As you know, we’ve had a wealth of charitable help and donations in the run up to Christmas – but it doesn’t stop there. Please look at the Events Calendar for all the upcoming charity occasions, your chance to enjoy yourselves and help the charities – brilliant idea! Remember that resolution to get fit? Now is the time to get into training for the Loving Arms Fun Run/Walk on 01 March – you have been warned!
Our cruising community really kicked in to donate toys for the kids at Manos De Amor for their Three Kings Day 06 January (plus one). The grand unwrapping was held at Marina Riviera Nayarit, at La Cruz. After hot dogs donated by the deli based there, and only a token amount of candy – hurray! – the 27 attending kids had their names called out to receive the presents especially nominated for them by their age/gender. What an amazingly patient crowd of youngsters! The most favourite presents were the footballs and the wristwatches for the boys, and the dress the dolls and hand puppets for the girls… but everyone loved having a present – of course! The idea for next year to save cost/waste of wrapping paper – give the presents inside the backpack – which they can then use for school. Another brilliant idea!
Well done and big thanks to everyone!
