APAA, Cake Bake and The Queen!

Jackie Billings hosting Posh Tea Street Party on Sunday, June 5, Portimão

The British are a proud nation. They have a monarchy, which will be achieving a Royal Platinum Jubilee, with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II marking 70 years of service. It is for this reason that APAA (Association for Protection of Animals Algarve) is presenting a Posh Tea Street Party, which will be hosted by stalwart treasurer and long-term member Jackie Billings. Her famous biscuits are legendary – a sweet taste on the lips, centimetres on the hips. And are already sold-out! But here comes Anita Wight, ‘Pop-Up Queen’, to the rescue! Anita will be selling cakes, biscuits, savouries and pastries on Sunday, June 5 from 2pm. She is delighted to bring her ‘Pop-Up’ talents to foodies. No need to book, just ‘Pop-In’ to buy, or take a bake!

APAA is not short of animal lovers. Horsey people, doggy devotees and the cat crowd! In between are rabbits, guinea pigs, budgies and a lot more. The essence of APAA? The furtherance of respect by humans for our animal kingdom. To be kind, treat them with loyalty and love. Amongst APAA membership are businesses dealing with the beneficial side of our darling pets. If they are in need of professional help or you have a concern about an animal and need a chat, we have people who are able to help. Our helping hands!
