What’s the weight of the cake?

THE WEIGH-IN: The cake is weighed by Cathy of Age Support and Lola of Coviran

CHARITY Age Support, based in Arboleas, has launched its ‘Guess the Weight of the Christmas Cake Competition’ for 2017.

The fruit cake, made and beautifully-iced by a friend of the charity, was weighed at the local supermarket with Lola from Coviran and Cathy, chair of Age Support.

The weight of the cake can be guessed for €1 in the Age Support shop in the Placeta Padre Arias in Arboleas, with the winner being announced by mid-December in the local press, Smooth FM and the shop.

The Age Support shop will also be holding a Christmas raffle later in the year and are still asking for donations to the shop in Arboleas, which is open 10am to 1.30pm Monday to Saturday.

The Age Support welfare team, based in Avenida Lepanto in Albox, has also announced that they have recruited two new volunteers to help their work providing practical and emotional support to older people living in the Almanzora Valley area.

The charity will have a stall at the ACRAA Christmas fete in the Renfre building, Alfoquia on November 26.
