AN Ascot Ladies day has helped raised thousands of euros for a Costa del Sol domestic violence charity.
The event at Marbella’s popular Boardwalk restaurant saw around 100 expats and locals don their best dresses, while they sipped on champagne and enjoyed a three-course meal.
All sales from tickets went to the Amusuvig charity, which helps families affected by domestic abuse.
In total €4,650 was raised thanks to the added help of raffles and the sale of clothes after a fashion show, arranged by owner Kara Jane Caradas and friend Sera Jane.
“The charity is very close to my heart, I want these women to feel they have support when their families turn against them for speaking out, which happens so often,” said Caradas.
“I want the children to grow up in a healthy environment”.
The money raised will help pay for a 24-hr helpline and for the children to have access to a psychologist.
