BRITISH author has thrown his weight behind a new ‘Cudeca-style’ hospice on the Costa Tropical.

Chris Stewart, author of Driving over Lemons, is vice-president of Acompalia, a palliative care project planned for Motril.

Stewart is helping founder Tina Emmott raise the €1.5 million needed for the hospice – which has already achieved approval from the town hall.

“In Malaga you have Cudeca, but there’s nothing like that for people in Granada,” said Emmott.

“Our programme of care will be completely free to patients and their families and will include both outpatient and inpatient facilities,” she added.
