Benalmádena, 2nd March 2012
On 1st March, Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice celebrated the opening of the new local for the Cudeca Charity Shop in el Palo, at 13:00h, on Calle Escultor Paco Palma nº1, El Palo in Málaga.
Attending the opening was the Social Rights Councillor, Francisco Pomares; the Eastern District Councillor, Carmen Casero, the Eastern District Director, Almudena Ramos, and on behalf of Cudeca, Founder and President, Joan Hunt OBE; Chief Executive and Medical Director, Marisa Martin; Deputy Chief Executive-Financial Director, Rafael Olalla, and the charity shops Coordinator, Katie O'Neill.
The new location of the el Palo charity shop is in a better and busier location, opposite the El Palo Shop and the Bus Stop nº11 and very near the El Palo weekly market. It is much larger and more suited to receiving and selling donated goods such as clothing, handbags, accessories, shoes, household items, tools, books, children's clothing and more.
The 12 Cudeca charity shops scattered throughout the province of Malaga are managed by teams of volunteers who devote their time to receive, sort and to sell donated items to raise funds for those who need it most.
With the support of new volunteers, we are able to extend the shop opening hours to include Saturday mornings. This shop will be open Monday through to Saturday from 10:00 to 13:30 and Monday to Friday from 17:00 am to 8:00 pm, to welcome old and new customers as well as charitable donations that will allow Cudeca to continue Giving Life to Days.
