The Smile Charity Group that raise money for local charities through putting on shows in the area have been handing out a total of fifteen-hundred euro to local beneficiaries.

Cheques of 500 euro each were presented at Benijófar’s Plaza de la Constitución to the  Benijófar Crisis Appeal, Torrevieja Stroke Support, and the Elche Children’s Home.

Smile is dedicated to supporting local charities,  and have raised over 14,000 euro for local charities over the last three years. Sadly, Smile’s latest touring production scheduled for this month, and as previewed in The Courier in November, has had to be postponed due to the death of one of the cast members. The Group hope to restage the show in the New Year.
