The Cape Verde Foundation Christmas 2017

Posted in: General

It is that time of year again and The Cape Verde Foundation is gearing up to launch the Christmas campaign for the children of Cape Verde.

It is with great excitement that we look to gather 350 schoolchildren from Santa Maria, Espargos and Palmeira at the MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa amphitheatre to receive a gift each from Santa Claus himself at this year’s Cape Verde Foundation Christmas Party. We are asking our loyal supporters to help us raise £3000 to cover a gift donation of €10 per child and a small present to open on the day. You may have seen in previous years the joy that this small but significant gesture has brought to the children. It is our favourite time of year for the looks on their face alone.

The party is scheduled for 15th December between 3pm and 6pm and, as usual, we have plenty of incredible things planned for the children. That’s why we urgently need donations to be able to make the day as special as we can and we hope you can support us!

2.45pm – 3pm – Music and animation team to be ready to welcome children

3.30pm – 3.40pm – A welcome from Mr Jarrett, accompanied by a representative of the Foundation

4pm – 4.30pm – MELIàDunas Beach Resort & Spa animation team perform their in-house production

4.30pm – 5pm – Refreshments and games to be played with the children

5pm – 6pm – A visit from Santa Claus and gifts to be given to each child

See below for a taste of what we hope to recreate this year as our annual event goes from strength to strength. Or, to read all about it in detail you can read about last year’s event here.




It’s a worthy cause that makes the children of Sal Island smile every single year and we want to make sure this is the best year yet, can you help? Every donation makes a child’s Christmas.
