Policia Local from BENIDORM presented food products and personal hygiene and cleaning products to Caritas.

Public security adviser Lorenzo Martinez applauded the generosity of donations from residents of Benidorm and praised the local police for their “year after year altruistic awareness” of the needs of others.

Rafael Urbano, president of the Asociacion Sociocultural de la Policia Local, explained that officers also bought more items with the money they raised by selling the Christmas lottery.

Urbano also thanked Officer Lola Saval’s daughter for donating a toy cart worth € 659 which she won in a competition.

It was difficult to estimate the total value of the Caritas donation, Urbano said, “but it is safe to say that this year it easily exceeded € 2,000”.
