Amigos de Gillian Banks is a registered associacion which raises funds for underprivileged children at Guaidyl in Granadilla and El Valito in El Fraile. The asociación is fully legal and what we would understand as a charity in the proper sense of the word (see HERE), and helps these children with vocational and educational training and support. They are hosting their first ever Summer Ball this year, and it will be from 7.30pm on 7 June at Cueva El Campesino in Aldea Blanca: tickets costing €30 are now available by phone at (0034) 619 180 156. There are also further sponsorship deal opportunities for those who would like to support the charity as explained on the poster below (click to see full size).
