Help Murcia Mar Menor


Our President

Welcome to the Home page of HELP Murcia Mar Menor

Let me introduce myself. My name is Christine Baillie and I am the seventh President of HELP Murcia Mar Menor. I am a native of Leeds in Yorkshire and made the move to Spain in late 2001 with my late husband.

I have been a member of HELP since 2014 and was elected as President at the Charity’s AGM in March 2017 having been the secretary for the past two years a post that at present I will continue to fill.

In England I worked as a P.A. in various commercial enterprises. Before coming to Spain I used to love to walk over the Yorkshire Dales but now my walking is restricted to Los Alcazares and the walking tracks on the upper decks of cruise liners.

I am looking forward to taking HELP Murcia Mar Menor forward and improving the Charity’s ability to be of help to anyone in need, ex-pats, locals or visitors of any nationality.
