Activities implemented by the Company

  • Charity lunches, adapting the format in 2020 in light of the healthcare crisis, facilitating an office delivery service in order to continue the collaboration.
  • Assistance from Lar España employees to help the association’s members prepare for job interviews.
  • Regular financial donations.
  • Employment (administrative tasks) for Norte Joven students via 6-month long internships.

Aladina Foundation


The Aladina Foundation is a Spanish non-profit organisation which aims to help and support children of all ages with cancer, and their families.

Lar España and the Altamira Lar Foundation are undertaking an ambitious project to completely refurbish the paediatric haematology and oncology rooms of Hospital Virgen del Rocío (Seville), a leading centre in Spain for children’s oncology. The project is called “A new unit full of colour and fun for children of all ages with cancer in Seville”.

Cáritas Foundation

Lar España Real Estate, as part of its firm commitment to help local communities with the health crisis triggered by COVID-19, reached an agreement with Cáritas to support a project helping the most vulnerable families hit hard by the pandemic.

The overriding objective of the project is to improve the living conditions of the communities in the catchment areas of Lar España’s main assets, engaging the centres’ teams and employees in the actions carried out.

Donations totalled €150,000, which will be funnelled through the following shopping centres and retail parks: Albacenter, Portal de la Marina, Ánec Blau, Megaparl Barakaldo, As Termas, Las Huertas, El Rosal, Txingudi, Lagoh and Gran Vía de Vigo. This initiative developed with Cáritas is on top of other charitable and social support campaignschampioned by Lar España’s shopping centres and retail parks during the state of emergency, helping the communities most in need with donations of food, sanitary material, technology, children’s food vouchers, etc.


Lar España, framed by its commitment to society, entered into an agreement with AUARA, which earmarks 100% of its dividends for the development of drinking water projects for those most in need, raising money by selling uniquely designed and sustainable products.

To date, they have brought safe drinking water and sanitation to more than 42,000 people, provided more than 34 million litres of water in developing countries and developed 70 infrastructures in 16 countries.

Lar España wants to help it do so, which is why from April 2019 it installed the company’s water vending machines in its shopping centres. All of the moneycollected from the sale of those products will be used to fund drinking water projects. The company also placed stickers on its doors to encourage its customers to feel involved by making them see they are buying more than just water.

The agreement places Lar España at the forefront of a charitable initiative that fosters sustainable packaging while raising awareness about the lack of drinking water in many places.
