Celebrating our local heroes
We have been very lucky with our life in Spain and love giving back to the community in which we live. Once again this year, Leddy Group is proud to be a sponsor of the Pride of Spain Awards which take place on 9th November at the Casa de Cultura, Benijófar. Tickets are on sale from the Costa Blanca People office in Torrevieja.
The awards recognise all the wonderful unsung local heroes doing work in the community – charities, fundraisers, animal shelters, neighbours and businesses – all of whom work towards making this community, our community, one in which we are all proud to live.
Last year, we sponsored the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ which was presented to Norah Bond, President of the Orihuela Costa Community Care Association. Norah works tirelessly to help others and it was our pleasure and honour to present her with an award recognising her hard work and determination.
This year, we are lucky enough to sponsor a new category which recognises those people carrying out the difficult, heart-warming, heartbreaking, and often thankless work with animals in this region. There is an army of volunteers here on the Southern Costa Blanca who give of their time freely to care for and rescue animals which have been abandoned or neglected. We are looking forward to meeting the finalists on the night and congratulating them in person for the work they do.
