Welcome to Help International Benidorm

Help International Benidorm is a registered charitable organisation, with no political or religious affiliations, run by volunteers to provide help to residents and visitors in emergencies and times of need:

  • We assist patients in hospital and pay regular visits to the housebound
  • We assist in emergencies, providing advice when people do not know where to turn.
  • We have several interpreters to assist people at medical appointments, or handling emergencies requiring the Spanish language.
  • We loan medical equipment- wheelchairs etc.- for short term use without charge.
  • HELP maintains a close relationship with the British Consulate in Alicante and with other charitable organisations.
  • Volunteer teachers provide free Spanish language lessons for HELP members. (A donation is required)
  • We organise our own social events and encourage house-bound members to participate. We raise funds which are used to assist other charities that serve the Costa Blanca community and we work as volunteers to serve that community.

Come and join us on a Thursday morning about 10.30 am at the José Llorca Linares Social Centre, Benidorm - see 'Our Location' for directions.

Retirement of our Vice President and Welfare Coordinator

Christine, our much valued Vice President and Welfare Coordinator was presented with a gold "Helping Hands" on a gold chain, to mark her retirement from HELP International Benidorm. We thought it very appropriate and she, obviously, agreed. Flowers were also presented and it was noted that she has a week to enjoy them, before she flies off to her family in Australia. She has been with the organisation for most of her twelve years in Spain and has covered every volunteer post going!! Everyone here wishes her the very best of health and happiness in her Australian home. She will be much missed!

Parking Problems at Jose Llorca Linares Centre, Benidorm

PARKING PROBLEM ALERT AT JOSE LLORCA LINARES SOCIAL CENTRE, BENIDORM - Benidorm is building an underground car park, on the grounds next to the Centre. Parking is a nightmare and will be for two years, apparently. We really haven't any choice about holding the next meeting and the Christmas Fayre at the centre. No-one was told about this, the people at the Centre were as much in the dark as anyone else. Men turned up and put up fencing....that was that!!! So those of you that have to come by car - see if you can arrange a 'car share' to keep the number of cars down to a minimum.

The Big Shop!

The Big Shop

The Monthly 'BIG SHOP' just got bigger !! More big hearted residents from Camping Armanello have joined our quest to support the Relleu childrens home. The monthly food provision makes such a big difference to the homes budget, allowing the dedicated staff team to pay other bills, heating, lighting etc. Massive thank you to all those who contributed.
