VULNERABLE people in Marbella enjoyed a decent meal thanks to the generosity of Specsavers Ópticas.
The city’s branch of the opticians donated 100 hot meals, working together with Sofia Restaurante. The popular opticians was able to provide complete meals, with fresh and healthy produce, to members of the community who are struggling in these difficult times.
The charity Caritas and the association Hermandad Cristo del Amor put together a list of recipients who needed support. Antonio Belón, Teniente Hermano Mayor of the association was very happy to receive the donations. Councillor José Eduardo Diaz commended Specsavers Ópticas for their generosity.
Director of Specsavers Ópticas Marbella, Nerea Galdos-Little, was delighted to support such a worthy cause, ‘We know that times are hard for many at the moment and we wanted to do our bit for our community,’ she says. ‘I was delighted to be able to donate the hot meals and to support a local business to achieve our aim of assisting those people in Marbella who have been adversely affected by the pandemic. It was such a pleasure to fund this important cause and to work alongside Sofia and Lola from Sofia Restaurante to prepare these meals and we look forward to working together on more charitable initiatives in the future.’
