Help Benidorm gets requests from homeless people but there is little we can do for them except refer them to Project4All. Help according to its statues can not help peole with cash handouts, therfore we donate our excess income from donations to other local charities which assist people.

Accepting the donation is the co-founder Arne Soeten and Richard Saville (treasurer). Part of the donation was given by the British Benevolent Fund Spain. The Project strives to help the vulnerable in our society. This incredible charity; with its women’s refuge still running successfully as well as a newly established men’s house that offers support to allow people to get back on their feet and resume employment, needs constant funding. The ethos of the Project is about ‘making a change’. If you would like to be part of that change, visit the website and check out the new scheme to become a member for 10€ a month. Presenting the cheque are two of our valued and hardworking volunteers Christine Lathouders and Gerard Visser

Jean Barber treasured member of Help Benidorm

We are so very sorry to hear the heart breaking news that one of our loyal members Jean, has sadly passed away. She has been part of the fabric of HELP for so many years and was loved and respected by all. She had such a bright and appealing outlook, as well as a great sense of humour. Jean worked tirelessly keeping the ‘Euro Boutique’ up and running at our weekly meetings, raising funds for HELP. She was such a caring soul who loved to socialise with friends and colleagues alike and always looked so elegant. It is with a heavy heart that we will say goodbye to Jean on Monday (16th) at 12,30 at the Tanatoria Crematorium Marina Baixa ( Villajoasa Crematorium).

Rest in Peace our gorgeous Jean

Help Get Jack Home. The Campaign to raise funds for air ambulance was successful. Jack is now back in the UK

Jack and his mates decided to have a 3-day holiday in Benidorm. Jack has Type 1 Diabetes and what he didn’t anticipate was that his personal possessions would mysteriously disappear and he would collapse due to hypoglycemic encephalopathy and end up on ICU due to prolonged hypoglycemiae; in a coma, relying on breathing and feeding tubes to keep him alive, with possible brain damage. Jack did not declare his pre-existing condition on his insurance and for that, is paying the ultimate price. Jacks’ mum and dad have been with him every single day since it happened and now just want to take their son home and get him into Neuro rehab.

Jack’s parents organised a massive fund raising campaign to pay for an air ambulance back to the UK. The cost was over 25,000 euros. Help Benidorm was able to arrange a grant from The British Benevelont Fund in Madrid to cover part of the cost.

Jack returned to the UK and is making good progress in a rehabilitation unit in a Staffordshire hospital.
