 Pai Natal and his helper Mrs KlausEstoi Palace International Rotary Club (RCEPI) were delighted to welcome Pai Natal and his helper Mrs Klaus to the monthly food distribution at Estoi Casa do Povo to those familes registered with the Faro Food Bank.

Since 2009 RCEPI has supplied around 450 litres of long life milk per month to supplement the food packs from the Food Bank. 

The kids enjoying the Christmas PartyTo date the Club has given over 40000 litres of milk at a cost of around 18.000 euros. The Club’s Quiz Nights help to fund this. On Thursday the 15th of December at the last distribution of the year Pai Natal and his helper came along to present the children with gifts donated by the Club.

On Saturday the 17th, RCEPI again supported the Casa do Povo annual Christmas party for the underprivileged children in the community. 62 children attended and the Club provided food and drinks for them together with face painting which they enjoyed very much. The Casa do Povo had arranged folkloric and karate displays and the highlight of the day was when Pai Natal and Mrs. Klaus returned to distribute gold chocolate coins supplied by RCEPI to the children together with a gift arranged by the Casa do Povo administration.

A good time was had by all and RCEPI were delighted to be able to help the local community in this as they have for the last 8 years.
