Shop Workers

We always need volunteers to help out in our shop at Avenida Juan Carlos I in Totana. We are open Monday to Thursday 10am-1.30pm.  Car shares are available from the lower car park on Camposol B.  There are still strict COVID rules in place limiting numbers of customers in the shop, sanitising, wearing masks etc.   

There are ‘front of house’ roles dealing with the public, selling clothes, furniture etc. or ‘back room’ roles sorting clothes, linen or bric-a-brac that have been donated. Washing (we have a washing machine!), ironing where needed and putting items on the racks. We have a kitchen where tea or coffee can be made and coffee breaks to a local bar where elevenses and a tostada can be had. We have a great bunch of people doing a well worth job to support those in need. If interested please get in touch – with more volunteers we could increase the days we open.  

Sponsored Bike Ride – Madrid to Mazarrón in aid of MABS Cancer Support

Intrepid riders are cycling from the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid over 5 days – leaving 22nd January 2022 and arriving at Tel’s Bar, Camposol A at around 1pm on January 26th, (they have assured us they know how mountainous it is, so fingers crossed!), where they will be welcomed by the Mayor of Mazarrón Gaspar Miras. 

The charity ride is supported by local businesses – Luz del Sol, Ibex Insurance, Tel’s Bar, Top to Toe Hair Salon, Compusurf, and CM Constructions with a support vehicle provided by Citroen Mazarrón.

Donations can be made to PAYPAL donate@mabscancersupport.org or directly into La Caixa ES79 2100 6032 8702 0016 8624 using the concept BIKE RIDE.
