Saturday 26th November saw the Gran Alacant Ladies host a fundraising Christmas Fayre in aid of SAT Animal Rescue. The event was held at the Sueno Azul Restaurant Avenida Mediterraneo in glorious sunshine and beneath beautiful blue skies. 

SAT has been the chosen charity of the group for the past year with donations 

being collected through raffles at social lunches each month.

Fundraising lead Claire Williams says “our members are asked to identify chosen local charities each year and are then asked to vote for one to be our nominated charity for the year. SAT was the chosen charity for 2022 and we are currently in the process of accepting nominations for our new charity for 2023. Our own members created most of the items for the Christmas Fayre as they are an extremely talented bunch of individuals. The Christmas Fayre alone raised in excess of 750 euros for the charity and 

our grand total for the year looks to be in excess of 1,500 euros.”

Fundraising is just one of the many activities under the wide umbrella of the GALs group. Monthly lunches, coffee mornings, weekly walks, craft sessions and days out form part of the community set up primarily as a support network for ladies of all backgrounds and nationalities living in and around Gran Alacant.
