Prostate Cancer

Learn the facts and recognise the symptoms By Dr Amy Simpson, PhD Cancer Research UK

What is the Prostate?

The prostate is a small gland located just below the bladder in males, surrounding the upper part of the urethra. It is part of the male reproductive system and secretes a number of important enzymes. In healthy males, the prostate gland is approximately the size and shape of a walnut.

Prostate Cancer

Like all cancers, cancer of the prostate develops when a single cell within the gland begins to multiply uncontrollably and forms a mass of cells, collectively called a tumour. The tumour can then restrict the normal bodily functions in the area in which it has grown and cause multiple health problems. It is also possible for some of the cancer cells to break away from the primary tumour and start secondary tumours in other parts of the body.

Spotting the Symptoms

Although the following symptoms can be a sign of prostate cancer, they can also be caused by other, not so serious, health problems. So if you do suffer from any of the symptoms below, it is important not to panic, but also just as important to get checked by your doctor.

• Difficulty or pain in passing urine • Having to rush to the toilet to pass urine • Frequent visits to the toilet, especially at night • Starting and stopping while urinating • Dribbling urine • Feeling of not having emptied the bladder fully

Less commonly: • Blood in the urine or semen • Impotence • Pain in the back, hips or pelvis

Going to the DoctorsT..

Although a trip to the doctors regarding this sort of problem can be awkward, it should be a fairly straight forward visit. The doctor will ask you about your symptoms and may suggest a blood test to investigate the level of a prostate specific antigen or PSA (a protein produced by the prostate), in you bloodstream. High levels of this protein can indicate prostate cancer but other diagnostic tests will also be carried out for confirmation before complete diagnosis. The doctor may also do a physical examination to see if the prostate is enlarged. More Information and Useful Contact Numbers: Prostate UK 020 8877 5840 www.prostateuk.org

www.cancerhelp.org.uk

No Need to Panic! Many cases of prostate cancer can be treated without long lasting damage to your health and some even remain untreated in healthy men for years and sometimes the cancer will out live the patient. Over 80% of 80 year old men have prostate cancer and can live quite healthily with it. Health and Happiness to All! Baywatch 2010

La Página de Salud Cáncer de Próstata

Obtenga información y reconozca los síntomas ¿Qué es la Próstata?

La próstata es una glándula pequeña situada justo debajo de la vejiga de los hombres, que rodea la parte superior de la uretra. Forma parte del sistema reproductor masculino y segrega una serie de importantes encimas. En varones saludables, dicha glándula tiene aproximadamente el tamaño y la forma de una nuez.

Cáncer de Próstata

Como todos los cánceres, el de próstata se desarrolla cuando una célula dentro de la glándula empieza a multiplicarse de forma incontrolable y forma una masa de células, que se conoce como tumor. El tumor puede restringir las funciones corporales normales en la zona de crecimiento y puede causar diversos problemas de salud. También es posible que algunas de las células cancerígenas se separen del tumor primario y empiecen a formar tumores secundarios en otras partes del cuerpo. Reconocer los Síntomas Aunque los siguientes síntomas pueden ser indicadores de un cáncer de próstata, podrían haber sido causados por otros problemas de salud menos serios. Así que si padece alguno de los síntomas siguientes, es importante no perder la calma y que su médico le haga un chequeo: • Dificultad o dolor al orinar • Tener que ir corriendo al servicio a orinar • Ir al servicio con mucha frecuencia, especialmente por la noche • Arranques y paradas a la hora de orinar • Gotear orina • Sensación de no haber vaciado la vejiga por completo Síntomas menos comunes: • Sangre en orina o semen • Impotencia • Dolor en la espalda, caderas o pelvis

Ir al MédicoT.. Aunque una visita al médico por este motivo pueda resultar un tanto embarazosa, debería tratarse de una visita bastante simple. El médico le hará preguntas acerca de los síntomas y es posible que sugiera un análisis de sangre para ver el nivel en sangre de un antígeno prostático específico (proteína producida por la próstata). Niveles elevados de esta proteína son indicadores de cáncer de próstata aunque se realizarán otras pruebas para poder confirmar dicho diagnóstico con total seguridad. También es posible que el médico realice una exploración para comprobar si la próstata ha aumentado de tamaño.

