Community Fundraiser coming soon on Saturday 20th September from 2 pm at San Miguel community center in Blue Lagoon/El Galan, Calle Pico Lobo
Ideally, a community center is exactly what it says in the name – the center of the community, a place where people in the area can come together for many different purposes.
A community center is an amazing concept where you can enjoy meeting a variation of people and make new friends, as well as learning about hidden passions and talents you may not have known you had.
At present the community center in El Galan is used only by three groups, Campoverde Theatre group, Tai chi, – a form of martial arts and a Parent and Toddler group.
The idea of the fundraiser was thought of by the mums from the parent and toddler group, which holds bi-weekly sessions run by Jenny and Zoe. The sessions are held every Wednesday and Friday at 10 am until 12 noon.
"We are hoping by holding this fundraising fete we can bring the community together and raise funds at the same time, plus we want to let other people know the center exist, as not many people know it does!
We want it to be an affordable fun afternoon for everyone!
The money raised on the day will be put towards, basic kitchen items, toddler group toys and art supplies, Storage units, and other items to make the center usable for all types of groups."
At the fete there are to be many craft stalls, Usborne children`s books, Belles Boutique Sandals, Ladies and Gent’s clothing, Jewellery, a local painter displaying his works, Hair and beauty stations, a toy shop, Bric a brac stalls, Carnival games including splat the rat and panning for gold, Pantomime characters, courtesy of Campoverde theatre group, a raffle, White elephant stall, Bouncy castles, Tom bola, cake stall, BBQ and drinks. Sunshine FM are kindly hosting the event.
Since this fete has been advertised other people have shown an interest in using the hall – the starting of a weekly youth club, a beginners Boules club and Pilate’s classes.
It is hoped that you will come along and join in the fun and help raise the funds needed to continue to provide a center that everyone in the community can benefit from, – it is sure to be a fun day out for all the family!
