For the third year running, the Cap Vermell Group offers us its Solidary Salad.
A healthy and solidary dish that will be on the menus at the following restaurants: Vintage 1934 (Cap Vermell Beach Hotel), Hedonist Club (Cap Vermell Country Club) and Balearic/ Pool Bar (Park Hyatt Mallorca) throughout the whole season, which begins now in April and ends in October.
The initiative arose in 2017 with a double purpose for the promotion of: healthy and balanced eating habits along with customers' solidarity to benefit those most in need.
This solidarity activity is part of the series of actions carried out by the Cap Vermell Group all-year-round in line with its firm corporate social responsibility policy. Solidarity is one of the hallmarks and cornerstones of this business group headquartered in Canyamel.
The beneficiary is Aspanob, (Association of Parents of Children with Cancer in the Balearics), which was created in 1987 with the clear objective to improve the quality of life of all the children on the Balearic Islands, aged 0-18 years, suffering from this disease. With a professional track record of more than three decades, the organisation's members have significantly increased, as well as its activities and programmes, although the basis of its principles remains the same: contribute to making life easier for these children suffering from cancer, at health, psychological, social, educational and healthcare levels, as well as for their families.
It therefore provides them with all the resources, necessary information, transport and accommodation if they have to travel between the islands, and educational support during treatment and recovery. They also seek the support of society and institutions in order to be able to continue working in this way. Last year the Cap Vermell Group sold 1286 plates of this delicious dish, raising a total sum of 7716 euros which were donated to Abaimar, (Balearic Association of Children with Rare Diseases).
This association was founded in 2009 with the clear mission of raising awareness about the existence of unknown, unusual and minority diseases affecting children; contributing to the quality and life expectancy of children affected by these ailments; helping and offering advisory services to parents; and seeking the media and institutional support necessary to be able to progress in scientific research and the development of effective medical treatments.
In 2017, the first year of the initiative, the action was an immediate success, and at the end of the season a total number of 1184 salads had been sold, raising 7104 euros for Projecte Home Balears. The work of this non-profit organisation, one of the most active and long-standing ones on the Balearic Islands, focuses on the prevention and treatment of drug addiction, combating social exclusion and promoting projects that enable the incorporation of persons in this situation.Cap Vermell
