Walking football team Mis Amigos turned out in strength for the annual Walk for Life in Arboleas and raised €500. The team, sponsored by Calida Homes, has over 60 members and is based in Los Gallardos where there is an excellent pitch.
At a walking football tournament in Huercal Overa earlier this year, Richard Clarke of Calida Homes mentioned the walk and one of the team’s organisers, Malcolm Taylor, was able to get almost 30 players and wives to attend and do the 6 kilometre walk on May 5th.
Richard Clarke’s clients and friends raised a further €350. Richard said “Rich, Andrea and all at Calida offer huge thanks to all our friends and clients who joined us at this year’s walk4life. Between us we raised an incredible 850 Euros. A staggering 500 Euros of this was raised by the squad and wives of Mis Amigos the Calida Homes walking football team who attended the event for the first time. Simply bowled over by the support and generosity for this fabulous cause”
