VivoAid On Sunday 3rd July, the Balcon Hotel in Competa was the venue for the second VivoAid gala evening. Some 300 people enjoyed a wonderful evening of food, dance and music under the stars on the pool terrace at this beautiful location. The show was hosted by Hanna Murray from Talk Radio Europe, and the Mayor of Competa, Jose Luis Torres Gutierrez, opened the proceedings with a welcome speech. First to perform was the children’s flamenco dance group "Aromas de Albaida." The group, made up of children from four to nine years of age, enchanted the audience with their performance and gave a wonderful opening act. Next on stage was "Al Compass," a trio of young students from Competa, who performed a selection of popular Spanish songs to the delight of the audience – in particular the large Spanish contingent. Without doubt, the stars of the dancing section of the show were Grupo Salaria, a belly dance troupe from the village of Salares who brought the crowd to their feet and returned to dance two encores. Next up were "Acoustic Roots," who performed a se-

lection of their ever-popular songs and had the crowd up and dancing and "warmed up" ready for the final group, "Guiri". As ever, this fantastic rock, blues and reggae band had the people rocking in the aisles and dancing the night away until 12.30 when the show closed. The evening was held in aid of Cudeca and Help for Heroes, and a total of €2,606 was raised to be divided equally between these charities. After the event, show director, Roger Sparks said: “The real stars of this show were all the people who attended and gave so generously to the raffle and ticket sales. I understand that these are difficult times and I am overwhelmed by their kindness. I would like to say a heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who was there – the audience, the performers who gave freely of their time, and the numerous helpers. We will do this again.”
