Join our Cat Charity Walk on Saturday 2nd December at 10am, to help raise funds for the Mr No Ears Cat Haven's external project, "Silves Street Cats".
Cheryl Smith at Figs on The Funcho is organizing a fundraising walk to support the external project "Silves Street Cats" by Mr. No Ears Cat Haven's charity. The funds raised will contribute to facilitating adoptions and providing care for stray cats that cannot be re-homed due to age and disability. If you're interested in participating in this cat charity walking event, please secure your spot.
The charity project, Mr. No Ears Cat Haven, derived its name from a white cat in Albufeira who underwent ear removal surgery due to cancer. Funding for this operation was made possible through contributions from sponsors globally, including those here in Portugal.
The organization operates in a manner similar to a hospice, specializing in caring for numerous cats dealing with severe illnesses and injuries. They offer love, creating a secure and joyful environment for these feline companions.
Cheryl, will be leading the walk along the picturesque path beside the Funcho River. We'll traverse through pine and cork forests, eventually reaching the hilltop church. From this vantage point, you'll enjoy sweeping views of the rural Algarve countryside, known for its cattle farming and hunting grounds. Along the way, we might share the route with a shepherd and his flock of sheep, providing a unique encounter.
Covering approximately 6km in about 1 hour, this walk is generally moderate, with the exception of a 180-meter incline leading to the church. You have the option to skip this part and wait for the group's return. Additionally, there's a slope on your way back, just before reaching the entrance to the road leading to our destination, Figs on the Funcho.

Refreshments, including coffee/tea and cake, will be provided following the walk. It's a chance to forge new friendships and connections in person. We also appreciate any contributions of cake donations.
