The Walk for Life 2024.

The Annual Walk for Life is on Saturday May 4th.

This has become one of the biggest charity events in the Arboleas calendar and this year we aim to raise as much money as we can to continue supporting local people who are suffering from cancer.

This will be a 2-day event.  On Friday we will be entertained by the fabulous Odyssey and on Saturday after the walk we will again have the New Band from Granada who were so fantastic last year.  Other acts will be confirmed and announced shortly.

There will be a night market on the Friday evening so please contact if you would like to book a stall.

Sponsorship forms are now available, mail

An Amazing Challenge!

Graham Barton is raising £2,000 to Walk for Life Arboleas in memory of my mum Penelope Walker by doing an amazing challenge.

“On the 14th February 2024 my team (5 of us) and I will be completing a challenge which will consist of climbing the external staircase of the 245 Hammersmith building. As a team we will be climbing to the top and back 269 times, this will be done carrying a total of 1345kg in rucksacks and gravity bags. In addition, we will also complete 1345 press-ups. “

He has set up a go fund me page.  For more details see the news section


451 people registered for this year’s Walk for Life and raised an incredible  €21,667.76.  A huge thank you to all involved and to everyone who sponsored the walkers.



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
