THE Pensionistas Hall in Jalon set the perfect scene for the Jalon Valley A.R.C.’s Christmas Fair last Sunday.

Stallholders arrived bright and early to set up their colourful displays offering a variety of food and drink, crafts, bags, bric-a-brac, books and cards.

The ever-popular Matt Mason serenaded shoppers and was joined by the U3A Vall del Pop Popsters and Ukulele Groups.

The afternoon ended with the drawing of the Grand Charity Raffle,much to the delight of the winners who went home with an array of excellent prizes, generously donated by local businesses.

The event raised an outstanding sum of €2,350, all of which will go towards supporting all the rescued animals in A.R.C.’s care

Jalon Valley A.R.C.expresses its greatest thanks to its volunteers who give their time working in the shelter, walking dogs and of course at the charity shop and the many fund-raising events: “Your help is so valuable and A.R.C. could not function without you!”

A date for your diary:

Jalon Valley A.R.C.’s next fundraising event will take place at Iceland in Benissa on Wednesday December 20 and Friday December 22. Volunteers will be on hand to help shoppers pack their Christmas shopping bags and a hamper filled with festive goodies will be raffled.
