Cervera, solidarity fire.

On Saturday and Sunday, August 30th and 31st, we went to “Fira del Gran Boc“, which takes place simultaneusly with “Aquelarre“. Thanks to the cooperation of Cervera’s City Council, through the person in charge of the department Celebrations and Traditions, and the person in charge of “Aquelarre“. They are the promoters and organizers of the festival and thanks to them we could set our stand at the big Patio of the University of this beautiful and historic city.

We are glad of the reception we had in Cervera, the treatment of its people and its visitors. Moreover, we could enjoy some of the best moments surrounding this great festivity such as the start of the “correfoc de l’Aquelarre”. It was awesome!

Thanks to all the money we raised we can continue helping Àlex… and what is more important, we were able to explain our initiative to a lot of people. We hope this will help us in the future.

We want to thank all the people whose collaboration make all this possible!

Second week of September: Catalan rumba rhythm and culture at everyone’s reach.

This second week of September has been very intense for us. We have been to two different events just a few days apart to keep informing about our initiative and to raise funds to help Àlex.

On Wednesday September 10th we went to the festival of Catalan rumba from Catalonia “RUMBKP Festival” that took place in Capellades (Barcelona). We want to thank the Rumbkp organization for letting us place our stand since the festival started at 11:30.p.m until it ended. The wonderful weather we had during the night let us enjoy the groups taking part in the festival: Terratombats, Bongo Botrako and Oques Grasses.

Thanks very much to Terratombats, Catalan rumba in its pure essence. We had a great time listening and looking to them live. They shared some minutes with us and took photos with people at our stand. They also helped us explain to the audience our purpose speaking about Àlex from the stage and wearing a T-Shirt from our association. Moving around to help Àlex, we are able to enjoy special moments. This was one of them.

We followed on our activities Friday and Saturday September 12th and 13th, at “Mercat d’Artesania i Paradistes” from 11 in the morning until 1 a.m. This is a complementary activity of the “Fira Tàrrega – Teatre al Carrer” which took place in Tàrrega (Lleida) during two sunny and hot days. Thousands of people come to visit this fair, taking part in this cultural festivity. Thanks to the collaboration of “Fira Tàrrega” we could set our stand.

As always, we continue moving forward with a lot of dedication, effort and willingness. Very hopeful, enjoying this time and feeling satisfied with all the positive parts this project has.These months of effort have been worthy for all we have been able to raise, the diffusion and all the new friends we have made.

Thank you very much to everyone who is making this possible!
