Charity dinner to raise money for two-year-old cancer patient

A charity dinner to raise money for two-year-old Maria Flor, who has to travel regularly to Coimbra to receive treatment for a cancerous tumour behind her eye, will be held at Horta Grill in Montes de Alvor, Portimão on Thursday, July 4.

Maria’s parents are struggling with the costs of the treatment and transportation, and the local community has banded together to help out.

Local resident Barrington Thomas, one of the organisers of the event, is hoping that the dinner will be attended by “as many people as possible” in a bid to make the family’s life “just a little bit easier”.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the family who lives in Montes de Alvor.

The dinner costs €25 and includes a starter, main course, dessert, coffee, wine and beer. There will also be live music, raffles and auctions in a bid to raise as much money as possible for Maria.

The event will begin at 7pm. Horta Grill is located in Montes de Alvor on Estrada Ilídio Lourenço Pedregais. To book your place, contact Barrington or Horta Grill.
