ASB 14th Anniversary Celebration BBQ with the kids and staff of the Gaivota home in Albufeira

ASB 14TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION BBQ WITH THE KIDS AND STAFF OF THE GAIVOTA HOME IN ALBUFEIRAOn June 10th, fourteen years ago I started the Algarve Senior Bikers Group. To celebrate, I led a ride from Boliquieme to the Gaivota home, who we raise money for at our events throughout the year.

ASB 14TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION BBQ WITH THE KIDS AND STAFF OF THE GAIVOTA HOME IN ALBUFEIRAWe rode via the viewpoint above the pretty village of Alte, before stopping at the nearby Fontes for a coffee, then on to Gaivota for a celebratory BBQ with the children and staff.

Having the BBQ at the home allowed those members who attended the event to meet the kids and staff of the home, and see where the money we raise is used, to benefit the kids.

As a result of this event I was able to present Dra Raquel Nunes the director of the home with €1790, including some much appreciated donations from people unable to attend.

ASB Member, Ken Blunt, also handed over another €250 from the Vale de Milho Members Club.

Dra Raquel, together with two of the home residents thanked the ASB for their continued support, and presented me with a lovely painting appropriately depicting a Gaivota (Seagull) and a motorcycle, as a token of their appreciation.

It was nice to see at least two members who were at the first meeting of the group fourteen years ago, and many new faces as well.

My thanks to all the ASB members who have supported me over the last 14 years and long may it continue.
