Antarte, a Portuguese furniture and decoration brand, remains committed to supporting social responsibility initiatives, and last November it once again joined noble causes such as the Solidarity Christmas Fair. This event is organized every year by the Volunteers of the Regional Centre of the Portuguese League Against Cancer, responsible for contacting companies and making them aware of the need to donate goods and products, with the participation of dozens of volunteers.
The 'Little Fair', held between November 21st and December 1st of 2022, at the Palliative Care Unit of the Porto IPO, was open to all people who wanted to buy products at affordable prices, namely: clothing and footwear, home textiles, toys, decoration articles, furniture, antiques, among others.
Guilhermina Azevedo, Solidary Fair organizer, highlighted 'the importance of Antarte's offer with current items that not only embellished our fair but also made an important contribution to generating revenue to help cancer patients and families.
Antarte has a long history of supporting causes of solidarity and social responsibility and immediately supported this request of the Volunteering Regional Centre of the Portuguese League Against Cancer, corresponding with a donation of over 55 thousand euros in products.
Throughout almost 25 years of existence, Antarte has made social responsibility one of the main commitments of its mission, supporting needy families and institutions supporting disadvantaged children. On its own initiative, it has also developed projects such as furnishing and decorating some of the spaces of the Maternal and Child Centre of the North, part of Santo António Hospital in Porto, to make them more welcoming and humanized.
For Mário Rocha, Antarte CEO, 'it makes us aware that we can make a difference for those who need it most when society is well mobilized. It doesn't matter where you do the right thing as long as you do it, and that makes me proud.'
