Today, the President of the Mijas La Cala Lions, Patricia Maxwell, along with members Sue and Harry Rice, visited the Cudeca Centre in Benalmádena to present the Hospice with a generous donation.
The Club held a President’s Party Night in aid of Cudeca Hospice on 21st September at the Restaurant Mijas Playa in La Cala de Mijas and thanks to a charity raffle, auction and party games, a total of €2,000 was raised on the night but the club members decided to donate another 500€, bringing the total to €2,500!
On behalf of Cudeca Hospice, Susan Hannam, member of the Board of Trustees and Rocío Torres, Manager of the Communications and Fundraising department were delighted to receive these funds which will help the Hospice continue providing the Special Kind of Caring to patients suffering from cancer and other advanced and non-curable illnesses, apart from providing support to their families.
The Mijas La Cala Lions have supported Cudeca for many years and believe that it is truly a cause that lies close to the heart of anyone, who has lost a loved one to cancer. The specific care which is offered makes such a big difference to the patients and their families, adding quality of life and dignity to their remaining days.
Cudeca is sincerely grateful to the Mijas La Cala Lions Club for their continuous support enabling Cudeca to continue Giving Life to Days!
