Madrugada, the charitable association, which assists those with life limiting illnesses and their families, is just one of the charities which Silves Rotary Club supports.

Madgrugada has a whole raft of events planned for September, so watch this space for further details.

Margarida Trindade, the director of UNIR (the association supporting those who suffer with mental disadvantages) was present at the Garden Party and spoke of the work that UNIR carries out. She told of the plans for the new facility in Portimão and Alan Winn, President of Silves Rotary Club encouraged all to support the endeavours of UNIR, which needs all the assistance it can get, as so little is available from government.
