DSC_0976Kim & Steve’s “The Pub” in Puerto Rico has again this year led the field in raising awareness and funds for local Breast Cancer Association the ACCM, ahead of this year’s International Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Their now annual “Coffee Morning” event was a rip-roaring success with the venue packed out from 10 o’clock in the morning, with many people bringing home-made cakes, sausage rolls, quiche and a whole host of other treats and baked goods which they donated to the event, with participants donating for each delicious piece they scoffed.

With our own event, The Long Walk, fast approaching, there is now even talk of a second sponsored walk from Puerto Rico to Amadores to be held on Oct 17th, in the run up to the Playa del Inglés Camina Contra Cancer due to happen on the following day.  Those of you who have followed over the last few years will know that The Long Walk was born directly from  Kim’s first sponsored walk back in 2012.  We hope that comes together! :) Read the rest of this entry →

September 23, 2014 in Sunshine by The Canary

Here's to The Kind HeartedIn just four minutes you will see that your faith in humanity really can be restored… the kind hearted are not usually the ones who are demanding donations. They are often the last to ask for help themselves.
