The Duquesa Charitable Society of St George organised a campaign, for the second year running, to provide gifts for underprivileged children in Manilva, Casares and Estepona, which resulted in over 476 children receiving gifts for Three Kings this year.
In collaboration with the Social Services departments of Manilva and Casares town halls, and the Emaus social kitchen in Estepona, who identified those children in greatest need, the charity put together gift bags for 330 children in Manilva; 56 in Casares; and 90 in Estepona.
The money was raised through a number of events, donations from businesses in Spain and Gibraltar, as well as contributions from the general public, and through the Association’s charity shop.
Whilst there are too many contributors to thank them all individually, The St George Charity would like to extend their gratitude to Quest Insurance Management (Gibraltar) Limited, Trafalgar Pharmacy in Gibraltar, the Staff at RBS and Nat West banks in Gibraltar, Steve Cheshire, Hairy Lemon in Sotogrande, Jojo France, Cathy Aabø and her parents, The Bookshop in Sabinillas, Henry at SuperAsia, Ibex Insurance, and Michael Black.
