Friends of Tenerife
The summer is with us and our swallows have flown but we are still getting good numbers at our luncheons. Both the June visit to the popular Petit Los Angeles and the July luncheon in Bodeguita Algarrobo were fully attended, the latter having opened especially for us.
A big success has been our coach trip to the south at the end of June which we had used as a promotion by charging €8 per head for a couple of hours free time in El Medano followed by a quick visit to the Iceland supermar-ket in Las Chafiras to buy some English treats, then back home “in time for tea”. Because it was so well received we are repeating the trip on Tuesday, August 29th with the slight change that the cost will be 8 euros for members and 10 euros for non-members.
Talking of trips to the south of the island, we would like to report our appreciation of the fine efforts of Sylvie and Tim who have just sold their Rendezvous Bar in Victoria Court 2, Los Cristianos. Over the last few years they have raised thousands of euros for our charities. We wish them much health and happiness and hope to see them at one of our functions in the near future.
This time Ken Fisher is on the receiving end with Sylvie handing over the FOT Collection Box.
