BUMPER WEEKEND FOR MABS Mazarron!!!!
On Friday 25th October, Judy (smilealot) Carter made the trip from the UK to Murcia Spain intent on raising funds for a local charity that had been helping her father as he underwent treatment for cancer, the charity was MABS Mazarron and Judy wanted to show her appreciation for the help and support her father Bob and his family had received during his recent illness.
Judy, a single mother to five children was determined to do something that would make people want to ´dig deep´ into their pockets to raise money so she hit on the idea of having her lovely locks shaved, in public – what a very brave lady!
The chosen venue was the TREVI Bar on Camposol, with entertainment by the fabulous DJ Weeto who soon had the audience singing along to the nostalgic music of 60´s and 70´s, Judy toured the local bars and restaurants with a bucket to make sure every last penny was donated.
At the appointed hour scissor hands Sue, joint owner of TREVI started the deed, cheered on by the growing crowds. Judy was delighted with the results and thrilled when the event raised a whopping 1132.22€and there is more to come in!!!!!
Not content with that Judy, joined over 60 other energetic people for the 2013 MABS Race for Life this year we had an excellent mix of Spanish; English old and young participants all making their way around the 4km course around Camposol, several even did it twice!!!
The event is expected to raise in the region of 5,000€ which in the current economic climate is a fantastic achievement.
