Council welcomes Holi dontations


Recently Prakash Udhwani and Margaret and Mike Marshall, all members of the Tenerife Sur Lions Club, visited the Adeje Council offices to hand over two cheques to the Asociación San Jose and the Los Olivos Centre for Special Needs.
The councillor with responsibility for the elderly and people with special needs, Carmen Rosa González Cabrera, and social welfare councillor Amada Trujillo Bencomo said they were very grateful for the donation and congratulated the work of the association.
The money was raised during the very colourful and fun-filled Holi Mela Hindu event that was held in the Fañabe Plaza. This celebration of Indian culture was also a fund raiser, with the guests invited to pay for a plate of paella and a soft drink.
Prakash Undhwani thanked those who worked to make the event a success, including the Havana Chic Lounge Club, Gourmetland, the Association Hindu Tenerife South and the Tenerife Sur Lions.
Councillor Carmen Rosa said it was wonderful to see the level of involvement by the Lions and the Hindu community, adding “I would like to thank them and congratulate the associations involved for the solidarity they are demonstrating for people who are seriously in need during these difficult times”. She also invited the Lions representatives to visit the two centres to see the excellent work they do and see how their donations are being used .
