19 hour charity pool marathon

Five São Brás de Alportel residents raised more than 500 euros for extra-curricular activities at their local children’s school, the O Nosso Mundo ATL, during a 19 hour pool marathon at OK Bar on March 1.

Local residents John and Emma Hogan decided to raise funds for the school because the current economic climate means that fewer parents are able to pay for their children to attend, putting its future at risk.

The next event, a charity auction, to raise funds for the school will be held on Saturday, April 4 from 5pm at Café Correia, São Romão, near São Brás.
