Hombre Nuevo is one of the projects

APARU is currently supporting. It is a

not-for profit organisation founded in

Cordoba, Argentina in 2002. It provides

care and assistance to homeless people,

focusing on their physical and psychological

rehabilitation, life-transformation and on

the recovery of their human dignity.


In December 2013, Carolina Garcia

Marengo, one of APARU's executive

committee members, visited the organisation

to learn more about their inspiring work

and how funds donated by APARU

are invested.


We hope you enjoy this video and help us

raise more funds for this fantastic project.

SUPER HERO RUN - 18 MAY 2014 PDF Print E-mail


Congratulations to our runners who reached the finishing line on Sunday 18 May at Regent's Park #SuperHeroRun to support our charity projects in Argentina.


All proceeds will be donated to Asociacion Hombre Nuevo (homeless shelter) and La Doble Ayuda (rural schools support). For more information about the inspiring work that they do, please click here: Projects




The Asado is the Anglo-Argentine Society’s main fundraising event and relies on members and friends to make it the unique occasion it is: catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and enjoy the many aspects of a traditional Argentine barbecue and entertainment.

This year APARU is also supporting this fantastic event and proceeds from tickets sold by APARU will benefit our current projects: "La Doble Ayuda" and "Hombre Nuevo".

The day includes: a traditional Argentine asado menu including delicious Argentine beef, spit-roasted lamb, Argentine chorizos (served as the traditional Chori-pan), morcilla (black pudding), chicken, a variety of salads, fruit, coffee and this year a glass of wine is included for every adult.

There will be a bar selling a selection of fine Argentine wines, beer and soft drinks, as well as a number of stalls offering a range of Argentine products including favourites such as alfajores, empanadas, dulce de leche and ice cream.

But it is not all just about food and drink! There will be plenty of entertainment including live music, tango dancers, singers, the now legendary Luis Segas, and the customary impromptu football match on the fields of Esher RFC.

Ticket Prices: £36 for Adults | £25 for 13-25 years old |  Free for Under 13s (**Please note that APARU ticket prices include a £6 donation for our projects).

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you!
