Stroke Support and Animalistas Torrevieja receive money from Torrevieja Flower Club
Torrevieja Councillor Carmen Morate has informed that a group of British citizens who are in the Torrevieja Flower Club have made a double donation to two local charities: Stroke Support and Animalistas Torrevieja, which both received a cheque for €1,500
The club members explained they decided to help these charities financially for the great work they do in the community each day.
Stroke Support has been active since 2007 and was located in municipal premises in La Siesta. they have professional personnel who provide rehabilitation, advice and help to by orthopaedic beds or wheelchairs. This is indispensable help for those elderly foreign residents who have health and mobility problems.
Animalistas Torrevieja was founded in 2012 when volunteers started helping at the municipal dog pound. now they manage the adoptions and volunteering at the shelter, as well as the sterilisations, foster homes and taming the animals.
Torrevieja Flower Club organises flower arranging competitions with judges from the UK. It is known for the generous donations it regularly makes. Morate explained that its members are now getting older themselves and organise less activities but stressed the value of their work and encouraged people to visit their Facebook page.
