Florentinta Charity Fashion Show Raises €2,000

Florentinta Charity Fashion ShowOn Saturday, 29th September, the Florentinta Charity Fashion Show took place at Bijou Restaurant in Almancil. Nearly 100 people attended to watch our 10 glamourous models strut their stuff and showcase a selection of clothes available from Florentinta.
€2,000 was raised and will benefit two charities, Rotary Club Estoi Palace International and the Goldra Dog Sanctuary.

Jan Henderson and her dedicated team of volunteers run the Goldra Dog Sanctuary on a shoestring, totally dependent on donations. They currently have 83 dogs and various puppies in their care.

RC Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) last year helped with the purchase of a caravan unit for the Algarve Oncology Association nicknamed “pinky” which was then fully equipped with state of the art breast screening equipment and is now providing mobile screening throughout the Algarve. This year the Club joined forces with Wolf Valley Charity again and purchased a van for the Algarve Oncology Association (AOA) and this mobile unit will be equipped with lung and skin cancer testing machines. RCEPI will be helping to purchase the skin cancer equipment for the AOA. We are very grateful to everyone who attended or donated to the causes and to our sponsors Renova Construct, www.renovaconstruct.com and Cardoso Drain Cleaning Company 917 207 657.

The Home Centre is new to Almancil and is an Aladdin’s Cave of treasures waiting to be found. It’s a new venture for Florentinta, together with the existing well-established Crown Paint Centre.

Florentinta have established themselves over the last 18 months as the place for Frenchic Chalk Paint. Now added to the offer are other paint products to transform your existing furniture, Kylie Minogue Bedding, Jonny Javelin Greetings Cards, new and upcycled furniture and fantastic ladies fashions.

Gail, who owns the long-established company of Florentyna Dawn in the UK has over 30 years’ experience in the Fashion and Design Industry has now expanding the Portuguese side of the business to incorporate Ladieswear, this is due to numerous client requests to stock brands that are different in style from any others available in Portugal. Gail is renowned for a special flair for colour and style which is proving popular for transforming old and new Portuguese furniture.

If you don’t want to paint your own furniture, just commission Florentinta to do the work for you, either at their showroom or in your own home. In effect, why not upcycle your own furniture instead of disposing of it.

Florentinta also run regular workshops at The Home Centre teaching customers to transform their own furniture using the fabulous range of Frenchic Products.
