Margaret Ash accepting the cheque for €1,000, on behalf of Raquel Paya Special School, from President Georgie Harvey

The Original Charity Shop and Library presented a cheque for €1,000 to Margaret Ash on behalf of the Raquel Paya School for children with special needs, Denia, to help finance their school trip to Barcelona this spring. Besides organising Santa’s visit and present giving to the children every year, the Original Charity Shop and Library have been providing much needed equipment to the school for the past 25 years, such as: a hydrotherapy pool, air conditioning in the classrooms, a training kitchen, video equipment, a new floor in the assembly room, special bicycles, mattresses and much more essential equipment which has helped to make life easier for the children, the dedicated teachers and carers who do such a brilliant  job. Every year the Original Charity Shop and Library also help to finance a school trip for the children: a spa trip, a ski- or snow trip or a city visit such as this year’s trip to Barcelona.
