As 2020 draws to a close we look forward to saying goodbye to a horrible year. Throughout this time Age Concern volunteers have gone above and beyond to help the communities in which they live and work. Every day they strive to make a difference to the lives of our clients and the pleasure in helping others is reward itself.
Whether it is taking people to hospital appointments, making a phone call to someone who lives on their own or supporting food banks for those most in need, we have been by their side providing practical help. Our 4 local drop-in centres remain open providing a focal point for the community and  offering a warm welcome and much needed social interaction in a friendly environment.
Their value to  clients continues to be immeasurable. We are dedicated to fighting Loneliness and Isolation that has often become an unwelcome mainstay for too many people. But this does not need to be the case. Those few hours with others are enough to make a positive difference to our clients’ lives. Full details of where we are can be found by calling our Helpline on 652537615.
The Age Concern Charity shop in Los Boliches is staffed by a fantastic team of volunteers ready to help with a welcoming smile to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Our shop is located in C/FRANCISCO CANO 56, LOS BOLICHES (close to Spainsburys) and has been transformed into SANTA’S GROTTO where you will find a full range of quality gifts ALWAYS at low prices.
Inside the shop you will see the biggest, fantastic CHRISTMAS HAMPERS full of all your favourites and they could be YOURS in our Christmas Draw. There is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Only 1 euro each. Why not increase your chances of winning by donating a bit more and including the whole family. The Draw will take place on Monday December 21st at 12 noon in the shop
In these difficult times every penny counts. So if you are looking to save some cash at this time of year please come in to browse and buy. You’ll be glad you did. Many of our customers also visit the shop to enquire about available Welfare advice, help and support including short term hire of mobility equipment
If you can’t get to us – it’s not a problem. Call our Helpline on 652537615 where you can speak to a volunteer, in confidence, every weekday from 10 – 4 or leave a message out-of-hours and we’ll strive to get back to you the next working day
We would like to thank everyone who has supported us during a very difficult 2020. Our clients, customers, volunteers, donors and supporters. All those businesses who accept our collection tins and publicity as well as our friends in the media and Town Halls who have helped get our message across to the communities we serve.
Despite the set backs that this year has brought, Age Concern is committed to remain an integral part of the English speaking communities in Fuengirola, Mijas and Benalmadena providing Help where Help is needed to the over 50’s
If you would like to join us please pop into one of our drop-in centres where you can catch up with old friends and make new ones in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our social calendar for this year never got off the ground but plans are already in place for 2021. To join us is absolutely FREE. For more details on where you can find us and opening times please call our Helpline on 652537615 between 10 – 4 pm weekdays or leave a message (24/7 )
If you would like to help or support the Charity please call our Helpline and we will arrange to have a chat over a coffee without obligation. We would be very happy to talk to both individuals and companies to discuss how you can make a real difference to peoples lives.
As Christmas approaches Age Concern will be outside La Cala Town Hall EVERY Market Day (Wednesday and Saturday ) from 11 – 2 pm. Please come and visit us – we are happy to explain all about the Charity, who we are and what we do
Everybody can help somebody and that’s what we strive to do EVERY day
All the volunteers at Age Concern Fuengirola, Mijas and Benalmadena wish you a Peaceful Christmas and a Safe and Healthy New Year. Keep well, look after each other and we’ll see you all in 2021
