Backpack drive for Schoolchildren - a BIG thank you!

Backpack drive for Schoolchildren - a BIG thank you!A very big thank you to everyone who supported this years Backpack Drive for children returning to school. The calls of help for backpack donations from organisations across the Algarve were answered with record support of the campaign, now in its 9th year.

A total of 229 backpacks and Gym bags were delivered to Castelo dos Sonhos in Silves, The Peta Birch Community Association, Refood Algoz and and schools in Silves and the East Algarve.

Special thanks must be made to the Congregrations at St. Lukes in Gorjões and Praia da Luz Church who collected a huge total to purchase backpacks and gym bags.
A special thank you also to Elspeth Flood in the East Algarve who co-ordinated a very generous donation.

The success of this years Backpack Drive could not have happened without the support of The Golf Shack in Alcantarilha who co-ordinated the campaign from start to finish.
