  • Chapel Bar in Nerja has donated 1,250 euros to Asociación Esperanza

Erica Russell-Watson collected a donation of 1,250 euros on behalf of Asociación Esperanza last Saturday from the Chapel Bar in Nerja.

Erica is a member of the Vélez-Málaga based not for profit organisation, which provides support to women with breast cancer. She said, "The association is overwhelmed by the donation especially after such a tough year."

The Chapel Bar's owner, Sharon Stevens, explained that she had raised the money through various raffles and quiz nights and "thanks to the generosity of the clients".

Sharon decided that she wanted to raise money for Asociación Esperanza because she lost her own mother to breast cancer. The bar owner added, "This is a cause close to my heart."
