Traditional Christmas Day Charity Santa Swim - Armação de PêraThank you and congratulations to all those who participated in the Traditional Charity Santa Swim on Christmas Day in Armação de Pêra.

The weather was perfect, blue skies and high temperatures, however the waves were bigger that had been hoped for.  Santas started arriving from 10.30am, and at 11.00am a great number of Santas ran toward the sea for their annual dip in the ocean.

Be an Angel this ChristmasACCA’s annual Angel Programme provides an opportunity to those who want to make a difference. The charity, which focuses on the needs of under-privileged children across the Algarve, works closely with institutions, schools and community centres to ensure that the most needy get a special gift from Santa. And that is where you come in, by being an Angel.

ACCA relies on individuals and sponsoring companies to take the name of a child or a list of children, and to buy a present that will make their dreams come true. It is that simple. And that worthwhile.
