APPROXIMATELY 1,000 students from Adra have participated in the regional ‘Save the Children’ charity race.

Students from the IES Gaviota and Abdera de Adra schools took part in the race, which was set up by Adra Council and the Provincial Council of Almeria, in support of the important work carried out by the NGO.

The race took place on the Poniente Promenade and Adra Mayor, Manuel Cortés, and the Councilor for Citizen Participation, Elisa Fernández, were present at the awards ceremony to crown the winners of the charity competition

As well as the race, there were also games and competitions on the beach, to help raise funding and awareness for the cause.