Aunque no hay que asustarse....ya que en muchos casos no es necesario tratar durante muchos años el cáncer de próstata en pacientes sanos e incluso a veces el cáncer puede durar más tiempo que el propio paciente. Más del 80% de varones de 80 años padecen de cáncer de próstata y pueden vivir con éste de una manera bastante saludable. Salud y Felicidad para Todos

R A D I O BAY W ATC H ! by Colin Wood, Station Manager

The Radio Baywatch Internet Radio Station trial will launch at 10am on the 1st April, and no this is not an April Fool joke. We will be broadcasting a live breakfast show on this date to kick start the station and thereafter we hope to run from 10am to 10pm each day until the end of April with a wide variety of continuous music to suit all tastes. OK, so why are we doing this and how do you listen? Well it's fun, it's entertaining and we aim to link our part of Spain with the UK and the rest of the world. The station will primarily be for our community and will involve local people. We will be marketing the station actively in the UK and will be broadcasting a number of shows which will forge close ties with listeners here and abroad. From here listeners will be able to communicate with friends and family back in the UK via our regular 'Request Shows', they will also enjoy a regular weekday breakfast show and a 'specialised' late evening show. We also plan weekend shows with guest presenters. The trial will last for 1 month and will be used to determine listener levels, costs, feedback and the viability of it becoming a permanent station. The costs involved in setting up this station are considerable, and it is vital that you communicate with us and interact as much as possible with our presenters, because it is only with your help that we can make this work. As we increase the number of presenters, we hope to be able to extend the quantity and range of live shows covering a spectrum of diverse music genres and topics of local and national interest, both here and abroad. Try it for yourself, it couldn't be easier and the quality is equal to FM radio. All you need is a PC with access to the internet and a set of speakers/headphones plugged into your computer. To listen to Radio Baywatch just visit our website at

baywatchonline.org and follow thelinks from the front page (for best results you will need to have the latest version of Macromedia Flash Player installed and a Broadband/ADSL internet connection). You may have to wait a short amount of time for the player to synchronise with the station. If you have any difficulties in listening during the transmission, then just refresh your page and click PLAY again. If you do not have Macromedia Flash Player installed on your computer you may wish to download and install our very own RADIO BAYWATCH PLAYER which will install on to your desktop and give you easy direct access to our station. Again just follow the instructions on our website. (Virus checked and clean) I need to mention one very important point. Internet Radio broadcast ‘airtime’ is allocated to stations by way of ‘Listener Slots’. The more slots you buy, the more listeners can tune in simultaneously, but of course more slots means more costs to the station. At any one time, if we have more listeners than slots, then some people will not be able to tune in until a slot becomes vacant, but of course people will drop in and out of the station at various times during the day, and so it is only likely to be at peak times that we may run out of slots. We can monitor listener levels in real time and we will be making constant adjustments to the number of slots we have so that no-one will miss out. Our website also explains how you can listen to the station without having your PC turned on, how you can find the weekly broadcast schedule, how to send in requests via the online Request Form, and also how you can join the Radio Baywatch Team as a Presenter. So that’s it! Switch on your PC, visit our website and get listening! www.baywatchonline.org

Don’t forget to send in those requests to radio@baywatchonline.org and mention your friends and family

Pool ownership, care and maintenance. Spring is an ideal time to check out your pool to ensure everything is working for the coming season. All of our pools are maintained throughout the Winter but if you have covered, over wintered or neglected yours in any way a pre-season check is vital. Do your bits work? Your pool pump should operate quietly. Excessive noise indicates a problem. The pool pump should be protected with a safety trip switch, is this working? Is the pump clean? Empty out the pre-filter. Does the timer that controls it work? Equipment that has stood all winter in a damp and corrosive environment can often fail. Check out the sand filter. Is the sand at the correct level in the vessel, is it free flowing. Use a specific cleaning product or replace the sand if it is in poor condition. Look out for leaks from seals and pipe joints. The multi-valve should be lubricated and internal seals in good condition. Check out all the valves, skimmer, main drain and hoover are working. Opening one at a time will highlight a blockage or problem. Take a look at the pool itself. If your pool is tiled look at the grout between the tiles. Grouting can deteriorate quickly. What causes this? Incorrect ‘water balance‘. In this case chiefly the ‘PH’ and ‘Calcium Hardness’. Acidic and ‘soft’ water will dissolve the plaster in your cement pool. Consider draining the pool to repair the problem areas of grout. Once sorted and refilled, ‘balance’ the pool water. The water chemistry is the key, keep this correct and you’ll have less problems. Have you any questions about pool care? Contact Billie (0034) 658 382 237 or email Clearwaterpoolmaintnance@hotmail.co.uk

