Going Out - Page 51 New Furniture Store For MABS Cancer Support Group

MABS Cancer Support Group in Murcia is to open a brand new store next door to the very successful MABS Cancer Centre in San Javier. Opened in November 2010, the Cancer Centre has built up a reputation for top quality new and nearly-new clothing and accessories, as well as providing much-needed information, therapy treatment and counselling for all those affected by cancer in the Murcia region.

“We receive many generous offers of furniture and other household items” remarked Centre Manager, Sue Thomason, “but space is limited in our current premises. The shop next door has been empty for some time, but we wanted to make sure that the MABS Centre was successful before committing further”. After 18 months trading, the Centre has more than proved itself and Sue plans to open for trading on 2nd March, with an official opening planned for 3rd April. The store will need to be stocked in readiness, so donations of furniture, household items and bric-a-brac from the public would be gratefully received. MABS Murcia is able to collect large items or you can call into the MABS Centre in San Javier. Call Sue Thomason on 615 016 035 or email for further information.

MABS Murcia is a registered charity (No. 7261) offering help and support to local people of all nationalities who have been diagnosed with or are being treated for cancer. If you or someone you know would like some confidential help or support call our HELPLINE 693 275 779 or visit their website: and

HELP of Denia and Marina Alta Help Raquel Paya School

Raquel Paya School is a Centre in Denia for children with special educational needs, students are from any nationality and interestingly there are six English children currently attending this school. HELP of Denia and Marina Alta has helped the school several times in the past, in particular with the development of their Sensory Room.

A Sensory Room is a place where children with special needs can explore and develop their senses and skills. A Multisensory room can engage children who can learn through play, from following bright lights,

shapes and patterns with their eyes to pressing buttons to make the sensory room change colour or even change colour to music.

However, the Sensory Room can get extremely hot and uncomfortable for both the children and their teachers, so with this in mind HELP of Denia and Marina Alta identified part of the proceeds from their Christmas Fair and were pleased to hand over a cheque for 1000€ to Ma. Teresa Mart Marti – Director of Raquel Paya School, to cover the cost of installing air conditioning for the sensory room.

This was very gratefully accepted and the representatives from HELP enjoyed seeing the smiling faces of the children, acknowledging also the commitment and dedication of all the staff.
