After a successful few months of appealing and collecting shoeboxes, we were thrilled to hold our Christmas Party on Monday 12th December, during which we handed out the much-anticipated presents to the children of Sal Island, Cape Verde.
Hosted by The Resort Group PLC Founder, Rob Jarrett and President of the Foundation, Analita Fernandes Das Neves, it was with great excitement that we gathered 350 schoolchildren from Santa Maria, Espargos and Palmeira at the MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa amphitheatre to receive a shoebox each from Santa Claus himself. The day began, after face painting, balloon animals and food, with performances from some very popular entertainers. Over in Cape Verde for the opening of The Resort Group PLC’s third Resort, Llana Beach Hotels and the Bikini Beach Club, a couple of Britain and Cape Verde’s most-loved stars, Jamelia and Fantcha, took the time to bring the party to the children. This was followed by a passionate performance from the resident animation team of a much-loved classic – The Lion King. It all went down a storm with the children, who cheered loudly for each and every act.
