It is with some regret that we have to inform our supporters of the closure of our Mazarrón Town Shop. This is primarily due to staffing problems.
We will be continuing with our Aid Days in Mazarrón until the end of May and our Aid Days in Cañada de Gallego until June. These will then cease, as our Outreach Coordinator Jennifer Tanton is no longer able to continue organising these days. Her knowledge and expertise in this demanding position makes it impossible for her to be adequately replaced. All our clients are referred to us through Social Services and are therefore being referred to other Aid Agencies for their food aid.
Jennifer would like to personally thank all the kind people who over the years have responded to her requests for specific items for families in need. This generosity has made so many sad people happy, cold people warm, lonely people feel loved and has given hope where there previously was none.
We also wish to thank all the present and past volunteers, who have given their time and effort to make the Charity the successful and revered body within the Spanish community that it is today, together with all those who have throughout the past 8 years donated items for sale, collected monetary donations on our behalf and have generally helped us in our quest to make a difference to so many families in our area. We have undoubtedly been able to achieve this mission thanks to your support.
The Puerto de Mazarrón Shop is thankfully still open, as the team who volunteer in that shop have expressed a wish to continue our good work. Their aims and intentions will be the same as always; to help people in need. We trust that our supporters will continue to help this hardworking and dedicated team to continue to help those less fortunate in our area. The shop is currently open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am-1.30pm and will hopefully have extended opening hours in the near future. The shop is situated on the corner of Calle Sierra Espuña and Calle Carrascoy. It can be reached (coming from Bolnuevo) by taking the first left turn after the Wok Buffet and then it’s about 500 metres on the left hand side. From Mazarrón, at El Arbol roundabout take the Via Axial towards Bahia and turn left just before the garden centre. The shop is about 500m on the left.
Many thanks to you all.
