The charity night is being held to raise funds for the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRUST, which is a research charity fighting to combat this awful illness that affects so many children and young people, Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-shortening inherited disease, affecting almost 10,000 people in the UK alone. You can’t catch or develop CF, it’s something you’re born with and most cases in the UK are now diagnosed soon after birth.
It mainly affects the lungs and so causes breathing difficulties, a normal cold to a healthy person can be cured quickly but it means weeks of antibiotics to C.F sufferers, Just to prove how dedicated they are and how hard they work, in 1964 Cystic Fibrosis sufferers would normally not live to their 5th birthday, now they are living into their 40,s If you or someone you know has been recently diagnosed with CF it can be devastating, help with information and support is available from www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk

In 2008, barbershop (or singing four part harmony a cappella style) was virtually unknown in Spain, so the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers (SABS) was formed to help promote this unique artform. As part of an ongoing programme to encourage more people to take up what is a fantastic hobby, we are organising a series of ‘Learn to Sing Harmony in a Day’ events, the second of which will be at Marcia’s Dance Centre in Calpe on Wednesday, 22 May 2013.
The aim is for people to learn a song during the day and to perform it to their family and friends in the evening. In our experience, people are so taken with this kind of singing that they want to carry on and join a chorus, so we are hoping that a new chorus will be created in the Calpe area as a result. Both men and women are welcome to join us.
Each year, we hold our annual convention and the next one is in Calpe, from 3-6 April 2014. If you would like to find out more about the Association, please go to our website: www.sabs.es.
