Madrugada Anniversary Coffee Morning - Feb 24th

Madrugada Coffee MorningMadrugada hopes that as many of you as possible will come along to our 9th anniversary coffee morning from 10:30 till 13:00 on Saturday 24 February at our Support Centre in Rua Direita 100a in Luz.

In the past Madrugada’s coffee mornings have coincided with Macmillan’s “World Biggest Coffee Morning” but we found this led to some confusion. Many believed that some of the funds raised for Macmillan’s wonderful work in the UK was passed by them to Madrugada to help with our work here. But this was not so and nor would we have expected them to do so. So we felt it would be much more appropriate for us to hold our own anniversary coffee morning to raise funds solely for Madrugada. 

Macmillan has made giant advances since its foundation in 1911 and nowadays provides invaluable care and support to millions of cancer sufferers and their families exclusively in the United Kingdom. Madrugada benefited incalculably from its professional association with Macmillan. 

We at Madrugada are working in our own small way to provide specialised end of life care and support for anyone in west Algarve who is facing a life limiting illness Although founded only 9 years ago we feel we have made tremendous strides and to date over 100 patients have benefited from Madrugada’s `hospice at home’ service: a unique offering in Portugal.

It is entirely due to the public through its generosity, donations and support of Madrugada’s charity shops, events, and the Madrugada Support Centre in Luz, that Madrugada is able to provide its end-of-life services free-of-charge. Nor could we do so without the invaluable contribution of our wonderful volunteers. But we always have room for more!
On the other hand if you are not interested in working in one of our charity shops but feel you would like to help as a fund raiser we would also love to hear from you at the Madrugada Office on 282 761 375.
