AN expat charity in Duquesa is pulling out all the stops to provide the less fortunate with a Christmas to remember.
The Duquesa Charitable Society of St. George is collecting Christmas gifts for underprivileged children and supporting soup kitchens during the festive season.
Charity President Dean Shelton has called on the Costa’s expat community to get involved and give something back to Spain.
He said: “We just want to give something back to the community. Being expats, it is good to get involved with Spanish charities and good to show our appreciation of the country we live in.”
The charity has budgeted €4,000 to provide over 400 underprivileged children with a Christmas present in Manilva and Casares.
As part of the Christmas campaign, the charity has also extended its goodwill gesture to an Estepona soup kitchen.
On December 17, the charity handed over a cheque for €1,600 to the Emaus Foundation to put towards a Christmas Eve meal for 200 people.
