MABS Shop in Totana
We rely on donations from you!
Clothes, bric-a-brac, furniture and larger items etc. donated by you are sold in our shop in Totana at Avenida Juan Carlos I. Take the first exit at the first roundabout coming into Totana from the RM3.
We still urgently need furniture, clothes and bric-a-brac to sell to raise funds.
Can you spare a few hours a week?
Our Volunteers work hard to meet the demands, but we need more people to lighten the load. We are particularly short of patient drivers and fundraisers, but if you can help in any capacity and have a few hours spare each week please get in touch at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call into our Respite Home on Camposol B.
Help us to Help you
MABS have donation ‘boxes’ for clothes, bric a brac, books etc. in Alley Palais, Camposol B; The Club House, Camposol C and MABS Respite Home.
For furniture and larger items, our van runs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the collection of furniture etc.
If you can help please phone 634 313 478 to arrange collection.
