I’ve hardly been back to work five minutes and I am already up to my neck in community events and things to do, heigh ho. So here, in no particular order, are a few things for you to get yourself along to if you can.
Europeos Por España (EPORE) will be starting their autumn programme soon. There is going to be a talk on Wednesday October 15th at 18.30 at the Botel Alcudiamar in the Port of Alcudia. The speaker (who will present in English) will be Senor Antonio Deudero. He is the Director General of the Regional Government for Ports and Airports. It is free to go along but the group does like to know if you are going so please send an email to email@example.com
My friends Anthea and Julian De Freitas are organising a dinner dance in Andratx at the Cultural Centre on October 24th in aid of the Cancer Support Group. It sounds like a great evening has been planned. The dress code is a touch of pink. The tickets are on sale for 50€ per person including drinks, three course dinner with wine, dancing to live music, a DJ, auction and raffle. You can reserve your tickets on 647 613 570.
It’s been ten years since LACE (which stands for Ladies’ Alliance of Communication and Enterprise) was founded. In the past year or so there has been little activity due to some changes within the running of the group; however it is planned that on Friday October 31st there will be a lunch meeting for any members old or new, and any women interested in joining a group for social and business networking purposes. So if you want to find out more and put your name down you can get in touch with me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
And one that you might have missed: a week ago last Friday there was a fantastic fundraising event, Mallorca’s Biggest Coffee Morning organised by the 41 Club and held at Mood Beach in Costa D’en Blanes. It was in aid of the Cancer Support Group, En Lazo de Movimiento and the Micky Heart Pillow Project. Many cakes were brought and entered in the five different categories: Best Chocolate, Sponge, Fruit, Decorated and Cup Cake. The judges had a tough time deciding but in the end they presented awards to the best bakers. The prizes were generously donated by local businesses Nice Price Supermarket, Bodhana Wellness, The Country Club Santa Ponça, Mood Beach Bar and Restaurant and Son Amar Dinner Show. There was also a “Guess the Weight of the Cake” competition, the winner was Jackie Codd from Age Concern who promptly re-donated the cake which was auctioned off to a hungry crowd. The great news is that 1800€ were raised for the good causes. Well done to everyone.
