LAST week on July 30, representatives of the Knitted Knockers of Spain Association visited the Palliative Care Centre of Cudeca Hospice to donate a number of breast prostheses, which are hand-woven by their volunteers.

The visit was attended by the President of the Knitted Knockers association, Maria Bailey and the coordinator of the Cudeca Hospice charity shops, Katie O´Neill.

The goal of the association is to help women who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy by supplying free knitted prostheses which are handmade by volunteers throughout the Costa del Sol, using 100 per cent treated cotton yarn and non-allergenic fillers.


Starting this week, they will be available free of charge in different cup sizes, at the Cudeca Hospice charity shops and you can locate your nearest store at
