SAMM Raise Money for AMMA at Los Alcázares Caldero Day – October 2015
The ‘Dia de Caldero’ is an annual ‘fiesta’ held on the beaches of Los Alcázares and greatly enjoyed by the Spanish and ex-pat residents alike. For the last few years SAMM (the Sailing Association Mar Menor) has participated. In 2015 it was held on October 12th, a beautiful day, weather wise, for the occasion.
Willing volunteers erected the SAMM marquee early in the morning and during the day at least 100 members of SAMM, many dressed as ‘Pirates’, arrived to enjoy the celebrations. Drinks were provided by the SAMM Social Committee free of charge and other refreshments were delivered to the marquee by Shoestring members in one of their Gamba dinghies. SAMM member Nilam Wright provided a delicious curry for those who wanted a hot dish while other members cooked their own food on the BBQ’s provided.
During the day Raquel Peña, the President of AMMA (Association Mar Menor Alzheimers) was presented with a cheque for 1255€ raised by the SAMM Charity race in held in June.
