Rafaela Santos (Holiday Inn Algarve) Ricardo Pinto, Lidia Guia (Holiday Inn Algarve) and Ricardo XufreThe 2017/18 the annual charity event to swim or paddle in the Atlantic Ocean has, this year, so far raised over 1331 Euros for children in care. Many congratulations and thanks to all those who participated. Special thanks must go to the campers from Camping Park Armação de Pêra and the bridge players from Arena Bridge who made additional donations.

The weather was perfect for both of the events, one on Christmas day, and the second on New Year's day. Although on New Years Day the waves were at some points very high!!!!

The funds raised were presented to Ricardo Pinto, President of the Junta de Fregusia of Armação de Pêra and Ricardo Xufre da Casa de Acolhimento A Gaivota Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Albufeira, and will be divided between A Gaivota, Santa Casa in Albufeira and Espaço Amigos in Armação de Pêra.
