LAST Thursday the Mayor of Benalmadena, Víctor Navas took part in the reopening of the charity shop of the Cudeca Foundation of Avenida García Lorca in Arroyo de la Miel, together with the vice president of the collective, Susan Hanna.
“The people of Benalmadena should be proud that a group like Cudeca, with great roots throughout the Costa del Sol and with very valuable work and support for family and sick people, has chosen our town as headquarters,” said the mayor.
The Town Hall have been constant supporters of Cudeca and were happy to join in with the reopening of this charity store, which provides means for financing through the sale of second-hand products.
The store has a wide range of clothing, footwear and accessories, all donated by helpful locals.
“Today is a special day for Cudeca: our charity shops are an essential resource to continue performing our palliative care services,” said the vice president of Cudeca, who recalled that in 2019 they served more than 1,400 people.
