The day started with a parade by the Torrevieja Pipes and Drums leading the way. This was followed by standards of the Branch, the Royal Naval Association, the Royal Marines Association and the Royal Air Force Association. The highlight of the parade was heralded by the Chelsea Pensioners from London who came over especially for the event.   All association members then marched to the Emerald Isle.

Ladies of F.A.C.E St Georges Quiz

 

The ladies of F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) organised a fabulous quiz night using St George as the theme.

The quiz was held at the Bar Kubatin underneath the Hostel Meson in Arboleas.

The quizmaster, David Cundy, devised 50 questions almost all of which related to St George, and included questions on sport, geography, general knowledge and literature.

FACE SGD Quiz 1

Eighteen teams of between four and six persons entered the event. The winners of the Wooden Spoon was a team representing Albox Insurance led by Glen and Jayne Urwin. The winning team was called Partaloa Players and they won 50€.

In addition to the quiz there was also a raffle for prizes that had been donated by some of F.A.C.E.’s supporters and sponsors. The charity would like to thank all their sponsors on the night. They were Smooth FM Radio, Angels Nursing Group, Sol Yoga Centre and Avalon Europe who all sponsored one of the quiz rounds. Raffle prizes were donated by Anne Morton, Zoe West, Lorraine Cundy and Albox Insurance.

The main aim was of course to raise money for the various charities which F.A.C.E. supports on an ongoing basis. In this they were very successful raising just over 500€.
