British expat embarks on epic four-day walk from Malaga to Sabinillas


EXPAT Rod Andrews is about to embark on an epic four-day walk from Malaga to Sabinillas.

The 70-year-old Brit – who was diagnosed with prostate cancer last summer – will be completing the walk to raise funds for Cudeca Hospice.

“He’s so grateful to all the help he received from Cudeca that he now wants to give something back,” said event organiser Angela Welch.

The money raised at the event will go towards covering the costs of the free-of-charge home visits offered by the hospice.

The charity helps more than 850 people with cancer, and other incurable illnesses, each year, as well as offering help to their families in Malaga province.

O’Callaghan’s bar in Sabinillas is hosing a ‘Welcome home’ party for Rod on Saturday January 31, starting at 5pm, with live music, food, a raffle and an auction.

Rod hopes to finish the walk at the Fisherman statue on the paseo maritimo, around 4pm, for those wanting to cheer him on.

For more information, to sponsor Rod or offer a raffle or auction prize, contact Angela Welch on 693 731 478.
