To mark the end of the Spanish National Cancer month of October, the A.E.C.C (Asociación Española Contra El Cancer) was visited by two local groups of people recently at their office in Albox. To increase the interest in the visit both groups came bearing gifts, giving the A.E.C.C. a double whammy!
The first group was from the Almería Bowling Centre in Los Llanos, Arboleas. The Bowling Alley’s General Manager, Rafael Aranda Amate and Staff Member Helen Simpson were visiting to present the A.E.C.C. with cash and a cheque to the value of €607. This had been raised during a special Bowling for Cancer Day, which had been raised earlier in the year,
The second group was from F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone), represented by Vice President Carrie Green. This was to make a presentation of a cheque for €1,000.
The A.E.C.C. is a national Spanish cancer support group, which operates telephone lines and a website, from which cancer sufferers, their families and the general public can obtain information about cancer. The charity also provides accommodation for cancer patients and support for the mobile breast screening units that can regularly be seen in the towns and villages throughout the Almanzora Valley.
