We are very disappointed to tell you that our charity tin in Capt Morgan's Bar, Eagle's Nest was stolen on Sunday. The empty tin has been recovered and Jane has video footage of the culprit which we have asked her to give to the police.
Our income from charity tins since the pandemic started has been severely depleted so this is even more disheartening. We would therefore ask all businesses with any charity tins to be especially vigilant. ... See MoreSee Less

WOW! WOW! “THE TRUE MEANING OF SHARING IS CARING”.
This year for many people it has been a difficult year, something like we have never experienced before. We the Volunteers for the Charity like many charities had our concerns about Christmas for the children, these concerns have been washed away by many wonderful selfless people being so kind and caring.
Recently one of our volunteers Viv visited Emma at the Food Company in Quesada. (The Food Company since opening have supported Elche Children's Home Charity by having collection tins on the counters and a shopping trolley for collecting non perishable donations that help feed the children.) Viv was overwhelmed when she made this visit as there was an absolute mountain of Christmas selection boxes that had kindly been donated by the staff and customers whilst they were on special offer.
Because of the size of the donations, there were more than ample for our children in the home, plus we try to help the staff at the home keep the children healthy. The decision was made to share some of the chocolates between other Charities and needy families that rely on food bank donations.
We have shared and donated to date to the following San Jose Obero, Algorfa Food Bank Drop Off Point The Tavern Lo Crispin, Help Vega Baja, Help the Aged Benijofar, Asociación de Ayuda de San Fulgencio to name but a few. Donations will continue with the hope that the kindness shown by everyone concerned will put smiles on many children's faces along with the faces of their families and help them feel that people do care as it will add a little glimmer of happiness into their lives when times are so difficult.
On behalf of Elche Children's Home Charity a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Emma for this initiative, to Viv for all the lifting and shifting, to anyone that has contributed towards putting a smile on someone else's face and giving us the opportunity to do this. ... See MoreSee Less
