Many thanks to everyone who replied to our last advertisement for volunteers in the Cudeca shops in Nerja and Torre del Mar.

We always need more help, so if you have a few hours a week to spare we would be delighted to hear from you.

Cudeca is a charity that provides palliative care to patients suffering from cancer and other advanced and terminal diseases, at home or at their hospice in Arroyo de Miel.

We have reopened the furniture shop in Torre Del Mar and would appreciate help from strong fit people to assist with moving furniture etc. We would also love to hear from you if you would like to work in one of our other shops in Torre del Mar or Nerja.

The shop in Torre del Mar opens six mornings a week and five afternoons; (closed on Saturday afternoons and all daySunday).

Our Nerja shop is open six days a week, from 10am-1.30pm.

Please consider volunteering and help Cudeca “put life into days” for seriously ill patients.
