Frankie’s Bar Raise the Roof for MACS
On Comic relief night, Friday 13th March, Alan and Shelly the owners of Frankie’s Bar, Vera Playa, held another fun night in aid of MACS. DJ Steve King, dressed as a pink fairy, kept the evening going with extraordinary flair making it a night to remember. Guests were dancing on the tables, Alan was dancing on his bar and The Bell Enders performed another hilarious routine with many a clanger dropped. The Tena Ladies performed one of their outrageous dance routines and there was a triumphant reading of a tongue twisting poem full of risqué spoonerisms.
The evening was sponsored by three local companies, Ibex who supplied the auction hampers, Totus Financial who supplied 100 Euros in cash for the top raffle prize and Luxury Almeria who donated an Elvis gold disc limited edition for auction. Frankie’s Bar gave the second prize of a drink per day for 90 days. Richard Shanley from Spectrum won the 100 Euros in the raffle but had left instructions that if his ticket won it was to be re drawn. The re drawn ticket was owned by DJ Steve King who then donated the 100 Euros to MACS.
All the guests gave generously and had a good time. Several very generous donations were made quietly without fuss and with sincere gratitude for the work MACS does. The Amount raised by the event was an astounding 1500 Euros.
MACS now has four shops, Albox, Mojacar, Turre and the new Huercal Overa shop which opened in November 2014. Supporting people with cancer and their relatives or carers MACS offers both practical and emotional support. It is a registered charity and as such is totally dependent upon the commitment of our unpaid volunteers and donations from the public to provide assistance when it is needed.
