Bombeiros Christmas cards selling fast

Three fundraising Christmas cards, featuring designs by our readers, are still on sale at the Algarve Resident offices but are quickly running out!

The designs are by Paula Watt, Hillary Cunningham and Sara Willington who were winners of a competition run in the Algarve Resident in July.

“We’ve had people coming into our office to buy the cards in the hundreds! The response to the Bombeiros appeal has been fantastic and made us realise how much people care about the work carried out by the local firefighters,” says Algarve Resident Editor Inês Lopes.

With more than 30 years of service to the community and around 70 per cent of their workforce being volunteers, Lagoa Bombeiros are a very worthy cause and one we should all support.

They are always in need of funds to purchase vital equipment that not only helps to protect firefighters but also saves lives.

The Christmas cards are available from our offices at Rua Visconde de Lagoa, No. 2 e 3. 8400-329, Lagoa, Porches Pottery and Sesmarias Supermarket, near Lagoa.
