On Friday 23rd Sept. Elaine Dale held the last of her very popular quiz nights as a fund raiser for HELP Murcia Mar Menor, at the Las Claras centre, attended by 40 members and friends. Elaine who is the Vice President of HELP has been putting on The Quiz with a Difference for the past ten years and as a mark of appreciation she was presented with a bouquet of flowers by HELP's president Pat Massingham.
During the last weeks of May HELP Murcia Mar Menor was able to make its last three donations to charities in the Murcia region from monies raised during 2015. Pat Massingham president of HELP presented Rafael Ros Bobadilla of Afacmur with a cheque for €2000. This charity assists families who have children who have been diagnosed with cancer by means of visits from psychologists who assess the home situation and then offer the help needed. Children in hospital receiving chemotherapy treatment are guided through the process by people who are able to help them understand and cope with the situation they find themselves in. Afacmur also organise summer holiday camps where the children meet others in the same situation and they are able to help each other in difficult circumstances. It also helps to give the parents a few days respite.
