Spain - Footballer Carlos Soler and IKEA renovate classroom in "Entre Amics" Day Center for children at risk
Valencia, Spain - April 2021 – On 14 April, the Valencia CF footballer, and Salesian past pupil, Carlos Soler presented a social project with the support of IKEA Valencia: one of the classrooms of the “Entre Amics” for children at risk of social exclusion at the “Salesianos San Juan Bosco” in Valencia was designed and furnished. In this way, the footballer made his contribution to improving the education and common living space of many children. “I'm happy to be able to help people who really need it by doing something good. I don't want my life to revolve only around football,” said Soler. The footballer designed his ideal home for IKEA, as a model to exhibit, and in exchange the Swedish company offered him the opportunity to choose a social project in favor of children. In the presentation, Soler inaugurated the classroom with the cutting of the ribbon and placed his autograph on the commemorative plaque of the social project. He was satisfied with the initiative as well as with the function performed by the "Fundación Inicziale Solidaria Ángel Tomás".
