Folk from Salobreña have joined to help out the owner of the Food Truck, which was destroyed in a fire recently.
Antonio Paquet, who is the owner of the surfing club, 18 Nudos and to whom the converted bus belonged, has expressed his gratitude to those trying to help him out. He said that the fire had been a tremendous blow for him and pointed out that the police still don’t know who was behind the fire.
Amongst those expressing their support are several local bands, many of whom have played at the club. In fact, they have organised a small music festival which will be held on the 26th and 27th of this months at the club.
A mixture of ten solo musicians and bands will participate in this 2-day festival, which will have an entrance fee of 10 euros (included in the price is a drink and a portion of paella).
The money collected from the entrance tickets and any donations will go towards getting the Food Truck up and running again.
But there is more because a group of surfers who regularly use the club has organised an online campaign, which so far has raised 744 euros. Their target is 7,000 euros in the next 25 days – that’s how long the donation accounts will be operative.
Finally, Antonio Paquet commented that the fire was deliberate (arson) and destroyed the bus which was the club’s bar. He said that the club could not afford to foot the whole bill for it to be rebuilt – They need help to do this.
The club came into being about eight years ago on Playa Granada but it was moved in 2013 to Salobreña, where it still finds itself. From then, the club has continued to grow with great success partly owing to the Food Truck coming into being this July.
