MEMBERS OF social club, CASA, got together and raised over 1,000 euros towards the purchase of winter protective clothing, urgently needed for the Silves Bombeiros.
Commandant António Nunes of Silves Bombeiros assessed the immediate priority as being balaclavas, polo shirts and trousers. CASA chairman, Norman Thompson, and treasurer, Frantz Pecheur, met with António Nunes to hand over the cheque and ended up taking a tour around the command centre. The Commandant thanked CASA members for their generous support.
CASA has over 300 members, who meet socially every month, and organises an annual trip in the Iberian Peninsula. For details of their next event in Albufeira on March 18 or membership information, contact Frantz Peucher on 282 312 819.
