The popular assertion states that an image is worth a thousand words and, in that sense, a sequence is much more clarifying than several speeches. A documentary elaborated, mounted and conceived by Atila Madrona on the last delivery in Moroccan lands surprised and touched to all the assistants to the solidary dinner to raise funds for this project that took place this Friday night in the Princesa Éboli Hotel of Pinto. It was the great surprise that awaited the evening and left no one indifferent.
In just over five minutes, this short documentary covers the long journey to the province of Ouzarzate and the delivery of material to the village of Tamezrite, mainly bicycles, but also sneakers and other sports material donated by John Smith, Sportlast and the Getafe Football Club Foundation.
“It is a spectacular video, although there is a part that is not seen and is the strength of the group, the team, the union in the face of adversity. In the end this is not the project of a single person, but is the fruit of the work of many people. It is cooperation emanating from cooperation. It is the union of people that makes it possible for us to get where we are and to do what we do”, emphasizes Paco Romero, responsible for the project within the Alberto Contador Foundation.
“It is enormously gratifying to see these images,” says Alberto Contador, who for another year did not want to miss dinner. “This trip has not lacked those hard moments in the customs, where everything is hindrances and obstacles, but everything passes. And that face of each one of the boys is something that makes you feel proud. A bicycle in this area has a totally different perspective, because it allows you to get water, to spend less time going to a school that is usually a few kilometres away…”.
Joan Massallé, representing ŠKODA, Clemente Pueyo and José Manuel García, from the Seur Foundation, or Pierluigi Negri, responsible for Tourism in Valtellina, were among the hundred attendees who attended this new edition of the fundraising dinner. Thanks to the documentary, Lahsann Yarkoubi, rais de Tamezrite, was able to launch a message for all those who make the Bicis para la Vida by ŠKODA project possible: “Thank you very much for bringing happiness to the people who live here in the village”.
The fundraising dinner of the Alberto Contador Foundation for the project Bicis para la Vida by ŠKODA was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Hotel Sercotel Princesa de Éboli de Pinto, Kometa, Caixabank, the restaurant chain La Mafia se sienta a la mesa, Ultracongelados Delfín and Dana Marketing Solidario. There is a Table 0 available to all interested in making their contribution through the account ES79 2100 1983 2102 0037 5860.