Piscinas, cuidado y mantenimiento. La primavera es el mejor momento para comprobar que todo el equipo funcione bien. Nuestras piscinas se mantienen todo el año pero tal vez, la suya haya estado cubierta o simplemente olvidada durante el invierno. ¿Funciona todo correctamente? Compruebe que el sistema de seguridad de la bomba funciona, que no hay ruidos excesivos ya que estos son señal de futuros problemas. Vacíe el prefiltro. ¿Funciona el temporizador? A veces, el entorno excesivamente húmedo daña el equipo. Compruebe el filtro, ¿tiene suficiente arena? ¿esta en buenas condiciones para que el filtrado sea el adecuado? Si no lo está, utilice un producto especifico o sustituya la arena. Compruebe que no haya perdidas en tuberías y juntas. Hay que lubricar la multiválvula y asegurarse de que las dos The Clearwater team enjoys caring for juntas interiores están en buen estado. Compruebe swimming pools here in Chiclana and Conil. también las válvulas de fondo, skimmers y barredera. Si las abrimos y cerramos de una en una podríamos detectar atascos. Ahora observe su piscina, ¿tiene gresite? ¿cómo está la lechada? Esta suele perderse o bien con el tiempo o por un pobre mantenimiento del agua. Un pH acidico hace que el cemento se disuelva. Si su piscina necesita una nueva lechada, asegúrese de que el agua con la que la llene este perfectamente equilibrada para evitar nuevos problemas. El ajuste adecuado de los productos para tratar el agua es la clave para un optimo funcionamiento de la piscina. Si tiene algun problema sobre el mantenimiento de su piscina, pongase en contacto con Billie. Clearwaterpoolmaintenance@hotmail.co.uk

A blonde gets a job as a teacher. She notices a boy in the field standing alone, while all the other kids are running around having fun. She takes pity on him and decides to speak to him. 'You ok?' she says. 'Yes.' he says. 'You can go and play with the other kids you know' she says. 'It's best I stay here.' he says. 'Why?' says the blonde. The boy says: "Because I'm the flippin’ goal keeper"

Luz Photographic Group

The Luz Photographic Group was formed last June(2009) in Chiclana by Les Rowe to help interested parties in developing their knowledge & skills relative to the taking, processing & presentation of photographs, whether they be film based or digitally captured. The group is open to all adults (beginners through to experienced) with such interests. Meetings are held weekly, currently Tuesday mornings, local to Chiclana, but incorporate organised visits to places of interest for the purposes of taking pictures under Les’ guidance e.g Chiclana Markets, Cadiz, Jerez, Sancti Petri Port, Medina Sidonia, Roche etc. To date there has been no requirement for any fees to be paid. We car share & buy our own coffees when out and about! We have also undertaken table top, macro & studio portraiture sessions plus lessons on mounting and presenting pictures. Members are encouraged to share their pictures within the group & put them up for critical analysis to aid the process of improvement. A recent development has been the introduction of an ‘internal’ theme competition as a means of promoting new picture taking. The February theme was ‘Movement’ which drew 13 entries from 7 members, Les judging that Jackie Chalmer’s picture of Maisie being worthy of top marks. (See photograph top right) Bottom right photo courtesy of Jenny Bloom. Prior to moving to Spain, Les was the chairman of a well run camera club in the South of England and was a visiting judge to Surrey Photographic Shows Federation member clubs, providing commentary whilst marking club and inter-club competitions. With over 30 years of experience Les has covered most areas of photography and used all types of cameras and associated equipment and is keen to help others get the most from theirs. For more in-

formation please contact Les Rowe on 627126388 Or Email lesr.photoman1@yahoo.com

Hi everyone. Here are the latest updates on our Chifra activities.

