Over the past few weeks there have been a number of fundraising events in and around the Orihuela Costa area in aid of Kathryn Osmond, including crazy golf, a massively successful fun day at cc Rioja, a great day’s golf at Vistabella and an impressive auction at Alioth Irish Bar.

Between them these events have raised an amazing 3957,23 euros – a very impressive amount of money.

Kath and her family have now – partly as a result of this – reached their target of seventy thousand pounds so she can have the much needed treatment (Tumour Invading Lymphocytes) to help her beat the advanced malignant melanoma that she has been suffering from.

But all this would not have been possible without the help of a number of hard working individuals who freely gave up their time to organise and run the events and Kath wanted to thank them all. These include all the entertainers on both days – Luke Wilder, Adrian Hyde, The Covers Brothers, Gavin James, Harry Waters, Ed Temple and the Terri Horvath Dancers – all the staff at Gossip Bar on  Rioja centre and the Alioth Irish Bar Playa Flamenca, all the volunteers who manned the stalls but most of all she wanted to express her sincere thanks to the four people most responsible for arranging everything – Graeme from Canal Print Rioja, Gavin and Paula from Albatross Golf and above all her father, John. Without their almost tireless work none of this would have been possible.

Finally of course thanks must go to the good people who turned out on those days, put their hands so generously in their pockets and donated the money which enabled her to reach her target.
