Tibidabo Amusement Park holds the charity festival "Un cop de mà"
Charity tickets are now on sale at a reduced price and part of the proceeds will go to participating NGO’s
Today, 17 June, and for the ninth year running, Tibidabo Amusement Park has held the charity festival “Un cop de mà” (Lending a Hand). The festival, organised together with the Real Dreams Foundation, aims to raise awareness and publicise the work of local NGO’s. In this family-friendly environment, the boys and girls of Barcelona have therefore learned how they can help other children all over the world.
By holding "Un cop de mà", Tibidabo is once again renewing its commitment to social responsibility initiatives. Part of the proceeds collected from the tickets, sold at a significant discount, will go towards the organisations taking part. Throughout the day, NGO’s have organised various social responsibility awareness workshops for the children, who have also been able to enjoy the usual Tibidabo rides and other activities, such as the “batucada” drum show by the Sarrià Drummers.
The following organisations took part:
