Charity show to raise funds for Tavira care centre

A charity concert is to be performed by the Algarve Orchestra at Faro’s municipal theatre Teatro das Figuras tomorrow (Saturday) to raise funds and awareness for the construction of a care centre in Tavira.

The project to build the care centre for sufferers of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s in the Algarve is being promoted by an association for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s sufferers, which has the patronage of the First Lady of Portugal, Maria Cavaco Silva.

Tavira Câmara has already offered a piece of land in Sítio da Picota for the project.

The concert is due to start at 9.30pm and will include works by Mozart and Beethoven.

Tickets cost 10 euros each and can be bought from Teatro das Figuras or reserved by calling 281 323 131/ 964 636 947.
