Uniting Communities

Yesterday a Fun Afternoon was held in Fuente de Piedra to raise funds for Asociación Girasol.

The event started at 6.00pm, but due to other commitments I arrived at a quarter past seven. I couldn´t believe what I saw! What an atmosphere! The Plaza de la Constitución was full of kids having a really great time: little faces painted as: spiderman, princesses, lions, and everything imaginable….and the games…. the jumping pigs, fishing a duck, catch the rat, and the one-armed bandit (hilarious), walk the tightrope and many others. I met a little 3 year old friend and we attempted musical chairs, but she abandoned me within a short time. I don´t think I was quite up to her standard!

Before I arrived, the tombola was sold out, and there were only a few home-made cakes left. I will never forget the face of the little boy who, by guessing the right football team, won a football.

Seeing all of this made me realise that Asociación Girasol, apart from helping terminally ill cancer patients, their families and carers, is uniting communities, and that is very, very, very, nice.

We want to thank all the Friends of Asociación Girsasol who organised the event and all of you who attended. It was a great afternoon.