Integration & Spanish Classes: We’re over half way through our 12 week Spanish classes and all signs are that everyone is enjoying them and improving their Spanish. We are working on a plan which will let us continue for another 10 week session to take us up to summer. Then, if the membership wants to continue, we will work on starting up again in September. A positive consequence of the Spanish classes is the integration of our community with our Spanish neighbours at the Centro del Dia de Mayores (the day centre for those of us with a few more years under our belt). A number of our students have joined the centre and are partaking of some of their many activities. Membership of the centre is free and their activities are many, including a variety of trips within and outside of Spain.

Housing & Legalisation: AGB - As you may already know, despite the many concerns that were raised, the Chiclana AGB was approved on March 12th in an extended council meeting. We have already been in contact with the council to inform our members what to do next; and will shortly be holding a special meeting. Please check our web page at www.chifra.org White/Green Land - Chifra has been working hard on behalf of our members to help more people become legalised, or at least have their electricity re-connected. I’ve had several meetings regarding the "new-new AGB" which should be modified and released for public consumption in the near future and supersede the current AGB in less than two years. The council have promised me that it will include several areas that were left out the last time round. So some areas that are classified as white/green could now be in with a chance! I have seen sketches and approximations of how it may look. It seems better than the original and includes reduced costs and the ability to pay a monthly amount instead of all of it at one time. To most of us it’s still not perfect, but in my opinion it is palatable, and certainly much better than losing a large number of houses. Membership: Since starting our 2010 membership drive we added over a hundred new members, and have 330 currently. We are adding more each week. Keep up the pressure; remember, the more voices we have the louder we make our points to the Ayuntamiento, and the stronger we are as a group. Also keep in mind that the cost of membership is zero this year. So please keep encouraging your neighbors and friends to join usZwe’re learning and getting better all the time!

Age Concern: We had a great presentation by Age Concern at the Teatro Moderno, that was attended by over a hundred people. We have found a couple people who are interested in getting involved and helping set up an operation in Chiclana, but the more the merrier. Anyone interested can contact Yvonne Ferrier at yvonne@chifra.org. You can expect to hear more on this soon.

It finally Looks like "Spring is in the air"! Best wishes, Roger Alan Holmes - President ChiFRA

NB: The CHIFRA Events Committee is looking for live entertainment for their local social events. We require solo artists, groups, bands, DJs & cabaret acts. Please contact Jan King 625 205 655. Many thanks.

Has Your House Suffered with Damp? Helpful hints from Graham´s Upholstery!

29

About this time of year when you look around your house thoughts of spring cleaning come to mind. This winter has been especially cold and wet (understatement), and many properties have suffered considerably. Roofs have leaked, flooding has occurred and condensation has formed in many places. We have found the most useful piece of equipment to be the dehumidifier.

Blackened walls/paintwork need to be cleaned using a bleach based product to kill the mould spores and thoroughly dried before repainting if necessary.

The best way to clean your rugs, sofas, floors etc. is by the hot water extraction method, using a biodegradable chemical that sanitizes as well as cleaning and does not leave a sticky residue. Grahams Upholstery Cleaning uses this method and he will happily give advice or a no obligation quote if you give him a call on 667 299 471

I've sure got old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer but got diabetes. I'm half blind and can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine. I take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. I have bouts with dementia, poor circulation and can hardly feel my hands and feet any-more. Can't remember if I'm 89 or 98. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's licence!


Golf Tips by Don Ross “DON’T GRIP THE GRIP”

Don Ross FeelGolf School is based at Sherry Golf Club, Jerez. See www.feelgolf.com for further details

31

In all the years that I have taught golf I have never seen a bad grip. I don’t think that Golf Pride or any other grip manufacturer would sell bad grips. If they did they’d be out of business! I will now show you how to ‘hold’ the grip and not ‘grip’ the ‘grip’.

