On Sunday 15th May, Cindy Jones and a group of friends carried out a 5km sponsored walk from Competa to Canillas de Albaida and managed to raise an impressive 4.100€ for Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice.
Approximately two hundred people visited an open air general craft market and a separate Flavours of the World Food hall sponsored by Alison’s Cakes; Rummy’s Catering tasting Caribbean; Right Lifestyle – Healthy Mediterranean; Antonio Chavos, Alberdini – Spanish; Sugar and Spice – English; Teteria Hierbabuena – Moroccan. Children were entertained with a bouncy castle; face painting and a non-alcoholic cocktail bar. Andy Time, Fabel and DJ Tom provided wonderful musical entertainment during the day.
Cindy Jones is sincerely grateful to everyone who helped to make the day such a success; all the walkers together with their generous sponsors; Alberdini; Grapevine; Sugar & Spice; Todo Papel; Jose Luis Gutierrez; Lynn Gallon; Rachel Winspear; all the volunteers who assisted on the day and everyone who came along and joined in the fun. A special “thank you” to the team who helped arrange the day; two CAMPO team members, Debi Bond and Penny Sparks, together with Inez Leniere, Jean Sampson and Remy Goeloe.
Fundraising events such as “Day for Life” enable Cudeca to continue providing a “Special Kind of Caring” to over 5800 patients every year suffering from advanced cancer, and support to the families. Cudeca may not be able to add Days to Life but they can Give Life to Days.
