The Poppy Ball for the Orihuela Costa Rica and District Branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) was finally held on Saturday evening. With almost 150 people resplendent in all their finery the evening got underway with a reception in the Castilla de Conesa.
The ballroom was packed as members and guests enjoyed themselves into the early hours with music provided by ‘Amnesia’. There was a short interlude in which the audience was entertained by Stevie Spit MBE and a wonderful raffle which raided over 800 euro.
