Sending a HUGE thank you to Iceland Mijas Costa Staff and Customers and all who came along to help or attend our fundraiser for Tomas Leighton Care yesterday.
Thanks also to the Iceland Management for donating 50 Euros of Iceland goodies to help fill the Christmas Hamper raffle prizes and to the Funky Vocals Singing Group who entertained the customers entering and leaving the store with their melodic and fun Christmas songs.
A massive thank you to also goes to all the leaders and members of Fuengirola Cubs and Scouts for donating their time all day to cover some of the cash desks for bag packing and also assisting with the raffle ticket sales.
It was a very successful day and the total raised, including bag packing donations and raffle ticket sales, came to 1794,10 Euros!
We plan to use the funds raised towards future stem cell therapy to help Tomas to see, walk and learn better. The treatment will improve his general motor skills and movement and help him to understand the world around him in a way he is not currently able to.

The prize-winning raffle tickets were drawn by Maxine Warner of bookacorriestar.co.uk. Maxine flew from the UK specifically to help at the event and to draw the winning tickets on behalf of the TLC patron (Coronation Street Star Samia Ghadi who plays Maria Connor in the soap) who could not attend this event personally due to extensive filming commitments in the run up to Christmas
Below is a video link of the tickets being drawn yesterday evening and you will see from the video that the two winning tickets were:
WHITE 342 and WHITE 171.
The two winning tickets were claimed by Steve from Benalmadena Pueblo :

Once again, thank you to all who donated and to all those who helped make the fundraiser such an amazing success.
