Algarve buddies helping heroes

Around 50 people took part in a fundraising event for the British charity Help 4 Heroes (H4H) with €700 being raised for the charity which helps wounded soldiers.

A meal and fund raising raffle was held at the Cockerel Country Kitchen in Albufeira on March 9 and organised by members of Carole’s Buddies, a local group of likeminded friends.

Part of the fundraising on the evening included a target of €100 to be put towards paying for a diving experience in the Algarve for three wounded soldiers from the Ghurkha Regiment. This target was met and now all three men will be able to have expert training in the region.

Organisers would like to thank all the businesses that donated prizes for the night including the Holiday Inn Algarve, Thomas Green’s and Total Harmony and the staff at The Cockerel.

The event will be repeated again in November with sponsorship from Eurofinesco.
