THE community of Finestrat held a fundraiser at the weekend to raise cash for the town’s August fiestas.
Residents and visitors gathered at Plaza La Torreta de Finestrat to enjoy the festival of Sant Antoni del Porquet, the first event of the town’s calendar during which an auction was held.
Organised by the Llampuga Comissió 2020, with the support of the Department of Large Public Parties, the fundraiser began the blessing of animals by the parish priest, D. Vicent Castaño.
Councillor for Fiestas, Héctor Baldó, thanked for the massive attendance and support, and congratulated the Llampuga “for the organisation of this event that was postponed last weekend because of the storm”.
It’s not yet known how much was raised.
