Thanks for CUDECA Donation….. I would just like to thank a lady called Ellen in Nerja for donating some items for Cudeca.I have an elderly English friend in Cala de Moral with a terminal muscle wasting disease, and he was telling me that a Cudeca outreach team visit him every month to see how he is, and last month supplied him with a commode for free. If you have anything to donate to the Torre del Mar or Nerja shops, but have no way of getting the donation to the shops, please let me know and I would be most happy to collect it from you and take to the Cudeca shops.    Jon Horton 00447738148306 or horton002@btinternet.com

 

Services Needed- Transport for 3 boxes wanted to Madrid.  I have a bit of a weird hobby because I collect old lottery tickets of the ONCE blind lottery. If you want to see what I mean look at –     www todo-spain com.  The tickets are not worth much and only have value for collectors. In my home I have 3 big boxes with old tickets that I want to donate free of charge to a fellow-collector in Madrid. The problem is that sending them by post will cost 60 euro and the tickets are really not worth that.   Therefore I am looking for someone that soon goes to Madrid and wants to take the boxes to Madrid for me. The other collector will then pick up the boxes anywhere in Madrid. So even if you’re driving past Madrid, he can meet you on the motorway.  If you want to help, please contact me. empieters@gmail.com

For Sale-  My children have left home a few years ago and I started today ( I know very late J) to empty their cupboards out. My son seems to have possessed just about any technical equipment with a cable as well as lots of motorbike protective clothing.  Anything I sell, I will donate to a charity I have set up last month, called ‘Jan Schmid’. His young son of 14 years died of cancer after a 17 months struggle. We have been raising money to enable the parents to have a weeks break to try and get their heads together somehow.   We have exceeded our target ( currently at €4272) and will allocate funds to children with terminal cancer here in the Malaga area.  In addition to me advertising my children’s ‘stuff’, a link to the charity site?https://gogetfunding.com/jan-schmid/      Who knows there might be some charitable people in the area who are happy to donate, even if just the cost of a glass of wine. Anything would help.  I look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance for your help.    Best Regards    Anke
