Unicaja Banco shows one more year its support to the Agrupación de Cofradías de Semana Santa de Málaga (Malaga Holy Week Brotherhoods’ Association), with the aim of facilitating their activities. For that purpose, both institutions have renewed the collaboration agreement that they have had for more than 15 years and which includes a comprehensive and specific financial service that the bank puts at the disposal of the Association, on advantageous terms, especially in view of the difficult situation caused by the COVID-19 crisis.

 

This agreement reinforces the existing relationship between both institutions and it has been signed by the Chairman of Unicaja Banco, Manuel Azuaga, and by the Chairman of the Agrupación de Cofradías de Semana Santa de Málaga, Pablo Atencia.

 

The agreement will benefit the 41 brotherhoods member of the Association, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The anniversary celebration will consist of a series of cultural and religious events, with the sponsorship of Unicaja Banco.

 

The support to the work of the Brotherhoods’ Association falls within the actions that Unicaja Banco develops aimed at the promotion and dissemination of Malaga Holy Week and of the work of Brotherhoods as the repositories of important social, religious, cultural, historic and artistic values, and as generators of a relevant social, cultural and charitable activity in the city.

 

The agreement entered into includes a full range of financial products and services¸ on advantageous terms and designed by Unicaja Banco to meet the needs and facilitate the activities of both the Agrupación de Cofradías de Semana Santa de Málaga and of its different brotherhoods.

 

The products and services offered include financing for investment; current accounts with special conditions; specific services to manage payments and collections and to manage tax payments, or digital banking services.

 

Unicaja Banco also offers a wide range of insurance products, advised and managed by Unimediación (insurance company of Grupo Unicaja Banco). These insurance policies may be collective or individual and may cover accidents, eventualities, damage to the Brotherhoods’ Houses (casas hermandades) or museums, liability and heritage.

 

Sponsorship of the 100th anniversary activities

In addition to the agreement entered into, Unicaja Banco will sponsor the activities planned by the Agrupación de Cofradías to celebrate its 100 years of history. These include the procesión magna ‘Camino de la gloria’, scheduled to be held on 25 September and delayed due to the health situation, with no new date set. The procesión magna expects the participation of 16 floats belonging to 16 brotherhoods.

 

The celebration of the 100th anniversary also includes other initiatives which will have the collaboration of Unicaja Banco, such as exhibitions, an extraordinary via crucis or the 4th International Congress of Brotherhoods and Fraternities, scheduled in Malaga from 23 to 25 September.

 

The Agrupación de Cofradías de Semana Santa de Málaga, established on 21 January 1921, is the first institution of that kind established in Spain, with the aim of representing and coordinating their interests and the public celebrations.

 

It was established in order to gather all the religious fraternities of Malaga in order to enhance the processions of the Holy Week and to promote the collaboration between Brotherhoods.

 

It currently gathers 41 brotherhoods, with a social direct support which reaches nearly 80,000 members. Among its main activities, the following should be mentioned: the organization of processions in the city and the promotion and dissemination of the Holy Week of Malaga. Social and charitable works are also remarkable, in addition to the actions carried out individually by each brotherhood.
