Welcome to the Orihuela Costa and District Branch of The Royal British Legion
There seems no end to the number of charity days that are currently being organised by the kind people of the region the most recent of which was held at Flamenca Beach last Sunday afternoon in aid of both the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and the Paul Cunningham Nurses.
The event, organised by local fundraiser Eddie Coleman, was attended by yet another bumper crowd including the Councillor for Tourism and Beaches Sofia Alvarez.
During her opening address she highlighted the devotion made to such ‘good causes’ by members of the local community as well as complimenting the enthusiasm of the Torrevieja Pipes and Drums who she said seem to attend just about every one.
She also welcomed the two Chelsea Pensioners, Skippy Teasdale and Wayne Campbell, both members of the Orihuela Costa Branch of the RBL, who regularly travel out to attend such events from UK, completely at their own expense. She said how pleased she was to see them at Playa Flamenca, once again supporting a fundraising event in the local community.
The afternoon’s entertainment was provided by Sunshine FM and a dedicated band of entertainers who once again gave of their time absolutely free.
