Corporate Friends

Our Corporate Friends initiative has been introduced in 2019 to help with the challenges faced when organising events & simply to make things easier for us.

Whilst we are very fortunate & thankful that we do enjoy the support of many local Businesses we hope to encourage the support of others through this initiative.

By joining us as a Corporate Friend you will be helping us enormously by providing a more certain base enabling our volunteers to focus more time & effort on the events themselves rather than for example on seeking donations (although of course donations will still be most welcome).

All that we are hoping for is a small annual donation of €50 (if you would like to donate more that would be greatly appreciated & amazing thankyou) which will be used on events for example to allow us to simply buy raffle prizes.

In return for kind donations & to recognise our Friends support:

  • There will be a dedicated ‘Friends’ page on our website
  • Our popular & much read Facebook page will be used to give further recognition & thanks
  • Prizes purchased will be given in Friends names
  • We will give a ‘Thankyou’ Certificate for display
  • Support will be recognised at all events & where possible we will gladly display promotional materials.

If you or your Business would like to support us in this way or perhaps you know of someone that we should speak to please let us know by contacting our office or our Events Co-ordinator, Brian, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

ABOUT HELP VEGA BAJA

HELP is a registered charity and appears on the register of charities held by the Valencian government. We help people of all ages with all sorts of problems within the Vega Baja area from La Marina to Pilar de la Horadada.

We have a centre at San Miguel de Salinas which includes a charity shop and a hire centre for mobility equipment. We also have a helpdesk in La Marina. Each of these supply a wide range of information and advice to members and nonmembers alike. Typical enquiries include questions on residence, health care, driving, bereavement, wills, burglaries and much more. If the answer to a problem is not known immediately, every effort is made to obtain the appropriate information. 

Our charity is very fortunate in having the support of a hospital visiting team who are able to visit the Vega Baja Hospital, near Orihuela  and the  Torrevieja hospital in Los Balcones upon request from the patient, relative or carer and in the very near future we will be able to offer a hospital visiting service at the Quironsalud Hospital in the International ward.

We also have a welfare officer who is able to offer advice and assistance, and our Connections team provide a 24 hour confidential and emotional support helpline . If you would like to speak with one of our trained volunteers please call the  telephone number :  965 021 552 .

We operate a hire service of orthopaedic equipment at low cost to the public and reduced fees for our members. Our vast stock of equipment includes wheelchairs, walking frames, toilet seat raisers, bath seats and crutches. This service is available to both residents and visitors alike.

Events are held throughout the year to raise funds and we are able to support those in need. This includes charities and those unfortunate enough to find themselves facing financial difficulties. This would not be possible without the tremendous amount of work that is put in by our team of volunteers. All our volunteers work extremely hard throughout the year for our charity, often in the background and we are very grateful for their continued support. If you perhaps have a few hours a week to spare and are interested in finding out about becoming a volunteer with us, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you. There are a wide range of opportunities from office administration to hospital visiting and much more in between!

We are self-funding and obtain all of our income from membership fees, orthopaedic equipment rental, donations and fund raising activities, if you belong to a group or club that raises money for charity, please consider helping us. We always welcome any goods that can be sold or used as raffle prizes.  

If you are a member of a local club or group and you think they would be interested in having someone from HELP come along to give a talk, please contact our San Miguel centre to make arrangements.

Our Facebook page (HELP Vega Baja) is proving very popular – please “like” our page and you will receive regular updates of events and activities at HELP plus information that may be of interest to you.

It is important for us to have your up to date contact information, please ensure that if you change your address, telephone number or email that you notify us in order that we can amend our records.

Thank you for your interest in  HELP Vega Baja and we would like to thank you for the support you have shown to our charity.
