The Athletic Football Club Fuengirola are among the many local associations that holds annual toy appeals, and this week they delivered dozens of toys, board games, dolls and teddy bears, among other things, to the Adintre association.

The collection campaign was carried out with the assistance of the town hall on December 21, along with the festive football match between parents and coaches of the football club.

The gifts were delivered to the association on Wednesday by several representatives of the club, who were accompanied by the Fuengirola councillor for Sports, María Hernández, and councillor for Social Welfare and Families, Rocío Rodríguez.

The toys will now be distributed among families in danger of social exclusion.
