TAP helps "ASASTAP" with a charity auction

Wings of old planes gain new life in an exclusive item up for auction.

TAP starts this Tuesday, 3 December, a new charity auction that will benefit the elderly residents of the ASASTAP Complex - TAP Staff Solidarity and Social Support Association. The item to be auctioned is, for the first time ever, a single carbon fibre table exclusively made of material from the Airline's aircraft.

The table has been built by the Airline's maintenance and engineering technicians. It is made from the components of an "elevator", also known as the rear wing, of medium-haul aircraft no longer operated by the Airline.   
The exclusive table can be purchased on the eSolidar online fundraising platform, at www.bit.ly/mesafeitapelaTAP.

The revenue goes to the elderly residents of the ASASTAP Social Complex to purchase an upright piano, to be used in a musical project that promotes social interaction and reduces isolation. Music therapy has been successfully used for several years as rehabilitation in programmes with the elderly, especially people living in institutions, providing sensory stimulation, increasing the quality of life and helping to prevent physical and mental deterioration.
The auction is open until 10 December. It is one of the TAP initiatives associated with Giving Tuesday, the world's largest solidarity movement that is commemorated on the first Tuesday after Black Friday.
