CALANOVA Cancer presented cheques last Friday to different charities in the Balearic Islands who help to fight against cancer.
A total of €33,000 was distributed, including €15,000 to the AECC (Spanish Association Against Cancer), €15,000 to ASPANOB (Association of Parents of Children with Cancer) and €3,000to DIME (Palliative Cancer Care). This is thelargest amount of money that Calanova Cancer has ever awarded and shows that their new premises on 354 Joan Miro Street is doing exceptionally well.
With the summer now over, all clothes left over from the season have been sent to the Guantanimo Province community in Cuba whose homes were destroyed by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. Dr Angel Avila, a local doctor in Palma Nova, will deliver these personally and distribute them amongst those who are in need of them most.
At the presentation, Calanova Cancer thanked everyone who had made donations over the years and to their team of volunteers who continue to help in so many ways.
The Calanova Cancer Care Charity was founded in November 2011 and has so far donated over €350,000 to help people with cancer in the Balearic Islands. Located outside of the Calanova Sailing School, their shop is open from 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 2pm on Saturday.
