  • The Simply Surviving charity platform will raise funds for Donkey Dreamland at the Cerros de Águila restaurant in Mijas Costa on 11 March

An afternoon of fun and games has been organised by the Simply Surviving charity platform in order to raise funds for Donkey Dreamland, a Mijas-based donkey rescue and educational centre.

The event will be held at the Cerros de Águila restaurant in Mijas Costa on 11 March. As well as a fun quiz, the afternoon will include book signings by Val Williams, former president of The Salón Varietés fundraising arm, FOTA, and Mijas councillor Bill Anderson, both of whom have recently published their memoirs.

The fun starts at midday, with book signings from 1pm, followed by the quiz at 2pm.

Those interested in the quiz, which offers a prize for the winners, are invited to enter a team of four people at a cost of one euro per person. To register, send a WhatsApp message to Alan Boardman on 610522605.

The event will be held on the restaurant's open-air terrace and Covid-19 protocols must be observed. Food and refreshments will be available. The venue also offers ample parking.

The Simply Surviving group has been created to support businesses and individuals that need help during the pandemic. The volunteer-run group has a range of future events planned to help local businesses and charities.
