Day of the Red Cross Banner celebration


THIS Saturday, solidarity will take to the streets for the celebration of the Day of the Red Cross Banner (Dia de la Banderita).

The event is traditionally celebrated in December but had to be postponed in 2016 due to bad weather conditions in Denia.

Twenty-five local associations including The Rotary Club, Club Kite Surf and Euro Club Denia are collaborating with the Red Cross in organising activities for all of the family to enjoy.

The money raised on Saturday will go to the projects of the Red Cross Youth, which focus on children in hospital, reinforcement in schools, toy giving and toy libraries, as explained by director of Red Cross Youth, Tamara Núñez.

The programme starts in the morning at 10.00am with a performance from the Russian Cultural Mosaic Association, who will put their own twist on the classic favourite, Cinderella. At 10.30am, make way for the House of Andalusia, with the participation of dance groups of all ages and a choir. At 11.15am the group The 3 Music will arrive before the  performance ends with the swing dancers of Spirit of St Louis Marina Alta.

There will be bouncy castles and children’s activities next to the stage, located at the end of Calle Marqués de Campo and celebrations will continue throughout the day.
Red Cross Denia is currently exploring the possibility of moving the Day of the Red Cross Banner to October, and the campaign Tú Vales for 100, usually held at Christmas, to the months of July and August.
