Solidary Christmas: Matosinhos clubs mobilize dozens of events

The month of December and the days before Christmas were marked, as is customary in Matosinhos, by the holding of a variety of sports events of a charitable nature that were supported by the City Council (CMM) and Matosinhos Sport

Futsal, sailing, horse riding and golf were just some of the other sports that made a point of remembering that if "Matosinhos is a sport friendly Municipality" the "Sport in Matosinhos" is, in turn, a friend to all without distinction, according to a solidary, inclusive, equal and fair chain.

The Futsal Solidarity Tournament took place in the Leça do Balio municipal pavilion with the Matosinhos Futsal Clube's youth teams collecting essential goods. The Christmas Tournament organized by Citygolf was also charitable, with most of the proceeds going to the Association "A Casa do Caminho". Off the coast of Leixões, the Yacht Club of Porto promoted the Christmas Regatta for the Cruisers and Platu 25 class, and nearby, the Equestrian Center of Porto and Matosinhos hosted the Show Jumping Event - Young Riders Christmas Gala.

The initiatives were attended, among others, by Luísa Salgueiro and Vasco Pinho, respectively Mayor and Councillor for Sports of the CMM, with the mayors applauding and boosting the social responsibility of local entities.
