Adapt San Pedro

Christmas donation

Part of the money raised by our annual Pantomime, along with individual donations, has gone towards buying something special for 21 children of various ages from needy families in the San Pedro area, via the El Samaritano association.  The girls were given pretty scarves and there were woolly hats for the boys as well as pencil and pen sets for the older children.  The two smallest children also had a teddy bear.  In addition a few Christmas goodies were added to our regular monthly food donation to these families.

Our charity coordinator Celia, helped by Jenny, have collected several bags of games, toys and colouring books which were donated to El Samaritano along with wrapping paper and cellotape for them to distribute to the children. We would like to thank all those who have contributed to putting a smile on some children’s faces this Christmas.

Moody Poopins

This year´s show was slightly different in that it was a diversion from the traditional Pantomime theme.
Moody Poopins was a comedy version of Mary Poppins and with the script in both English and Spanish to accommodate the growing Spanish audience who through ADAPT are learning to love our strange tradition of Pantomime.Moody and Bert

Jane Cronin the scriptwriter and director also played the part of Bert, the Chimney sweep. The production was produced and co-directed by Eric Berg who was Moody Poopins and what a fine specimen of woman she was.  There were some very funny sketches including a hilarious ´Cookery Demonstration´which the children throughly enjoyed, as well as videos of Moody , Bert and the children on outings to the park (Park of Nations) and to London ( La Zenia Boulevard).

The Technicians and Backstage Crew excelled as always with the highlight being a very lifelike Moody Poopins figure who ´flew´ in across the audience to much laughter and applause.

Respect must go to the whole cast and crew who put in a lot of time and effort to bring a very entertaining show each year which raises much needed funds for San Pedro Charities. This year´s Panto has raised 1,758 euros.

A special mention too to the children and teachers of Las Esperanzas School who charmed us with their dancing.

Menu del Dia on 24th September 2015

Patricia Roe celebrated her 70th Birthday at our lunch on the 24th September. Her husband Jack treated everyone to a glass of cava, not only to celebrate his wife’s 70th birthday but to also celebrate their 56th wedding anniversary which was on the following Monday.

Easter Lunch

Twelve of the eighteen ADAPT School Project volunteers met for their annual Easter lunch on March 26th in the Asia Restaurant in San Javier. It was a lovely, long lunch that was topped off with a fun quiz and prizes. John and Irene Frame joined them for coffee afterwards.  John thanked the volunteers for all their hard work in the schools and stressed how important their contribution was to both the schools and to helping achieve one of ADAPT’s key goals of promoting integration in the community.

The Project is now in its 5th year and has volunteers in four schools in San Pedro and Lo Pagan giving support in the English classes with reading, general conversation and pronunciation.
