Stewart Cusden, Chairman of The British Benevolent Fund (BBF) presented Jaqueline Phillips MBE of MABS Cancer Support with a cheque for €9,000 at a special ceremony at the Charity’s recently opened palliative care home in Camposol, Mazarrón, Murcia on 25th July.
The Press were invited to visit the Centre and discuss the work it carries out in offering Hospice and Respite Care, treatment information and counselling and practical support to those affected by cancer. English speaking staff with Spanish speakers are available when required.
This palliative care home works with families of all nationalities affected by cancer, with a significant proportion being British, which is why the British Benevolent Fund decided to make this generous donation. The British Benevolent Fund is the oldest English speaking charity in Spain dedicated to helping British citizens in need.
A MABS spokesperson commented, “This home is a long-held wish of ours to be able to offer a complete range of services to help people when they are at their most vulnerable. Cancer is a dreadful disease and we in MABS strive to help with everything from transport to translators and nursing care to counselling, so this place now means we can provide complete care when needed.”
