British association has 1,400 members in the Vega Bajahelp torrevieja reopening

Councillor Carmen Morate inaugurated the Torrevieja headquarters of the British non profit association HELP, with its president Michele Masson, on Tuesday.

Morate said the reopening of this office on Rambla de Juan Mateo, 4, is the start of a new chapter in which there will be close collaboration with the Town Hall thanks to its proximity to the OARI (Office for Attention to International Residents) in the Plaza de Capdepont and the large number of volunteers they have.

“In this way we are going to work together,” she said.

Masson explained that they have been working in Torrevieja for 35 years and she was “delighted to reopen the offices and collaborate with the Town Hall to benefit all the people who need help”.

She also explained they have about 1,600 members, of whom 1,400 live in the county of the Vega Baja. “We're very lucky to have so many people who help them and thanks to whom we managed to collect €26,000 last year which was donated to organisations and people who needed it,” she assured.

HELP's activities include groups who visit ill people in hospitals, a friendship group for people who live alone, help groups for diabetics or Parkinson's disease sufferers, a social worker, a lawyer, a Spanish conversation group, handicraft classes etc, and they are open to any suggestion or request that people may have.

People who need help are welcome at this office, which is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am-1:30pm, with the intention to open every day when they get more volunteers. More information can also be obtained by telephoning 966 723 733 or the website www.helpvegabaja.com, their Facebook page or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
