaces are available, with half already sold, so act quickly to avoid disappointment. Contact Barbara at or call in at the Sado Market, fortnightly from July 12.
