We were privileged to have the following Cudeca supporters attend; the Councillor of Citizen Participation, Paco Pomares; representing the Malaga Town Hall, the President of the Deputation of Málaga, Elias Bendodo and the Vice President, Ana Carmen Mata, along with other VIP’s and major companies, organizations and associations such as Acabados del Mueble, ACEB, Alliance Vending, Bellosol, Coca Cola, Clinica Santa Elena, Málaga College of Lawyers, Nursing College of Málaga, Croasa, Diario Sur, Famadesa, Fundación Malaga, Garrigues, Grupo Suite, Hotel Don Carlos, Isoft, Jewellers A.
