Summer events

AGE Concern Costa Calida is gearing up to host its next ‘Menu del Dia’ with a tempting offer at the Condado Club, now under new management. Age Concern invites everyone to join them on July 31 at 1:30 pm for a sumptuous three-course meal and a small drink—all for just 15€. Tickets are available at the Social Centre Located at 2B Avenida De Los Covachos, Camposol C Sector. They advise you to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

This event is not just about delicious food; it’s about creating connections and supporting the local community. Age Concern Costa Calida, entirely operated by dedicated volunteers, provides essential services like advice, befriending programs, and medical equipment hire—all free of charge for those over 50. They also have wonderful events and day trips to create a fun, social, and warm atmosphere in the community.

These events play a crucial role in preventing loneliness, offering opportunities to socialise and engage with others. Beyond the dining event, Age Concern has organised many activities throughout the summer like a Tabletop sale on June 29, a food-tasting afternoon on July 23, and a Stars and Stripes BBQ on July 6. Each event brings people together, creates friendships, and supports a vibrant community spirit. Come along, enjoy great food, and make a difference in someone’s day!
