The Diabetic Support Group was founded by Anne and Frank Bowles along with Martin and Barbara Rhead. Both couples have a relationship with diabetes. The original idea was conceived by Anne & Frank Bowles who are both members of the Mijas Lacala Lions, Anne is the Secretary & Frank is the press officer, Martin Rhead was the founder. 

It was discovered that there was little or no support for diabetics in Spain through the normal channels, so the La Cala Lions, through at the time Welfare Officer Martin Rhead, helped Anne & Frank to get started under the umbrella of their recognised and established organisation. 

Up to now the support group has helped many people in many ways. The Treasurer of The Lions is also the Treasurer of the Diabetic Support Group. 

The HELPLINE Tel: 952 464 184 is available for a quick response to any diabetic queries. 

Anne holds meetings every last Friday of each month at Cafe La Vida Fuengriola at 11am and also at Sol Andalusi in Alhaurin de la Torre on the second Friday of every month again at 11am. NO MEETINGS IN AUGUST!


Meetings are now being held at Nerja.
