Support the AECC at this charity concert in Torrevieja

Well, credit must be given where credit is due, and in this case that is to the organisers of the popular “Rock Against Cancer” annual charity event – Neil Wyatt from Monroe’s Bar in Torrevieja alongside Jaime Aniorte.

This Saturday 16 June will see the third edition of this brilliant family music event taking place, in a new location – the Eras de la Sal open-air arena – due to the fact that the previous location outside the old Monroe’s Bar will not be able to cope with the number of expected visitors this year. It’s amazing to think that only after two editions, this event that raises money for the AECC charity to fight cancer has achieved such an admirable status.

No fewer than eight bands are set to perform in this Saturday’s concert, which has the backing of the Department for Charities from the Torrevieja town hall. And with names such as Sense Yuma, Kolted and The Cages on the line-up, there’s no doubt that this will be a quality event.

Yet, Rock Against Cancer is for all the family, and activities will start at midday with things like yoga, dance sessions, workshops, inflatables and various games.

The music will begin at 17.00h, and on Saturday, punk rock band Sensa Yuma, who have just finished their European tour, will perform for the very last time before retiring.

For those who want to find out more about the AECC charity, there will be an information stand installed in the Eras de la Sal, where volunteers will be selling T-shirts, wristbands, bandanas amongst other items, as well as providing information about themselves and what they do.

The last edition of Rock in Cancer raised a total of 5,300 euro for the AECC, a thousand euro more than the previous year. It is hoped that the 2018 edition will attract even more people and more money for the charity.
