THE Age Care Association has reopened charity shop in Calahonda and is hosting coffee mornings in the new drop-in centre in Fuengirola, and in Café 1308 in Calypso Riviera (for those members in La Cala de Mijas and Calahonda).
After three months of isolation, many elderly, vulnerable residents have embraced this time spent catching up with friends especially as their families are not here in Spain and not all have the I.T. skills that enable them to communicate on social media.
Age Care volunteers have managed to respond to all those in need, but are now looking for additional volunteer drivers to accommodate the new members who have joined during the lockdown.
At the moment the Calahonda branch has nearly 200 members, most of whom require hospital visits, clinical and doctor’s appointments but have no means of transport other than taxis so if you can help please call Lesley on 635 407 255.
