As well as our lovely Lanzarote Information 2022 Calendar  we always like to keep an eye out for Lanzarote-based charity calendars.

Lanzarote charities, like many people and businesses, have felt the pinch of the current times as they have often lost fundraising streams. The calendars are a great way to make up a bit for that. Please, consider helping them by buying them. They make wonderful presents and stocking fillers, too!

This is our compilation for 2022:
