The mayor of Adeje, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, has announced that the box office proceeds from all the cultural events organized on the occasion of the town’s Patron Saint Festivities will be used to help the island of La Palma in the face of the crisis generated by the eruption of the volcano.

«At first, we considered suspending the events, as a show of solidarity with the sister island, but we understand that this action not only does not help the victims of La Palma at all, but would harm the cultural sector hired for the realization of those acts, just at a time when the economy is beginning to reactivate for thousands of families. At that point, the Government team has decided that the best way to help the island of La Palma was to allocate the proceeds we obtain from these events to contribute to the needs of the affected people ”, as stated by the first mayor of Adejero . In addition, the mayor explained that a zero row will be established to raise more solidarity funds for La Palma and that the government team «is studying other forms of aid from the City Council.»

The events scheduled for the Adeje Patron Saint Festivities, which can be consulted from today on the municipal website www.adeje.es, have been chosen based on the current level of alarm on the island of Tenerife. Although it will not be possible to hold mass events such as the pilgrimage, the capacity of the events will be limited and with the proper sanitary measures, the City Council has opted for the organization of various concerts and cultural events.
