On Sunday 16th March we were at the “Mercat Figueter de Capellades” to present our initiative and to get funds to continue helping Àlex. The experience was a great success and was possible thanks to Gràcia Bartroli, who gave us loot in front of her store “El racó de la Gràcia“.
During this market, which was held in a beautiful day, we showed the initiative to everyone who visited our stand, showing the solidarity and personalized items from the Associació Nash Alex Sasha, which allowed us to collect more funds. It was a pleasure for us to meet all the people at Capellades and spread our initiative.
The “Mercat Figueter de Capellades” is the main annual fair of this village next to Igualada. This fair has began centuries ago, when people used to sell different Easter products, such as salted fish, cod and nuts. Among them, the figs were the most popular product (and that is why its name). Now this fair shows the commerces, industries and cultural tradition of this village to the general public.
Therefore, Capellades thank you!
