Age Concern Fuengirola/Mijas/Benalmádena is gearing up for its annual festive fundraising campaign, which will get going in La Cala de Mijas throughout December.

The charity will set up an informative table outside Mijas town hall every Wednesday and Saturday from 11am until 2pm. Volunteers will be on hand to offer information and advice about the charity, while also selling tickets for the charity's grand Christmas hamper draw.

The two hampers, donated by Iceland Overseas and consisting of a large selection of Christmas treats, are on display in the Age Concern shop in Los Boliches.

Tickets cost one euro and can also be obtained at any of the charity's drop-in centres. The draw for the hampers will take place in the shop on 21 December.

Secretary Steve Marshall said, "Everybody can help somebody, and that's what we strive to do every day."
