What´s On

Fundraising and Social Events


It was felt that it was in everybody´s interest at this time to cancel the film due to be shown on Saturday 14th March, and show it on the next occasion, scheduled for 25th April. We will keep you advised if this is going ahead.

An Easter Raffle is being organised by Benalmadena for the Chaplaincy and tickets are available now. Offers of prizes will be most welcome!
