The Associació de Penyes organizes a new edition of the ‘Fiesta de la Solidaridad’, a blood donation day

The Association of Supporters Clubs ‘Verge del Sofratge’, in collaboration with the Department of Festivals and the Transfusion Center of the Valencian Community, organizes a new edition of the ‘Festival of Solidarity’, a day of blood and marrow donation that He is now 22 years old.

This ‘Fiesta de la Solidaridad’ will be held next Tuesday, May 24, in the morning and afternoon at the City Hall building. Thus, supporters club members or the general population participating in this donation day will be able to go to the municipal facilities between 09:30 and 13:30, or from 16:30 to 21:00.

The Councilor for Fiestas, Jesús Carrobles, has pointed out that “year after year, supporters of supporters devote themselves to this event, certifying more than 2,000 blood donations in one day and evidencing that Benidorm is a city of solidarity and commitment”. “If we take into account that with each donation up to three lives can be saved, the supportive gesture of the supporters’ club group has a significant impact”, he added.
Carrobles recalled that “the experience of previous editions shows that the ‘Solidarity Festival’ is also a magnificent opportunity to attract new blood donors and also, for several years, bone marrow donors”; and hence he has congratulated the Penyes Association directed by Adrián Romero “for organizing this activity for yet another year”.

The requirements to donate are: to be between 18 and 65 years old, to be in good health, to donate well hydrated, to weigh more than 50 kilograms, and to carry a DNI or a donor card.
