ŠKODA joins Bicis para la Vida project

The Fundación Alberto Contador and the Hotel Sercotel Princesa Éboli de Pinto celebrate a solidarity dinner to raise funds next October 26 where the agreement will be presented.

ŠKODA, the Czech automobile company that is part of the Volkswagen group, intensifies its collaboration with the Fundación Alberto Contador. The brand, which already sponsors the different sports formations of the entity -junior, sub23 and continental categories- expands its presence in the world of the bicycle hand in hand with the Madrid institution with its presence in a more supportive side.

ŠKODA, one of the companies with the greatest presence in the world of universal cycling, will now sponsor the Bicis para la Vida project, the initiative co-sponsored by the Fundación Alberto Contador and the Seur Foundation; a commitment to give a second life to unused bicycles for less favoured groups, or those at risk of exclusion, and isolated communities in Third World or developing countries.

This important agreement, which brings new energy to Bicis para la Vida, will live its official launch during the solidarity dinner organised on 26 October by the Hotel Sercotel Princesa de Éboli and the Fundación Alberto Contador. A gala, with its scheduled start at 20.30 pm, which will raise funds to address a new shipment of material to the Moroccan High Atlas.

“That a leading company in its sector such as ŠKODA is involved in the activities of the foundation is something that generates a deep gratitude. They support our sports structures with their vehicles and since they knew about the existence and motivation of Bicis para la Vida they have expressed their interest in supporting and sustaining it. We are very grateful and we are sure that their support will help us to popularize and strengthen this project,” says Fran Contador, General Manager of the teams.

This solidarity dinner, with a price of 35 euros per person whose amount will go entirely to the program, would be impossible without the collaboration of Kometa, Caixabank, the restaurants La Mafia se sienta a la mesa, Ultracongelados Delfín and Dana Marketing Solidario.

For all those who can not attend and want to collaborate with the project, they can do so through Mesa 0 (ES88 2038 2453 5560 0018 9919).
