News and forthcoming events at FOT
Members of the Friends Of Tenerife Committee were invited by the Red Cross to a presentation of awards in the University of Tenerife in appreciation of the help we give to the association. We were awarded a bronze medal and a certificate which was presented to our President, Ken Fisher. Some hundreds, if not thousands, of officials, helpers and members of the Red Cross were present. It was good to know that our help was so appreciated, and we shall , of course, continue to support them as we have done for some years.
Our Annual Christmas Dinner was held at the Mini-Golf Restaurant in La Paz on Tuesday 10th December, and was attended by members of the committee and some 40 or so members.There was the customary Raffle and there were many prizes including a food hamper given by Carmen, our Vice President, and a special raffle for two beautifully decorated Christmas Cakes made by Cheryl. All the money raised by our raffles etc. go to our charities who are so grateful for our continuous help.
