Vanina benefit bingo raises 2,500 euros

Vanina

Recent fundraising events in aid of local resident Vanina, who suffers from chondrodystrophy, which causes serious mobility problems, have raised just over 2,500 euros.

Organised by Manilva’s Social Welfare department, the aim was to raise funds for Vanina to travel to a specialist clinic in Barcelona for assessment and possible future treatment for her condition.

Some 130 local businesses provided the prizes for the two bingo events and there is also a campaign to collect plastic bottle lids which can be dropped off at a number of locations in the municipality.
