Backpack appeal for children in need

Would you be willing to add a backpack to your trolley to enable a child in care to start the term with a smile? 

This is the appeal from organisers involved in the fourth backpack appeal for schoolchildren in need in the Algarve.

“One essential item for every child is a backpack to carry around all their books both to and from school and from class to class,” said organiser Celia Mossman, adding that some backpacks are as cheap as five euros.

“Please choose ones large enough for A4 sized books,” she said.

Backpacks should be delivered to Castelo dos Sonhos in Silves or the Hotel Garbe in Armação de Pêra between August 21 and September 6.
