Support for the ISVH Bomberos de Balcón al Mar

 

The ISVH Bomberos of Balcón al Mar, working alongside the professionals, played a hugely important role in containing and extinguishing the fires that broke out in the Granadella region during early September. Many more in Jávea would have lost their homes without the amazing effort from all these brave people.

 

The Bomberos de Balcón al Mar are a volunteer service and are Jávea's ONLY fire brigade. Some of their equipment was damaged during the fight against the blaze and now needs to be replaced. A number of fund-raising initiatives are already active to provide the monies needed to return the Bomberos to a fully equipped state as soon as possible. The Jávea U3A also has initiatives to raise funds for this cause.

 

If you wish to show your support for the ISVH Bomberos, please follow the link below to see how you might contribute. It does not matter which "initiative" you choose as longer as we get the ISVH Bomberos back ready to fight the next incident.   Support the ISVH Bomberos

Discount List

There are 22 suppliers of goods and services on the discount list. All of these have been contacted in the last 3 months to confirm their participation in our discount scheme. Members are encouraged to take advantage of these discounts and special offers.

Many members will frequent establishments and use services where their supplier would be pleased to have access to an association with over 1200 members.

We suggest that our members should encourage such suppliers to offer a discount or special offer specifically for Jávea U3A members. This can be done by asking the supplier to get in touch with the President (president@u3ajavea.org) or any member of the Committee.

It should be emphasised that the Jávea U3A does not endorse or recommend any services on the Discount List.
