Cancer-sufferers set for a luxury holiday

CALLAO Salvaje’s Atlantic Holiday Centre hotel has donated week-long, VIP holidays to 12 Adeje individuals, who have been fighting various cancers.

They are all under the care of the Spanish Cancer Association and Adeje Council’s socio-sanitary programme.

The deserving dozen, who are also dealing with ongoing oncological treatments with members of their family, were invited to receive their vouchers from Adeje Health Councillor Amada Trujillo Bencomo, and Atlantic’s hotel director, Charlotte Abildtrup, who are pictured with them

Their stay in the recently-refurbished hotel will be all inclusive, and Cllr Bencomo said: “Last year, we were delighted to be part of this new initiative, which was hugely beneficial to the 10 people who were given holidays.

“These people are suffering, not just from cancer but from high levels of personal stress during the palliative process.”

The hotel has increased the number of donated holidays to 12 this year, and the Councillor underlined the importance of them being able to enjoy their free-time in a qualitative way, which can also help in their recovery.

Charlotte Abildtrup, hotel director, said: “We are delighted to be able to help these people, and their families, by offering them a chance to relax and take a break from the stress, related to dealing with their cancer.

“We know that these people are fighters; that they have daily challenges to overcome. And that is why, during these summer months, we will be delighted to welcome them here and hope they enjoy all the hotel has to offer.”

Councillor Bencomo added: “Gestures such as these go to show that solidarity has no limits or frontiers.”

The Hotel Atlantic Holiday Centre offers guests large apartments, freshwater and saltwater pools, a children’s zone, tennis courts, a park, leisure zone, a gymnasium and restaurants, in addition to first-class service and personal attention.
