Charity lunch to benefit Oliver Garcia

Oliver Garcia in the Murga Ni Pa Tanto.

Oliver Garcia is a young man, aged 23, from Santa Barbara (Icod de los Vinos) who was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy when aged 7.

Formerly, he was a well known rally driver, but has been forced to swap his rally car for a wheelchair. He attended Adeje Rally recently, maintaining an interest and a smile. He also forms part of the group of murgas Ni Pa Tanto in Icod.

Oliver needs to get to the municipal pool in Icod 2-3 times a week for rehabilitation, but cannot afford the taxi to get there, therefore, Ann Goulden is organising a lunch at an Italian Restaurante in Playa San Marcos on Saturday, 23rd April at 1.30pm. Tickets are 23€ for a fabulous Italian meal with wine and music and a draw of lucky numbered tickets.

More details and to book, contact Ann Goulden on the numbers shown on the poster below.


Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
