A Marbella fashion show raised over €2000 for the family of the firefighter killed in the recent Sierra Bermeja blaze.
The event, organised by boutique owner Anita Escombe Cedge, was held at the Divot restaurant in October, raising €2,350. Last week Maria Salmeron, partner of Carlos Martinez Haro, who died fighting the huge forest fire Sierra Bermeja fires started deliberately, says Junta President, was presented with the donation by Anita at the Brothers Tennis Club. Maria, who has two young daughters with Carlos, travelled from Almeria and expressed her thanks to everyone involved in the event,as well as the outpouring of sympathy.
Anita commented “It was a pleasure to meet Maria and a privilege to organise the fund raiser. We all owe a debt to the bravery of firefighters like Carlos”.
