AIRC golf competition raises €5,700

Almancil International Rotary Club’s first ever golf competition raised a total of €5,700 for local charities which will include ‘Centro de Dia Alzheimer e Parkinson’ in Vila Sol. The centre will eventually provide day care facilities for up to 20 people with special needs.

The event, organised by AIRC member John Slatter, was generously sponsored by BiG investment bank, Conrad Algarve, Dom Pedro Golf and Golfers Paradise.

AIRC members and guests attended a celebration dinner at the Old Course Club house in the evening where the winners of the event (Team Thorne) were each presented with an Old Course Commemorative tankard.

“I’m so pleased that despite the weather all those who promised to turn up came and made this a very special day. I’m delighted we raised so much for our local charities” said John Slatter, adding that he is already making plans for a similar event next year.
