Twenty-two disadvantaged families on the Algarve’s west coast will be having (or, ‘had’, if using after Christmas) a far happier Christmas than they might otherwise have expected.
For the last 9 years Rotary Club Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) has given a Portuguese / English and English / Portuguese dictionary to each of the 5th year students of the School “Poeta Emiliano da Costa" in Estoi.
Carol Harvey of Portugal Slippers has very kindly donated a large number of Traditional Portuguese Slippers to raise funds for Castelos de Sonhos, to buy food for families in need this Christmas.
Algarve west coast community association, Amovate, has stepped up its charity work to bring aid to people in the area suffering through the pandemic.
Long Way Across - a non stop trek across the breadth of Portugal in support of the Wildlife Ranger Challenge
In a little under a month, Charlie Perring is setting off on Long Way Across, a 301 kms non-stop trek (east to west) of the Algarve, to raise funds for the Wildlife Ranger Challenge - an initiative created by TUSK to support the men and women rangers who dedicate their lives patrolling the national parks and game reserves of Africa, to protect the precious wildlife that remains there.
A round of applause... In August four brave ladies, Christine Beckwith, Carol Arnold, Lisa Jones and Val Jones decided they would attempt a “virtual” English Channel swim to raise much needed funds for our local StreetLife Sterilisation Programme based in the East Algarve.
Covid-19 has of course had an effect on APAA. We were unable to open our shops at all for ten weeks and then for only 2-3 days each week as some of our more vulnerable volunteers were, understandably, reluctant to expose themselves to possible infection. This has resulted in a big dent in our income. CLICK HERE to read the newsletter.
