Anfi Golf Tournament Fundraiser for Pequeño Valiente
24/05/2012 - The Anfi Group is delighted to consolidate its ongoing support for the children’s charity, Pequeño Valiente with its up coming golf tournament at Anfi Tauro.
Anfi employees have been collaborating with Pequeño Valiente since the end of 2011 with the sale of calendars and a children’s book and the tournament which takes place on the 2nd June is the next in a series of planned fundraisers to be followed in October by a singing a dancing extravaganza.
Pequeño Valiente is a non-profit organization that was set up by parents of children with cancer. The charity’s aim is to help children who have cancer and their families by providing them with all the necessary support they need to improve their quality of life throughout the illness.
The support the organisation offers is wide ranging – depending on the needs that arise.
For example parents from other islands often have to give up their jobs so they can share twenty-four hour rotas at their child’s bedside at the Hospital Materno, here in Gran Canaria. These families often find themselves in financial dire straits and welcome the much needed food vouchers or bus passes vouchers that PV offers them.
PV also helps subsidise the cost of trips to mainland hospitals where desperate parents receive second opinions – often bringing them renewed hope.
To alleviate the sense of fear and isolation families face, the charity organizes monthly social get-togethers where families can unwind and receive mutual support together. There is also a respite project which allows parents a couple hours break in the afternoon when they can shower, change and re-charge their batteries. Cancer drains carers as well as patients.
Also a qualified teacher is on hand to offer tuition to the children with cancer in order for them to continue with their studies. The philosophy of Pequeño Valiente is to help the kids live as normal a life as possible.
The association also runs craft projects in the hospital. This helps to break up the long, monotonous afternoons. PV’s philosophy is to be a friend amongst the shadows, offering help where it’s not expected.
