Throughout December 2012, Specsavers Opticas in Marbella and Fuengirola are taking part in a Christmas charity appeal to provide food, clothing and gifts to children and families who may otherwise go without. All Specsavers stores in Spain will be acting as drop off points for donations on behalf of various local charities.
Business Development Manager, José Ángel Moral-Tajadura tells us “Supporting charitable causes this Christmas is important to us with many families on the Costa del Sol feeling the effects of the recession, not to mention children with cancer who need our help to have a happy Christmas. Our stores are passionate about their chosen charities and are all doing their bit to encourage donations.”
Specsavers Opticas in Marbella are collecting new and second hand toys for children with cancer on behalf of charity AECC (Asociación Española Contra el Cancer). AECC distribute the toys to children with cancer in hospital and at home in the Marbella area.
Specsavers Opticas Fuengirola are collaborating with their local branch of the Red Cross and collecting non-perishable food and items for babies which will be distributed to those in need over the festive period. Required items include rice, sugar, coffee, pulses, milk, pasta, tuna, toiletries, cleaning products and powdered baby milk.
Please help us make this Christmas a merry one for those in needs and put the smile back on a child’s face by making a gift or food donation. All donated gifts will then be collected by the various charities and delivered to local families for this Christmas and Three Kings.
Specsavers Marbella is located in Avenida Ricardo Soriano 12 (next to Massimo Dutti) and the Fuengirola store is on Avenida Ramon Y Cajal 6 (near the bus station).
