Sacko’s Bar in El Limonar, Torrevieja is to put on a special fundraising evening to raise money for the  Lawris Girl’s Home in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where 25 youngsters, aged between five and 15 years live. Most became orphans due to the Tsunami back in 2004. Denise Dow will host the evening, which will feature a short presentation about the orphanage, with tickets priced at seven euros available from Sacko’s Bar or from Ruth Blackwood on 687 328 621.

Fundraisers Ruth and Sharon Perry will be travelling to Sri Lanka in January to do some voluntary work at the home for a month. They will teach the girls English, generally show them love and attention and give them lots of hugs!  As the orphanage gets no government funding, Torrevieja resident Ruth and her friends back in the UK are in the process of setting up a charity to support the orphanage.

Desperately needed are toiletries, pens, pencils, toys and batteries. Ruth and Sharon also hope to raise enough money to paint the orphanage and make it more homely. The outside area also needs attention to make it more accessible to the children as a play area.
