If you are looking for a way to meet new people while learning a new skill and benefitting your community then Arboretum Marbella is the answer!
The aim of the charity is to create a more sustainable future by helping communities to take the steps which they need in order to reduce their carbon footprint, benefitting the environment.
There are many events which will be taking place throughout the year, which will allow you to be part of the cause. The “Lend a Hand” event is held on the second Saturday of each month, allowing you to go and help plant some new trees within a newly established forest. You are able to name your tree and then watch it grow.
Another event which may be of interest is the “Gratiferia” which takes place on the first Sunday of each month. The purpose of the event is to take along any unwanted items which you may have lying around in the back of a cupboard and simply swap them with other peoples items or give them away, free of charge.
If you do not have anything to take along, don’t worry, the event is open to everyone and you are still more than welcome to go along and help yourself to any of the items on display. Free haircuts, fresh lemonade and a belly dancing show were also part of the last Gratiferia, making it a great day out for all.
If you would like to get involved, visit the Arboretum website, the charity are always looking for new volunteers and it is a great way to meet people while helping the local area.

Supporting your local charities is a great way to meet people and get involved with your community. We’re helping animal charity ADANA to recruit more volunteers and supporters and thought those people new to the area could really benefit from this opportunity.
ADANA has around 150 dogs in their kennel near to Estepona and is desperately looking for volunteers to walk the dogs and help out around the kennels. They also need people to work in the office helping with administration for the charity. If you’d like to help, but would prefer not to go up to the kennels, they also have a charity shop which needs volunteers and they run regular coffee mornings and fundraising events which you can attend.
