Every year we receive donations from the members of clubs and associations as well as individuals who wish to show their appreciation for the work that we do and thus enable us to continue our voluntary work.
The pandemic doesn't stop Pauline
Not being able to organise her usual fund-raising fiesta, Pauline and her faithful team of helpers have been undeterred. They have held a raffle which has raised money for our association of voluntary interpreters as well as the Asociación Esperanza, which offers invaluable support for women with breast cancer. Here's a link to their facebook page: www.facebook.com/aesperanzacm/ . Many thanks, as usual, to Pauline and her team for the generous donation of 550€. Oh, the hats? ... it was Royal Ascot Ladies' Day!
Donation from Maureen Elmes (February 2021)
Maureen's husband, Geoff, sadly passed away in December 2020 after a long illness during which, as many of the interpreters will remember, he maintained a positive attitude and a cheerful disposition. Friends and family of Geoff made donations totalling €500 for our association. We thank them all for their generosity and extend to Maureen our most sincere condolences.
The Phoenix Club in Torre del Mar donates 750€ to AVISA
We are most grateful once again to receive such a generous donation for which we thank all the members of the PHOENIX CLUB.
We were sad to hear of the death of their chairman, Ken, who will be sadly missed by all those who knew him.
PAULINE KENNEDY DOES IT YET AGAIN
For the fourth year running, Pauline has organised a fund raising event for our benefit. This year she and her helpers have raised the staggering amount of 2635 euros for our association. The event, held in Nerja on January 12, was a total success - good food, brilliant entertainment and excellent company. Everyone clearly had a fantastic time. Many thanks to Pauline for her efforts on behalf of all the interpreters, as well as all the people who benefit from our voluntary service. Thanks also to all her helpers, the entartainers and all those who attended the event.

FUND RAISING EVENT ORGANISED BY PAULINE KENNEDY IN NERJA 2017
Once again Pauline has organised a fund raising event among the residents of Nerja on behalf of AVISA, (the association of voluntary health interpreters in the Axarquia). The event was a great success, with excellnte live music and food. We all had an absolutely brilliant time. Pauline (and her team of helpers) raised an amazing amount of 1,890 euros. This money will be used to cover our administrative costs and to make a contribution to the travel expenses of all the 32 voluntary interpreters. Once again we express our thanks to Pauline and her team for helping to support a service which many foreigners, both tourists and residents, are so grateful for.

Donation from Pauline Kennedy (Nerja) 2016
This year Pauline has organised yet another event with live music so as to raise funds for AVISA. Last year she donated a very generouse amount (see below) but this year she has really surpassed herself - raising a total of 2,100 euros! Some 180 people attended - most of them British, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the live performances by The Jersey Boys and the delightful Jordana. This is the poster for the event: Pauline.pdf (877,7 kB)
Here we would like to repeat our most sincere thanks to Pauline and her team of helpers who worked so hard to achieve such a generous donation and, of course, all those who attended.

DONATION FROM PAULINE KENNEDY 2014
In December 2014 we received an impressive donation (€1247) from Pauline Kennedy who, together with a group of friends, organised an evening of soul music in Nerja to raise funds for AVISA. The event was organised in a very short time, and so required the collaboration of a number of people (among them: Rena Dunne, Lynda Stephenson and Sheila Taylor). To all who helped with the preparations, cleaning, selling of raffle tickets, etc, we express out thanks.
