Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day

The Smile Foundation and CLC World’s three Tenerife resorts gave lots of fun support in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day. After a day of games, group dances and raffles, The Smile Foundation presented a cheque of almost €7,700 to the Down Tenerife.

On 20th March, guests at CLC Paradise, CLC Sunningdale Village and CLC Monterey joined in the fun with the resorts’ animation team, Team Marina, raising a total of €3,847.89 in the process. From group dances by the pool to a Team Marina triathlon and fabulous raffle prizes, including the star prize of 7 nights’ accommodation in Florida, guests were generous with their time and donations.

The Smile Foundation, CLC World’s charity, matched every euro donated bringing the total to a fantastic €7,695.78. The raffles were superbly supported by local companies with prizes ranging from local excursions to the grand prize of a CLC World Florida holiday, the lucky winner of which was Mr Robert Field.

The funds will assist Down Tenerife in their excellent work improving the quality of life for people with Down Syndrome on Tenerife.
