Mijas Lions red carpet event


LA CALA DE MIJAS LIONS continue to celebrate their 2016/2017 centenary year with an awards ceremony celebrating school children who give back to their communities.

The charity has created the Legacy Project, a scheme aimed at helping as many young people as possible, both in schools and in other organisations providing sporting and playgroup activities.

As part of this, the two high schools in La Cala, IES La Cala and IES Torre Almenara, were invited to select one student from each of their four classes who had contributed the most to school life during the past year in a non-academic way.

The prizes were presented to the eight students during a ceremony at the Casa de Cultura, with each of the young people receiving €100 and a specially made individual plaque, produced by the Encina Laura Establishment in Alhaurin de la Torre, a centre for young people with learning difficulties.

Following an introduction by President of the La Cala Lions Club, Paul Butler, the two head teachers, Marilo Castillo, Head of IES Torre Almenara, and Alberto Bermudez Fernandez, Head of IES La Cala, made short presentations explaining the reasons for selecting the prize-winners.

Councillor Laura Moreno Marin then gave a short speech thanking the Lions for their contributions to life in La Cala, before presenting the prizes and plaques. Attendees then enjoyed the rest of the evening with drinks and tapas.
