The president of the Athletic Club, Aitor Elizegi, accompanied by the vice-president Mikel Martínez and the president of the Athletic Club Foundation Juan Carlos Ercoreca, has met, in the run-up to the match against Sevilla FC, with the volunteers who participate in the Help Programme in San Mamés to thank them on behalf of the Club for their altruistic work.

Around thirty young people, all of them under 35 years of age, ready with green aprons in which the word BOLUNTARIOA is read on the back, are waiting in each of the doors of the Cathedral from an hour and a quarter before the start of the match, the arrival of people with reduced mobility to help them and accompany them to their localities, facilitating access and seating in their seats.

The Help Program in San Mamés became operational in the 2013/14 season, after the inauguration of the new field, and in each meeting it provides its services to about fifty people with reduced mobility, either because they are wheelchair-bound, because of their advanced age or any other circumstance that hinders their mobility.

At the event, held in one of the lobbies of San Mamés, Elizegi pronounced a few words of recognition and then, together with Martínez and Ercoreca, he chatted amicably with the aid workers about the activities of the Volunteer Programme of the Athletic Club Foundation. Thanks to the collaboration with Lantegi Batuak, three people with intellectual disabilities are part of this team of development workers who help people with reduced mobility in San Mamés.

In short, people whose participation in this programme favours normalisation, taking steps in favour of their full social inclusion, work and access to leisure.