The size of an object determines how you hold it. A football is large taking your whole hand to hold it. A cricket ball being smaller is positioned more in the fingers than the hand. A tennis ball being smaller is more in the fingers and less in the palm. A golf ball being smaller still will sit only in your fingers. The same applies to holding the grip of any sporting equipment. A golf grip is the thinnest of any sporting equipment that you will ever use, unless you call darts a sport and not a drinking hobby!

How often when you buy a new glove from the pro shop and go to the range to practice do you find a hole appearing in the area of the black dot of the glove shown? This is because you are holding the grip of the glove in the wrong place. You probably think that you are letting go, so you hold tighter and after another 20 balls get a pain in your left elbow. This used to be called tennis elbow, today it´s called golf elbow! The majority of golfers place the grip of the club along this red line and I´m sorry to say it is the wrong place. Because the end of the grip is now covering the black dot, hence the hole. (Same black dot, red line added from the first knuckle joint of the index finger, through to the heel of the hand.)

Same black dot, same red line only green line added. The grip of the club sits on the finger side of the green line. When you close your left hand down you will now see that the black dot is not in contact with the grip, hence no hole.

Then adding the right hand to the grip is simple. Hold a golf ball with your thumb and index finger, (in the position you would throw the ball) alongside the grip and then drop the ball and place your fingers around the grip in a similar position as shown by the image here. You will now notice that the green thumb line has disappeared. It is under the lifeline below your thumb. Remember when placing your right hand on the grip to pull it up towards your left to make the thumb line disappear and not wrap the right hand round the grip. Holding Fingers and feeling fingers: The first three fingers of your left hand hold the grip with a little pressure. Pinkie, ring and middle fingers. Thumb and idex are only for feeling; you exert no pressure on them at all. When applying your right hand to the grip holding fingers are your middle and ring fingers again your thumb and index inger are only for feeling. The thumb pad and index finger tip must be on the grip. I have seen many articles on the grip where the author has lost the plot by explaining that the right thumb pad and index finger should touch. I once saw this explained with the aid of a football lacing needle being held between the index tip and thumb pad. This allows you to feel the lacing needle. If your thumb pad and index fingers are not touching the grip how can you feel the club head, the most important feeling in golf.

It is not important with which connection you use, the interlocking, the overlapping or the baseball as long as you can feel the clubhead weight in your right hand. You now have a good hand position on a good Grip! I have seen good golfer holding the grip badly, bad golfers holding the grip badly but have never seen a good hand connection play badly. All levels of players can hit bad shots but good hands make good players. Your hands are your lifeline in golf, place them well on the grip and you will give yourself all of the chances to improve your golf. NEXT ISSUE: Gorilla Shoulders and a Duck’s Ass - POSTURE

Having Trouble Tuning in Your TV after the storms? Here are some Freesat and Sky Veiwing Tips By Steve Harris, Electrician

As most Feesat sky viewers know by now the old blue sky viewing cards have been turned off and need replacing if you want to watch channel 108, sky 3,channel 174 five usa and channel 176 fiver you will need a new white sky card.If you have family or friends still living in the UK they can order up to 5 freesat from sky cards at any one address without causing suspicion from sky tv. It is best to get the new card activated first in the UK and the card will then work out here in any sky box if this is not possible then you will need a UK mobile with some credit on it, as the call can take up to 15 mins, or you can use a skype phone via a computer either will work enabling you to activate your new card.You can still get channel 5 on other channels by adding channel 5 to your other channels section in the memory of the sky box. There have been a lot of requests to re print the frequencies and details of the various ITV regions that are available to sky viewers via other channels. If you experience signal problems following strong winds or during rain/bad weather it is advisable to tune to one of the following ITV regions;

TV 1 BORDER SCOTLAND ITV 1 TT N ITV1 MERIDIAN S ITV 1 MERIDIAN E ITV 1 ANGLIA S ITV 1 YORKS W FOR THE ABOVE USE... FREQUENCY (GHZ) 10.891 POLARISATION H SYMBOL RATE (mbaud) 22.0 FEC 5/6 F8,5

