Walk For Life Calendar 2018 Now on Sale

On September 5th Museo Pedro Gilabert in Arboleas saw the launch of the very first calendar for Walk For Life Arboleas.  All the advertisers, sponsors, photographers, long term supporters and members of the Town Council were invited to a special reception.  The guests were greeted with a glass of cava and the ladies of the Walk For Life committee had supplied a lavish buffet of finger food at no cost to the charity.

The 13 images in the calendar, chosen from over 100 entered in a competition earlier this year were on display in the side gallery.

The calendars are just €5 each.  They include 13 local images taken by local photographers.  The images are as detachable postcards and the calendars are supplied in robust envelopes for posting.

The Calendar has UK and Spanish national holidays and local information such as emergency numbers and market days. The sponsors and advertisers have covered all production and print costs so every cent of your €5 goes to the charity to help people affected by cancer.  Walk For Life is a local registered charity that helps cancer sufferers and their family members in Arboleas and the surrounding areas.  Walk For Life offers assistance with translation costs, counselling, transport and much more.

The calendars are now on sale in Albox at Sol Supermercado, Glad Rags, Almeria Homes and Wavelengths. In Arboleas at Total Entertainment, Padpal Store, Coviran,  Sophias and Calida Homes. In Zurgena at ALO Services (Amanda Oakley).
