Fundraising success for Paws-Patas animal shelter


THERE were lots of wagging tails at Belinda and Richard’s Kuki’s bar and restaurant in Mojacar when they kindly hosted a PAWS-PATAS quiz evening which was cleverly devised by the master Tony Matthews, who also auctioned a copy of his book about Alan Shearer which was autographed by the football player.

Belinda did a sterling job contacting local businesses for raffle prizes and many others voluntarily offered gift vouchers and goods in order to raise much needed funds for the PAWS-PATAS shelter.

Customers paid €2 to enter the quiz and Belinda and Richard kindly donated €1.50 from each main meal plus a bottle of wine to each person in the winning quiz team.

The evening raised a whopping €667 and will be used for many things which the cats and dogs require, especially much needed maintenance at the shelter and vet’s expenses.
