AS WE move towards the end of the year we are busy preparing for our annual Help at Home (HAH) dinner dance and our volunteers lunch celebrations. However, even if the line is muted overnight that will not stop us responding to requests for help via our care line – 633 673 034 – throughout December including the Christmas and New Year period. We will reply to all calls.
We can provide help in and around the home, for which we make no charge; we can introduce more specialist help and advice, and in exceptional circumstances we can help with the cost; we also loan out mobility aids, again without cost.
However, HAH is not an Emergency Service and in such cases,112 is always the number to call.
We can only provide this help without cost because of the fundraising efforts of our own members and the generosity of our donors and sponsors.
For example, in November alone we received the monthly donation from DFS
and a very generous €2,000 from the Luz De Murcia Masonic Lodge. We also raised money from our Monday morning sale of books; DVD’s and puzzles at La Zona, as well as the table top sale of clothing and bric-a-brac which is also held on the last Friday morning of each month at La Zona. Items for sale are always welcome and can be collected.
We are always looking for more people to help and we can be reached through our care line. We also welcome new carers and volunteers even if you can only spare an occasional couple of hours. Potential new members are always welcome at our monthly meetings which are held on the first Tuesday morning of each month at the Las Claras centre in Los Narejos, starting at 11am.
Please note that the January meeting will be held on Tuesday December 9.
