A group of ladies from Torrevieja calling themselves “The Weigh-In Club” recently held their fifth annual event in aid of AECC Torrevieja and again surpassed their previous best figure. Based at Restaurante Casa Mia in El Chaparral the ladies raised the sum of €2065 by selling home-made cakes and holding a very profitable raffle. As in previous years. Casa Mia hosted the event but many other local businesses and supporters also provided help by donating prizes.

AECC Hospital volunteer Ann Bissett was there to collect the money from Caroline Richardson of the Weigh-in Club, donated to AECC for its battle against cancer and its help for those suffering from it. Ann thanked all the ladies present for their generosity and hard work, but also reminded the ladies of the need for regular breast cancer and cervical smear checks, which AECC can always provide.
