Lux Mundi Torre del Mar

Spring events

First was the Spring Fashion show held in April which drew a large audience to watch the models on the catwalk show off some of the fashions from the boutique. Then, at the beginning of May, Lux Mundi held the Spring Bazaar and sold a variety of items including homemade cards, jewellery, jams, craft items, bric-a-brac and clothing etc. Three local authors were also present, Joan Fallon, John Hardy and Patricia Gabbitas, who were signing books. With the invaluable help from everyone involved, Lux Mundi raises funds for its charitable work.

CAP Singers

Supporting charities

After their successful charity concert in March at the Las Amigas club in Villanueva del Trabuco, the CAP singers performed at the El Paraíso Golf Club on 18 May and raised 1,020 euros for the Cudeca and Cáritas charities.

The concert was designed to commemorate the anniversary of the end of the First World War and the anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force and the songs were representative of each decade over that period of 100 years.
