BRITISH expats on the Costa del Sol have hosted a re-launch of their Alzheimer’s and Dementia support charity shop.
The ADSI event, at the shop in Sabinillas, was attended by mayor of Manilva and the area’s British councillor Dean Tyler Shelton.
President of ADSI, Jacquie Claxton-Smith, told the Olive Press that she is now looking forward to ‘raising more awareness’ of the disease.
She said: “Everybody needs to know that we are here in Sabinillas, if they need help, then we can help them.
“We want everybody to be more aware of how important it is to care for your neighbours and to let somebody know.”
Jacquie, who is originally from East London, runs the charity with her friends Claire, who is the secretary, and Rebecca, who is treasurer.
The grand re-opening of the shop saw a huge new sign installed, and the public were invited in to browse the fantastic range of second-hand goods on offer.
