MABS recently opened a hospice suite at a 24/7 residential care home for cancer patients in the Murcia region.

The suite is a fabulous home-from-home so that the patient will still have all their home comforts as well as 24/7 medical care.

It even has a separate bed for a family member or friend to stay with them. This facility has been a long time in planning then acquiring a suitable hospice suite. It is available for both respite and end of life enabling cancer patients to have the dignity they deserve.

All of this costs an awful lot of money every month so MABS have decided to hold a Hospice Fundraiser where everything raised on the night will go directly towards the running costs of the hospice. This event will be a Dinner Dance which will be held on Saturday 30th April at Casa Club La Serena in Los Alcazares who have created a superb menu. Music is by The Geckos and they will have a photo booth for some crazy photos plus a great raffle. The cost will be €22.50 with all proceeds going to the hospice.

Tickets are available from the MABS shop in San Javier or you can email the event organiser mabsdonnawalsh@gmail.com or send a message via the Facebook page www.facebook.com/mabsmurciamarmenor

This is sure to be a fantastic night. Rooms will be available at the hotel next door. Please ask for information.
