Recent Fundraising Bike Ride – Madrid to Camposol
You may recall the intrepid (and probably gruelling) cycle from Madrid to Camposol over five days. The total amount raised is an amazing 7,356.01Ä! So a big thank you to Gary McMurray, Neil Sanders, Lee McGovan, Steve Malcolm and Paul Thomas – supported by Andy Leatherbarrow in the van supplied by Citroën Mazarrón.
Rendezvous 1st anniversary
Rendezvous Camposol celebrated their 1st anniversary recently with a ticketed event and raffled a 55” television in association with MABS. This has raised an awesome 1,032Ä. So a huge thank you.
After delays caused by the awful weather in March, Mark Miles finally managed his fundraising 3,800m skydive for MABS. More details soon.

A big shout out to everyone that makes it possible for us to help those that need it – all who have donated furniture, bric-a-brac, clothes etc. And especially to all our volunteers giving up their time (and for van workers sometimes blood and sweat) to ensure we can continue.
How you can help:
Volunteers – We always need more hands (as it were) so if you can spare a few hours and would like to help we would love to see you. It’s very rewarding work and makes a huge difference to those that need our help.
Shop workers – various roles in our shop in Totana. Car share available from Camposol B
Reception help at the Respite Home
Van workers/drivers – collecting/delivering furniture etc. in the local areas. Meet at the van outside the Respite Home
Manning the Helpline phone on a rota basis
Patient drivers – driving patients to their appointments (out of pocket expenses paid)
Just phone or email us, or call into ourRespite Homeon Avenida de Los Covachos 278 on Camposol B2.
Message MABS Charity Shop Totana or Phone 634 313 478 for collection of furniture and larger items