TV1 CENTRAL W USE... FREQUENCY (GHZ) 10.758 POLARISATION V SYMBOL RATE 22.0 FEC 5/6 ITV1 WALES ITV1 WEST ITV1 W COUNTRY

ITV BORDER ENGLAND...... FREQUENCY 10.832 POLARISATION H SYMBOL RATE 22.0 FEC 5/6 STV EAST STV NORTH STV WEST UTV ULSTER USE..... FREQUENCY 10.906 POLARISATION V SYMBOL RATE 22.0 FEC 5/6

For channel 5 use:SERVICES,BUTTON 4 THEN BUTTON 4 ADD CHANNELS. FREQUENCY (GHZ) 10774 POLARISATION H SYMBOL RATE(mbaud) 22.0 FEC 5/6 FIND CHANNELS (press select) THEN HIGHLIGHT FIVE AND USE THE YELLOW BUTTON TO TICK FIVE THEN PRESS SELECT WHEN COMPLETE.(channel line up complete) TO WATCH FIVE YOU MUST PRESS SERVICES THEN LOOK FOR OTHER CHANNELS ON THE LIST THEN PRESS SELECT LOOK FOR FIVE HIGHLIGHT IT AND PRESS SELECT TO VIEW.

Don,t forget that the strongest signal for BBC 1 is found on channel 974 BBC1 LONDON,971 BBC1 SCOTLAND and 972 BBC1 WALES changing to these channels will improve you chances of a better signal during poor weather.Once these start to break up you will only find that channel 501 sky news after this goes then forget tv its torrential rain.If you find that you satellite system breaks up in light rain then you may have an alignment problem ,LNB fault,cable fault or just a low gain sky box. Still the best sky box for this area is without doubt the PACE ds430n or the earlier model the PACE 2600 both these boxes have a high gain tuner and can still be bought via EBAY or second hand via the UK. The recent bad weather has highlighted a few problems with cable degradation allowing water to travel inside the cable and eventually terminally damage the sky box.If your system is 4-5 years old it maybe time top rewire it as the extreme weather here will eventually damage external cables here SO CHECK YOUR SKY CABLES PLEASE! TDT (terrestrial digital tv) Local TV news as most people will be aware by now Spain is going digital with its terrestrial television transmission.Most spanish antennas are suitable for recieving the new TDT (spanish for our UK freeview) signals however you will need either a modern LCD/PLASMA tv or at least a TDT set top box to get the 30 odd digital channels. It is then possible to watch Spanish tv and change the language of some programmes and most films and have an English sound track too.

Tips on Introducing a New Dog into your Family Home

39

If you are thinking of helping out the local animal charities by introducing a new, stray dog into your home, either in a permanent or foster situation, it is important to remember a few tips to ensure both you and your dog live in harmony together. 1) Preparing your home: When your dog arrives at your house you should leave it to explore its new surroundings but without leaving it alone too long. You should choose a warm and quiet place, without distraction, for your new dog to sleep

2) Getting to Know the Family The members of the family should be introduced to your new dog one by one but they should be sitting in front of the dog to make it feel secure.

3) Feeding Time A new dog in the household needs its own food bowl and a separate bowl for the water. When choosing food for your new dog it is wise to choose the most complete and healthiest mix. It is not advisable to give your new dog food from your plate or any sorts of bones as these can do them serious harm.

4) Keeping your Dog Clean It is essential that young animals get brushed regularly to get rid of all the dead hair and dirt. This also stimulates their blood circulation and helps keep the fur shiny and glossy and also gets your dog accustomed to being petted by people.

5) Training your dog: the sooner the better One of the first things to teach your new dog is to recognise its name; a good way is to use the name when serving its food. It is also 7) Sterilization important to praise the dog when they have been Sterilization of your dog is a good idea as it will reduces the over population and abandonment good and done as they have been told. problem in local areas, it also reduces the aggressiveness as in 6) Learning to travel It is important for your dog to become accustomed general, animals tend to return from to travelling by car and also to the noises of the the vets more obedient and less street.

