We are fortunate to have several individuals who go that extra mile to raise funds for Age Concern but Richard Raymond is in a class of his own.
Otherwise known as “Richard the Barber” from the Jamie Males salon in Fuengirola, Richard spent several months training hard for a 70 km run through the Almeria desert. That isn’t a misprint – he really did run 70 km for the Charity in November!
This test of courage and commitment was finally rewarded when Richard raised the incredible total of 814.59€. Every cent donated will enable the Charity to purchase 6 lightweight wheelchairs for use by the older English speaking community who need our help in Fuengirola, Mijas and Benalmádena.
Age Concern provide Advice, Help, Support and Friendship to all our Clients. We continue to fight against Loneliness and Isolation that many consider part of growing old – but it doesn’t have to be. With our proactive Welfare Team and 4 social clubs we are making inroads to alleviate this unwelcome burden EVERY single day.
The marathon run may be over but the need for your financial help is always there. If you would like to support Richard’s effort and push that figure over the 1000€ barrier, please use our Donations page here.
Alternatively, pop into any of our clubs and leave a Donation with the Volunteer-in-Charge.
