Costa Christmas Collections

Marbella Chosen Location for New Spy Drama Leading television production company, Wanda Halcyon Television of Europe, has announced that its latest political thriller Operating Naked – A Black Bag Job by espionage author Jon Augustine, will be filmed in Marbella, Toronto and Washington DC. This edge-of-your-seat drama about US operatives during the controversial impeachment hearings from 1997-1999, is based on the author’s clandestine days as a Special Operations officer in the US Army Intelligence Support Activity (USAISA), and is a fictional account of real life events, many of which occurred in Marbella.

After the huge success of last year’s Costa Christmas Collections, Kara and Gary Robertson and Charley Caradas of The Boardwalk Restaurant in Marbella and Slainte Restaurant in Puerto Banús have teamed up with Karen Carter Southall to make Christmas a happy one for the children of Cuidad de Los Niños, the Alora Orphanage, and the Amusivig (Houses of Domestic Violence.) The children in these houses range from one to 18, so don’t forget gifts for the older ones! Toiletries, clothes, gadgets, sports equipment, school bags, books and DVD’s (Spanish) are top recommendations for the twelve-to-eighteen-year-olds, while toys, learning activities, clothing, books and DVDs are the requests for those under 12. Simply purchase a present, wrap it up and label it with the sex and the age of the child, then deliver to one of the many drop off points along the coast. g For exact clothing sizes and

to ask about drop-off points, please contact Kara Robertson on Tel: 672 575 644.