New Animal Charity In Chiclana

41

A new animal charity is being established to rehome stray and abandoned dogs in the Chiclana area. The charity, called Happy End/Final Feliz, has grown from the work of Margarita Gloersen, who has been caring for lost animals for some years and now has more than a dozen dogs awaiting permanent homes.

Stray and abandoned animals, principally dogs, are a problem throughout the Chiclana area and especially around El Marquesado, which is one of the nearest rural areas to the city itself. The new charity is being managed by a group of British and Spanish volunteers. Their first priority is to find permanent homes for the dogs now in Margarita’s care, while the long-term aim is to establish an organization for receiving animals and settling them into temporary homes until new owners can be found.

To do this the group needs funds. One source of income is a car-boot sale held every Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. beside the Autoservicio Santa Ana and venta Casa Curro on the Carretera del Marquesado. Donations of items for sale are always welcome. Other fund-raising events, including a sponsored walk, are scheduled for the Spring.

Just as important, though, are people willing to provide foster homes for the dogs while permanent homes are found. This might mean caring for a dog for up to three months. The charity will pay for food and vets’ bills, and will only offer healthy dogs for fostering.

Details of the charity’s work can be found on its website www.finalfeliz.eu and further details from info@finalfeliz.eu

En Chiclana, Una Nueva Organización Benéfica para Animales

Se crea una nueva organización benéfica para dar viviendas a perros perdidos y abandonados en la zona de Chiclana. La organización, de nombre Happy End/Final Feliz, ha nacido del trabajo de Margarita Gloersen, que ha cuidado animales perdidos unos años y actualmente tiene más que doce perros que esperan viviendas permanentes. Animales perdidos y abandonados ofrecen un problema para la zona de Chiclana, especialmente cerca del Marquesado, que es la zona rural más cercana a la dicha ciudad. La dirección de la nueva organización es realizada por un grupo de voluntarios ingleses y españoles. Su primera prioridad es solicitar viviendas para los perros que ahora cuida Margarita. El objetivo a largo plazo es establecer una organización para recibir animales y darles casas de acogida hasta que se pueden hallar dueños nuevos. Con este propósito el grupo necesita dinero. Una fuente de dinero es el mercadillo que tiene lugar cada domingo de las 10 a las 14 delante del Autoservicio Santa Ana y venta Casa Curro, Carretera del Marquesado. Donativos de cosas para vender son siempre bienvenidos. Otros aconteciementos de fondos, que incluyen una caminata patrocinada, tendrán lugar en la primavera. Igualmente importantes son las personas que ofrecerán casas de acogida mientras se busca viviendas permanentes. Puede ser necesario cuidar un perro durante hasta tres meses. La organización paga comida y facturas veterinarias y ofrece solo perros sanos a las casas de acogida. Se puede encontrar detalles del trabajo de la organización en su sitio web www.finalfeliz.eu

We are very pleased to report that the animal charity event held at the Venta la Sorpresa (casa Blas) on Saturday 20th February was a great success. There was a huge turn out filling the venta to the max and with entertainment by Kris Cody and Lee Dean along with a fantastic raffle organised by Helen Hardy of K9 Dog Grooming, what more could we ask for! A great time was had by all and the 3 animal charites Feliz Final, KIMBA and Hanni and Micheal´s dog re-homing group were thrilled to receive their donantions last month. In total Helen Hardy of K9 presenting the money to the well deserved charities. the event raised a wonderful 803€ (393€ from the raffle and 408€ from donations on the night). This money was split betAbove Micheal (dogs re-homing ween the charities and will go towards vets bills, food and group) and Concha (KIMBA) shelter for the hundreds of homeless animals in and around Below Jacky from Feliz Final. Chiclana. On behalf of these charities we would like to thank all those who came along to support the event as well as Helen Hardy and all those who helped organise it, and to Kris and Lee for the entertainment. Also a personal thank you from Helen and Kris to Lee Dean for helping out especially as Kris was a little under the weather that night - they would have struggled without him! We would also like to thank Blas and his staff for their efficiency, plus the donation that was given by Blas. A big thank you to everyone who donated raffle prizes and helped make it such a good collection to display! Lets look forward to the next event! Well Done Everyone!
