Sintra – December 5, 2016 – Penha Longa Resort is helping to make Christmas a little more magical for children at Portugal’s charitable O Século Foundation.

A giant Christmas tree in the lobby of the resort has been adorned with letters from youngsters at the foundation with each one containing a special festive wish. Ladies and Gentlemen staying at Penha Longa are invited to take a letter and make that wish come true.

“This is the most exciting time of the year for any child and we wanted to make sure that the children at O Século did not miss out on the magic of Christmas,” said General Manager David Martinez.

“O Século is a Portuguese non-profit organisation that offers invaluable specialist support to hundreds of youngsters in need every day and every act of Christmas generosity at Penha Longa will be hugely appreciated.”

The foundation provides care for children and young people at risk, kindergarten and pre-school facilities as well as family support and social services with the aim of creating better life opportunities for youngsters.

“At Penha Longa, Christmas is about sharing unforgettable memories with family and friends. Hopefully by making a child’s wish come true at O Século we can make their Christmas Day a little more memorable as well,” added Mr. Martinez.
