Hosted at MELIÁ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa’s Amphitheatre on December 13th 2019, our annual Christmas party was once again filled with fun and laughter for the 340 Cape Verdean children who were welcomed from across Sal Island, Cape Verde. Kickstarting the festivities with games, balloon making and face painting, the exciting activities were then followed by delicious cakes and scrumptious party food!
With spirts high, and the stage entertainment leaving both the children and the adults in fits of giggles – the time came for gift giving, with each child receiving a special Christmas gift, kindly supplied by guests and staff contributions to the Cape Verde Foundation.
Delighted with the day’s festivities and pleased to be able to give back to the community that are so instrumental to The Group’s success on the Islands, Founder and Executive Chairman of The Resort Group PLC, Mr Rob Jarrett explained; “Cape Verde is everything to me. My wife is Cape Verdean and 95% of the staff that work with me are Cape Verdean – the country is everything and I will not stop giving back”
Committed to making a difference to the lives of children in Cape Verde, our annual Christmas party recognises that every child should have a gift to open this Christmas, and as always, we are overwhelmingly grateful for the support and donations received from our staff, guests and supporters who have helped make this happen.
Spreading love and joy is what Christmas is all about and we are grateful to be able to host a day that will forever remain a cherished memory for all.
So, from the Cape Verde Foundation to you, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
