Paws Patas WOWed by donation

DONATION: Shirley (Burt) Valentine presenting Kris Wessels-Coles, Treasurer of PAWS-PATAS, with €300. 

Women on Wednesday (WOW), an established meeting group in Mojacar, has donated €300 to PAWS PATAS’ urgent Quarantine Unite fund.

WOW is one of the most established woman’s meeting groups in Mojacar.

It was formed many years ago but started to crumble until Shirley (Burt) Valentine decided to resurrect this forum in September 2017. And recently, the animal charity PAWS-PATAS was the chosen charity to receive €300 from the group’s weekly raffle which raises money for local charities.

The money is a great chunk towards the fundraising appeal for the vital Quarantine Unit, which they need €10,000 to build at their shelter.

Head of WOW Shirley has lived in Mojacar for three years and is passionate about bringing people together.

She is so happy to see the group growing and flourishing with friendship.

Shirley views the group as an opportunity for women of all ages to come together and make new friends; become part of the community and promote local businesses and interests.

Shirley joked: “One can get fed up talking with the husband – it can be refreshing to share with other women!”

There is no registration fee but please bring something to add to the raffle table. WOW meets every Wednesday at the Roof Garden Restaurant in Parque Commercial, Mojacar from 2pm until 4pm.

Each week there is a specialised subject with a guest speaker which can range from financial advice, painting, skin care and more.

For further information please visit their Facebook page – Women on Wednesday/Mojacar or go to the top floor at the Parque Commercial and get details from The Roof Garden Restaurant. Visit
