June in Mallorca, events

TUESDAY 4TH JUNE is a special day for Cocos Deli in Portals. Not only will they turn 3, but they are dedicating this day to mental health awareness, something which has deeply touched their hearts recently after the sudden loss of a man very dear to Coco the owner. The cafe will be supporting mind.org and 100% of all profits made on the day will be donated to them. They want to bring together the whole Island community to spread more light and awareness on this topic. There is simply not enough help and awareness around, with suicide being the highest killer of white males under 35 in Europe. This has to change. Coco and the staff want everyone to know that “We ALL have our own battles and it’s okay to talk and feel vulnerable. We are all humans, all connected, and no matter who we are, or what we do, we all deserve that love and support.” So please go along and support them today.
