CUDECA reduced its deficit by a third last year, as a result in a surge in donations and support from the local community. This was revealed by Cudeca Foundation founder Joan Hunt and her team during the presentation of their Annual Results this week. Just when it seemed that some of the Cudeca services would have to be done away with, economic help began to arrive as well as enough volunteers to attend to 100 patients more than in 2009.
The foundation hopes that properties it has received properties will cover expenses for the coming year, but despite the improved results, the future remains uncertain, as it needs continual support to continue providing free palliative care from their Benalmadena hospice.
The Golden Cudeca Pin 2010 was presented to the Good Companions club, represented by Tony White, in recognition of the €123,000 raised for Cudeca since 1995.
