Belated Entry :- Fund Raising by ALA

viv-balloonsThe Asociacion de Los Amigos based at Torrox Park ran several events last week to raise funds for the BBC Sport Relief week.  They raised at total of €1,264

through various sponsored events and other activities over the course of the week.    Well done to everyone who supported us!
dog & heartsTAIL Torrox Wonderful Help from & for Volunteers !!

cartoon-dog120524 Following the increase in overseas volunteers coming to help at the Tail Refuge, for whom we have to provide accommodation, we were thrilled to acquire at an advantageous price (and with thanks to Tail Buddies for their €700 donation to part fund) a good condition caravan. This was collected by John & Alex (Men with Vans – 602 438 130 / 636 121 289) from Almayate and towed into position yesterday. We wish to put on record our Charity’s thanks for their goodwill and help. Tail appreciates all the help it receives, be it from volunteers undertaking work in the Refuge or the shops, or from donations received. Now might be a good time to let all know that the Junta’s official vet for this region recently called Tail’s Refuge “probably one of the cleanest in Andalucía”. We try…… we try very hard.

Services Needed –Water Supply

I hope you can help with this.  The water supply to the house via a deposito is cutting off after a while.  A new pump has been fitted, a valve in the deposito has been replaced.  I need to keep going out to the pump fill the reservoir to pump water into the house.  It seems to be baffling the guy who fitted all this stuff.   The pressure is low and starts to trickle and stops.

TC-ME smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
