451 people registered for this year’s Walk for Life on Saturday.  They walk 6 k or 3k in blistering heat and high humidity.  Well done! The committee want to say thank you to every one of them, to their sponsors and those who came to cheer them on. There were at least 800 people in The Town Hall square for the party afterwards.  It was a two-day event with a concert on Friday night featuring Steve Jackson, Acoustic Hits and The New Band.  The entertainers on Saturday night were Danny Guitarrista, Danielle Hurst and The All Skas. 

Thanks to the Ayuntamiento for all their help, to Almeria Radio for compering the day, to Ovie for the warm-up, to the wonderful musicians, to the caterers, to our photographer Mike Holliday and Christine Axelsen for the dog show.

About Us

Walk for Life, Arboleas is a small group of volunteers helping sufferers of cancer and their families within a 25 km radius of the village.

For more than 10 years, we have provided financial support    including help with mobility, translation, and transport – and every client has one to one support, individual to their needs and with complete confidentiality.

Money is raised through fund raising events such as the annual walk in Arboleas, dinner dance and through support from local events such as Quiz and music nights in bars in the area.

The support of local people means that we can continue to offer help that isn’t otherwise available, and the team is grateful to all who   contribute.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, or have a loved one who has, and need help or support contact our Welfare Team Lead – Irene Lee-Barber   Tel: 643 63 81 77

For other enquiries, fundraising, volunteering please contact our Co-ordinator – Claire Harper  Tel: 644 60 22 49
