La Sala admits it could lose €6 million this year due to coronavirus lockdown

ONE of Marbella’s top restaurants is hosting a fundraising lunch for expat photographer David Toms, who was tragically paralysed following a motorbike accident.

The €50 ticket will get you cava on arrival, a two-course lunch, a €10 gift drinks voucher at La Sala and front row seats to a fashion show.

There will also be raffle prizes and live performances, while a diamond necklace will also go up for auction at La Sala, in Puerto Banus on June 8.

€10 from each ticket will be donated to David’s Fund.

Toms, who took photos for numerous events and publications on the coast for years, was paralysed when his bike hit a patch of sand, leaving him a quadriplegic.

After six weeks in the intensive care unit in Málaga, he was transferred to a specialist spinal injury hospital in Toledo where his progress was fast.

He has since been removed to a specialist centre in Granada and regained some movement in parts of his body.

For more information email [email protected] or purchase at La Sala directly. Alternatively call 648490919 to arrange a meeting to point to collect tickets.
