Bonfire Night Success

On Saturday 4th November many came out in the truly awful British weather to Crestatx to the Bar Paraiso, for an evening of fun, food and fireworks! The rain did stop in the end and we were able to have an amazing evening. Special thanks for the entertainment from the talents of Joe Sortino and the North’s very own piano man, Ben Wright (with a beautiful vocal performance from Saskia Ingrosso). I know that we all love living in Mallorca and embrace the Spanish culture, but every now and then it’s great to come together and be a little bit British.

Entry to the event was with a toothbrush, and a total of 382 were brought along with 32 tubes of toothpaste. Rachel Shuckburgh in Puerto Pollensa had also been collecting to support Anna Edward who will be volunteering later this month in Senegal with the charity “Dentistas Sobre Ruedas” Anna will have too many to fit in her suitcase on this visit but what she can’t take will be taken out with the next volunteer.

Many thanks to Cachi and Mari the owners of the bar for hosting this event, which was supported so wonderfully by the local community.
