Buffet dinner and quiz in aid of Algarve charities

Local charity Helping Hands in The Algarve held a fundraising event on Tuesday, June 11, combining a buffet dinner and quiz at the Maharaja Patiala Indian Restaurant in São Brás de Alportel.

The buffet dinner featured a variety of starters, a range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian main dishes and a dessert, with all the usual Indian side dishes and drinks included.

Tonie Lawton provided a fun-packed quiz, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Nearly €400 was raised on the night. All proceeds will go towards the work of Helping Hands to support the Bombeiros, a children’s home in Loulé, food donations to Casa do Povo in Estoi, support for children and adults with visual difficulties (by providing glasses) and riding lessons for young adults with cerebral palsy.

The next fundraising event will be a fun quiz night on Tuesday, July 2, at the old Freguesia office on Rua Dr Silva Nobre, opposite the east end of the Municipal Market in São Brás de Alportel, at 7.45pm. All are welcome.
