When MABS Cancer Support Group opened the doors of their Information Centre and retail outlet in San Javier 2 years ago, no-one could have guessed how rapidly it would grow. It’s been a resounding success, providing information, advice, counselling, reflexology, massage and lymphedema treatment for those affected by cancer, with the retail side establishing a reputation for top quality clothing and accessories and raising much-needed funds for MABS Murcia.
Building on this achievement, in February this year, MABS opened a furniture store right next door to the Centre, which has proved a big hit with not only locals, but people from far and wide. You can find everything from a sofa to a loafer, TV sets to kitchen cabinets, toasters to coasters in this spacious and welcoming store. In addition, you will find Gail’s Sunshine Slimmers holding their weekly meetings and Lynn’s slow Zumba class for those who want to tone up.
“I’m delighted with how well the two stores have done,” said MABS Director, Lyn Baines. “But it couldn’t have happened without the dedication and hard work of Manager, Sue Thomason, and our wonderful volunteers”.
Both outlets are open Monday to Saturday, from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm and are situated near the Centro Comercial Hispania in San Javier. Donations of large and small household items, electrical appliances, bric-a-brac, clothes, accessories and jewellery are always welcome, so please get in touch with Sue on 615 016 035 to find out how you can donate. Collection and delivery is available for those large and bulky items and house clearances are a speciality.
