As always….. 

A big thank you to everyone that has enabled us to help those that need us.  All donations of furniture, clothes, bric-a-brac etc. that we sell in our Charity Shop at Ave Juan Carlos I in Totana, all books that help us get donations in Alley Palais, fundraisers and raffles by local businesses and any cash donated allow us to continue.

And without our selfless volunteers that work in the shop, drive and work on the van, cover reception etc. in the Respite Home, answer the phones and drivers that take patients to appointments – nothing would get done! So, thank you all.

In December we assisted with:

  • 90 Appointments 
  • 87 Translations
  • 10 Drives to hospital
  • 8 loans of equipment

So in 2021 we helped with: 

  • 1,323 appointments
  • 1,230 Translations
  • 363 Drives to hospital
  • 84 loans of equipment

Fundraisers in December

Ladies Coffee Morning in Condado de Alhama meet every Monday at various venues to raise money for charity.  We are very grateful for their donation of 350€!

The Hacienda del Alamo Ladies held a raffle at their Christmas Lunch and donated a fabulous 1,405€ to MABS!

And Decklid Auto Services Mazarrón held their annual Christmas Draw Box at 2€ a square which raised 407€ and Decklid themselves donated a further 400€, so a total of 807€.  So thank you to all the customers and David and Diane at Decklid!

Volunteers always needed

Our volunteers allow us to help those diagnosed locally with cancer and to provide:

Drivers – to take patients to and from hospitals

Translators to ensure the diagnosis is fully understood

Home carers to provide additional care when needed

Respite and Hospice care

Medical equipment on loan to patients

1-2-1 counsellors

We are grateful for volunteers in any capacity but we particularly need help in the shop in Totana (Mon – Thurs at the moment and car share is available from Camposol) and to work on the van collecting and delivering furniture etc. Van crews meet at the Respite Home.

We also need volunteers to help at reception in the Respite Home; drive patients to hospital appointments and man the Helpline etc.
