The Town Hall organised the transportation of the potatoes from Seville, which were collected “altruistically” by the Murcia company Carmen Natural Transport.

They will be distributed among associations and families in need, as part of the ′Agro-Rex′ project, in which Rotary Clubs of Madrid and Pozuelo have also participated.

A club spokesperson said: “We want to thank Carmen Natural Transport for making the delivery possible in a totally altruistic way.”
