Tenerife, March 2018- To celebrate World Down Syndrome Awareness Day on 21st March, Fundación CLC World in Tenerife launched a fund-raising campaign aimed at this group.
The three CLC World resorts in Tenerife; CLC Paradise, CLC Sunningdale Village and CLC Monterey, carried out numerous activities, with both guests and the entertainment team, Team Marina, taking part. They raised €4,974.73 while Fundación CLC World committed to doubling it, eventually reaching the wonderful total of €9,949.46.
The various events involved plenty of activities around the pool, along with balloon twisting, a triathlon with Team Marina, food tastings and dancing. In addition, there was a raffle and we’re grateful for the collaboration of a number of local businesses who were generous enough to donate several prizes.
A holiday to CLC World in Florida was won by Mr and Mrs Quinlivan.
CLC World staff also played their part by wearing mismatched socks to promote acceptance and inclusion on behalf of people with Down Syndrome.
The funds collected will go to help the group, Down Tenerife, whose aim is to improve the quality of life for people with this condition through support programs based on their needs and the needs of their families.
