Fundraising success for Cudeca
I and the other members of the rock/pop group GU!R! would like to say a huge thank you to all those who attended the Cudeca Aid fund raiser in Sayalonga on Sunday evening. The weather held out and enabled us to raise €1922! A sterling effort by the entire team at Jocavi restaurant saw 112 people being fed and watered. We are also grateful to the many local businesses who kindly donated prizes for the raffle including Catamarantours.es (Caleta), Talleres Simon (Velez), Becky and the team at The Cottage restaurant (Nerja), Bolo’s Peluqueria dog grooming (Torrox), Mick Slee (The Town Fryer – Puente), Donna Monroes hairdressers (Nerja), and the many donations by individuals who helped us raise €862 in the raffle alone. A fabulous evening enjoyed by all. Nigel.

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”

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
