The bazaar organised by the northern branch of the English-Speaking Residents Association last Sunday raised more than 4'600 euros, with the charity benefiting from this magnificent sum being the Juan XXIII school in Inca which caters for children with special teaching needs and learning difficulties. A steady stream of bargain-hunters came through the doors of the Santo Domingo Cloisters in Pollensa as people jostled to snap up the goods on offer...there was everything from pickled onions to a pushchair! The raffle and tombola stalls did a roaring trade, their tables loaded with prizes donated by local and international companies including Carrefour, Thomson Holidays, Sol Hotels, European Health Promotions, the Milar electrical chain and Viajes Siller. And crowds gathered at the bar and refreshment kiosks. Even the weather was kind as the rain held off until the bazaar closed at the end of the morning. The head teacher of the Juan XXIII school, Claudia Bauza Nicolei, came along to thank ESRA members for their efforts saying how much the help was needed and appreciated, and Ann Lilley, chairman of ESRA North, expressed her gratitude to those who had worked so hard to make it a success.
