Lion President Janette Bennett of Torrevieja Costa Lions Club was delighted to make a presentation to Antonio Perez Garcia, Mayor of Rojales at Ayuntamiento Rojales on Friday 7th February on behalf of the Torrevieja Costa Lions Club.

The Lions pledged to donate 500.00 euros to help feed the homeless and most needy in Rojales. Following a meeting with Julio Dominguez at the town hall, it was decided that the most needed item required was milk, so the Lions agreed to purchase 500.00 euros worth of milk. Thanks go to the management at Mercadona in Rojales who kindly delivered the milk directly to the town hall. In total the Lions donated 828 litres of milk, divided equally to provide full cream milk and semi skimmed milk.

Ayuntamiento Rojales provide support for over 100 families in the municipality, and whilst some excellent donations were received over the Christmas period, the need is on going all year round and everyone associated with the Town hall is very grateful for any support that is forthcoming. The Lions are now considering holding a fund raising event in Rojales later in the year.

This donation to Rojales is the fourth donation by the Lions to those most in need in towns and villages in the area . In recent weeks the Lions have also donated 500.00 euros worth of food to Vecinos San Miguel Archangel, Alimentos Solidarios Torrevieja, and Reach Out Torrevieja. In addition The Lions purchased a chest freezer for Reach Out in Torrevieja which has greatly helped Reach Out in their drop in centre in Torrevieja.

On 22nd February the Lions are promoting a performance of West Side Story by the Footlights Youth Theatre Group in Teatro Municipal Torrevieja with all profits going to Reach Out.

Lion President Janette is pleased to announce that tickets for the show sold out over three weeks in advance of the performance.
