Help for DYA Ambulance

A beautiful sunny day in San Pedro saw the presentation of the latest ‘DYA Ayuda en Carretera’ ambulance to the public.  The inauguration was honoured with the presence of the Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, numerous councillors and local dignitaries as well as Vicki Rhodes and Lorraine Powell who represented Rotary Club Marbella-Guadalmina.

           

Rotary Club Marbella-Guadalmina raised and donated over €2000 in a very short space of time to assist with the restocking of the fleet of 6 DYA Ambulances with necessary equipment after the dreadful fires that engulfed the local areas in the summer.  The Director  of DYA, Victor Manuel Mejías, said that “ The organisation is so proud that after 19 years this is the first ambulance that we have acquired that was not 2nd hand, and that was due to the generosity of Rotary Club Marbella-Guadalmina and the many wonderful volunteers”.  The entire cost of the ambulance will be €75000, so more fund raising events will be organised in the future.

The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, said during the presentation that without the collaboration of DYA “ a great many of the events in Marbella could not be held if it were not for the help of DYA.”

Rotary-Club Marbella Guadalmina were very honoured to receive a beautiful plaque to thank them for their collaboration presented by Ángeles Muñoz, it will definitely take pride of place during their lunch meetings!
