Have you recently springcleaned your cupboards and drawers? Maybe you found items, too good to throw away but don’t know what to do with. Your “Day for Life” family fun day on Sunday, 26th April in aid of Cudeca Cancer Care will have a brilliant Bric-a-brac stall, so please contact either Elaine on lainy18 @ hotmail.com or Sandra sandandar @ yahoo.co.uk who can arrange to meet you to collect all those unwanted items.

Do you have old greeting cards lying around, they can be recycled by Cudeca’s team of volunteers so please bring them along to the Alberdini on Sunday 26th from 12noon.

Got any excess fruit or veg or preserves? Then take them to the Day for Life event for Jo Robinson’s stall.

Our 2015 Challenges

Are you up for a Competa Challenge for Cudeca? If so we have a choice of four challenges as part of our “Day for Life” to raise much needed funds for Cudeca Cancer Care.

To celebrate our 5th annual “Day for Life” there are two new exciting challenges, the first, a Zumba Marathon, takes place on Saturday, 11th April in Competa Sports Hall with Nicola McEvoy who promises you two hours of fun Zumba from 11am – 1pm. The entry charge of only 5euros per adult and 3euros per child is all donated to Cudeca.

The second new challenge is to see who can hold the body plank for the longest amount of time whilst gaining sponsorship for every ten seconds. You can obtain a sponsor form; see details at the end of article. This will take place on Day for Life at The Alberdini at 12.30 and there will be a prize for the winner, sponsored by Inez from The Alberdini.

The third challenge is our Walk for Life, a 5km sponsored walk around the village of Competa, now in its 10th annual year. We shall meet at the Competa Mirador at 10:45 for a warm up and set off at 11:00. To celebrate a decade of Walk for Life, we’d like the children (and anyone else who wants too!) to dress up as Sunflowers and adults to walk in the colours of Cudeca, green and/or yellow. There will be 3 separate prizes for the best dressed male, female and youngster generously donated by our local Sugar & Spice (who, as always, have been fantastic and generous supporters – buy local!). Fancy a refreshment en-route? Then please call into Vendimia Bar/Restaurant, as Jose has generously agreed to donate a percentage of his takings from our walkers to Cudeca. The more you spend, the more Cudeca makes!! As always it is free to join our walk, all I please ask is that you obtain as much sponsor money as possible or make a donation.
Download Walk Sponsorship FormHelp us raise funds by getting sponsored for our 5km walk – or run it if you want a challenge.

The 2015 Day For Life At The Alberdini

Some Of Our Walkers

The “Day for Life” fun begins from 12noon onwards at The Alberdini, Competa with lots of entertainment for both adults and children. There will be an opportunity to try Hoopla, Tin Can Alley, Pin the Poo and Cover the Bottle and win prizes generously sponsored by Competa local businesses. Once again, you can enter the annual Darts Tournament, kindly sponsored by Pavo Real and organised by Paul Burgin.

At lunchtime, the Alberdini will prepare and cook a “Paellagigante” for only 5euros a portion, of which 2euros is donated to Cudeca. There will be numerous stalls for you to meander around, the ever popular home-made cake stall, handmade jewellery, home-made soaps, bargains at the Bric-a-Brac, wooden carvings, local produce and an amazing Raffle stall. If you are able to support our Cudeca stalls by donating any of the following, please contact the applicable person and they will arrange to meet you at a convenient Competa location closer to the event;-

Cookery Book

To continue on the theme of our anniversary celebrations, we are also producing a cookery book “The Community Kitchen” which contains over sixty recipes from all nationalities within our area. This will be on sale at the Zumba Marathon, Day for Life and available at Sugar and Spice, Competa.

So come along and join our celebrations and although I cannot guarantee the weather, you may recall last year the walkers got absolutely drenched in a torrential downpour. I can however promise you a fun day as described above together with live music from Andy Time and Aire Flamenco, whilst at the same time helping Cudeca. It is a charitable organisation that provides palliative care to the terminally ill cancer sufferers within the province of Malaga. Cudeca receives very little public funding instead they entirely depend on initiatives for raising money to ensure they can continue to provide the ‘special kind of caring’ to those who need specialist palliative care.

Thank you
