It is not too late to participate. The charities ACCA and Castelo do Sonhos are hoping to help more than 800 needy children this year.

A big thank you to Ricky Dee of The Charity Van: Arm in Arm Messines, to C.A.S.A. - the Social Club, and the Algarve Art Society who have already made very generous donations to the appeal
