The Algarve Senior Bikers held their annual charity lunch on Friday, December 14, returning to the popular Fatacil restaurant for the ninth time since the group was formed.
The highlight was that the proceeds from the lunch and donations made at ASB events throughout the year, totaling around €1,100, were delivered by a delegation of riders led by David Shirley to the Gaivota home for teenagers in Albufeira.
ASB member Martin Holloway also joined the group to hand over another €660 he had raised from quiz nights at the Cocktail Garden bar in Monte Carvoeiro.
A draw for a festive hamper was made by Sandra Rodrigues, one of two guests from the staff of the Gaivota home. She managed to pick her own ticket but promised to share the goodies with the children in the home.
Sandra was accompanied by the home’s psychologist Margarida Rodrigues who gave a short talk about recent developments and changes at the home and thanked the ASB for their ongoing support.
The group will be meeting this month to plan the programme for 2019.
