BENIDORM Palace is to hold two COVID-safe charity shows on Saturday, October 3, to raise funds for abused, abandoned and sick animals in the area.

The fifth SML (Save My Life) event will have the pair of reduced-capacity at 1.30pm and 6.30pm to comply with high ticket demand and Covid-19 social distancing regulations.

This year will be an International Magic Gala to raise funds for Benidorm Dog Homing, with five of Europe’s most prestigious illusionists performing, in what promises to be two tremendous back-to-back shows.

The Olive Press spoke to Christine Clement, Benidorm Palace’s British co-owner, who admitted the problem with abandoned dogs on the Costa Blanca has worsened due to COVID-19.

She revealed that people were buying dogs soon after lockdown started, purely just so that they could take in fresh air by taking them for walks.

However, Christine says that selfish owners quickly realised the task of owning a dog, and simply gave them away, left them charities or dumped them in the street.

“The problem worsened when lockdown restrictions were lifted, and the owners could get as much fresh air as they wanted, without the need for a dog,” she lamented.

Christine concluded, “It’s very safe here but if you don’t want to come, there are still ways that you can help these poor animals.”

Call the Benidorm Palace box office on 965 851 660 to buy tickets and reserve seats.
