FOUR year old Calpe resident Triana Matilla Ruiz has shown she is as generous as she is brave by asking friends and family to donate money to a local cancer charity rather than buy her presents.

 Little Triana overcame a serious bone marrow disease and wanted to give something back, and this week presented cheques totalling €150 to the president of the Calpe branch of the AECC, the Spanish Association Against Cancer.  Maria Ferrer gratefully accepted the donation saying “the awareness of this girl and her family after going through a serious illness and now wanting to help other children is a credit to them all”.
