Sabinillas Street Party raises over 1,300 euros for charity

Sabinillas Street Party

Hundreds of people turned out on a sunny Saturday May 25 to celebrate the Sabinillas Street Party which raised 1,312.25 for the Duquesa Charitible Society of Saint George.

The event, which was held in lieu of the Saint Patrick’s Day party cancelled due to bad weather, was organised by local businesses O’Callaghans, La Barca, D’s Bar and Graingers in collaboration with Manilva’s Foreign Residents Department, and the Duquesa Charitible Society of Saint George.

A packed day of events included a mini market, barbecue, and a great line up of entertainment with performances by local musicians – Phil Evans, Pete Black, Andrew Charles, Daniella Caballero, Mick Shenton, Clive Live, Gary Fearon, The Lia Mullins Dancers, Mandy L, Sam Oliver, and Mitch Jansen, all of whom gave their services for free.

One of the highlights of the afternoon was Rafael Mayor’s recreation of the Southern Comfort advert, complete with Speedos and sunglasses, which raised over 150 €!

Other fund raisers included: T-shirt sales, tombola, cake sale, market stalls, etc.

The organisers wish to thank all those, too many to name individually, who contributed their time and efforts to making the Sabinillas Street Party such a great success.
