When Daphne Finch and her husband David left a London Earls Court exhibition clutching a ‘lucky ticket’ they had no idea they were holding the key to more than 30 years of exciting holidays in their hands.
‘On our way out we discovered that we had won a week’s timeshare. But we really thought nothing of it until we received a phone call to assure us that it was all true and when would we like to visit it!’ said Daphne.
That was 34 years ago, and the couple travelled to the Costa del Sol to enjoy their new holiday home in the sun at Las Farolas resort on Mijas Costa – they were so impressed they promptly bought another week to add to the one they had won.
And thirty years ago, they were offered the opportunity to upgrade and become founding members of the newly created Club La Costa, on the Costa del Sol. Since then they have seen the Club La Costa World resort develop to become one of the largest and most impressive on the coast.
This year Daphne, aged 79, and David, 85, celebrate their Diamond Wedding anniversary and CLC World, which is marking its own 30th anniversary, invited the couple to a complimentary celebratory meal at the Costa resort’s Safari restaurant during their June visit.
“We have done so much travelling over the years, enjoying holidays abroad almost every year of our marriage, that now we are taking the time to enjoy our home resort here on the Costa del Sol, where it began,’ said the couple.
They will be cruising to Croatia and the Greek islands when they actually celebrate their 60 years as a married couple on September 11th. They booked the cruise through CLC World Travel and it will be their third cruising holiday in recent years.
The couple, who live near Rugby, UK, added: “Everyone at CLC has been marvellous and so kind in helping us celebrate this eventful year and we could not have asked for anything more memorable. We can look back over so many CLC World enjoyable holidays shared with family and friends.”
