There’s lots of people here who raise shedloads of money for causes that are important. The Winches footy tournament the other week, the care for cats, the cancer fair in december.

The Ibiza & Formentera Branch of the Spanish Cancer Association, AECC, announced this week that they have received a donation from the Teenage Cancer Trust and London’s private members club, Groucho Club, with a total of 8,000€ handed over by TCT patron, Darren Strowger, in a meeting on the island some days ago.

The donation comes as a result of funds raised at the second annual Ibiza Summer Party in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust and the Ibiza and Formentera branch of the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer (AECC) held on Thursday16th August 2012 at local San Antonio agroturismo hotspot, S’Atalaya.

Darren and the Groucho were delighted to be able to present the AECC with the cheque for €8,000 in order that the association continue their unending work supporting cancer patients and their families in the Pitiusas.

Joining Forces

Sue Mari, Vice-President of the AECC is over the moon with the donation and had this to say on the welcome news:

We are very happy with the outcome of the collaboration with Antz, the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Groucho Club and very grateful that they considered raising funds for the association.

In Ibiza and Formentera there are an increasing number of cancer patients who need our help and the funds raised will enable us to meet their specific needs. Thanks to FIX Ibiza and Antz for their role in bringing everybody involved together.

We look forward to nurturing our relationship with both the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Groucho Club over the coming months.”

The Ibiza Summer party will be coming back for the 3rd year in 2013, again in support of both Teenage Cancer Trust and AECC; both dates are yet to be confirmed along with the venue for the event.
