ALMUÑECAR turned green on Tuesday as the municipality marked World Cancer Day.
The Town Hall façade and the Puerta de Almuñecar were illuminated in green light and AECC Spanish cancer association volunteers released green balloons.
The local AECC branch head Conchi Garcia and Almuñecar Mayor Trinidad Herrera unfurled a banner from the Town Hall balcony featuring the messages “Call it cancer”, “When you break the taboo the confidence begins” and “When the taboo disappears, hope appears.”
The Mayor said the council wanted to show its “support and solidarity with people suffering from this disease and its support for the great work done by the local AECC volunteers in our municipality.
“At the same time we call for more resources for investigation, prevention and early detention.”
In the morning the AECC ran stalls with information for the public at the health centre, the municipal market and on Carrera de la Concepcion near to Avenida Andalucia.
The Town Hall and the Puerta de Almuñecar will keep their green glows throughout this week.
