The ‘Gran Gala Beneficia’ in aid of the Bomberos (firemen) held in the square Puerto Santiago over the weekend of 20th – 21st October 2007 was a huge success.

I joined in the celebrations on the Sunday night and it was well in full swing when I arrived. The entertainment ranged from dancers and singer to ventriloquist and comedians, too numerous to mention.

The sum raised was in excess of €15,000 including donations of Santiago del teide Lions club present a cheque to Bomberos€1500 from Santiago Del Teide Lions Club, presented by President Mary Thomson and €2000 from fundraising in Yates Bar, Los Gigantes, presented by Arthur Lewis.

The highlight of the evening, from my point of view, and most Full Monty by Bomberosother ladies there, was the Striptease Full Monty by the Bomberos themselves. It was so hilarious I could hardly take photos for laughing, they must have spent quite a bit of time rehearsing, well done lads, very entertaining. Still Full Monty Santiago del Teide Bomberoslaughing I did manage to get from the side of the stage to the back reasonably quickly to get a place in the front of the queue for pork chop and canary potatoes – served after midnight I was starving!Full Monty Santiago del Teide Bomberos
