QUEEN Sofia will be in Malaga today to celebrate 150 years of the International Red Cross Movement.

The ceremony, which will take place at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos, will see awards given to those who have worked with the organisation across the country.

Those set to receive awards are the Alicia Koplowitz Foundation, the kidney transplant unit of the Carlos
Haya Hospital and the University of Malaga.

The Red Cross now counts over 200,000 volunteers in Spain.

The group aims to provide aid for those most in need both locally and internationally.
