The charity/association was formed in November 2017 and the shop first opened December 5th 2017
Month by month and year by year we have established a positive presence in Los Belones and the wider community amongst the English and Spanish communities. The shop is often the local meeting point!
2023 has seen us grow significantly with the Children's Projectnow beingan established part of Yo Encuentro and 2024 we will see further growth as more and different needs are identified.
50 cent Food Bank campaign
During 2024 we are looking to raise a regular amount of at least €600 per month to support the El Buen Samaritano Food Bank in Cartagena. They provide a weekly food parcel for over 600 families and more are on the waiting list.
This regular donation was started some 20 years ago by LMC Owners Charity to provide fresh chicken on a regular basis to the hundreds of families in poverty in the Cartagena region. We need to find new people to increase the giving to €1000 per month as food prices continue to rise.
Most of us would not miss 50 cents, but that would add up over time.
This fundraising would also benefit the other causes we support through Yo-Encuentro and The Children’s Project, including our own Food Bank supplying local families in need.
· As a local business would you host a collection box?
· As an individual would you donate your “shrapnel?”
· As an individual would you be willing to give a monthly donation of €5,10 or €20.
