Community fund raising

Four local residents teamed up and had some fun in the name of charity, raising 350 euros for two regional children’s homes.

Lynn Love, Martin Binks, Carole Good-Dixon and Derrick Watts teamed up in February to organise two quiz nights at the Hotel Garbe in Armação de Pêra and a comedy production at the Village Inn in Mexilhoeira da Carregação, the first Carole’s Buddies event, which raised the money for the Pirilampos and Gaivota children’s homes in Albufeira.

Lynn and Martin’s April fundraising events will be in aid of the Silves-based charity Castelo de Sonhos, with an Easter egg hunt around Armação de Pêra followed by an Easter bonnet competition in the Hotel Garbe on Sunday, April 4.

This will be followed by a quiz night at the Hotel Garbe on April 5. For more information about these events, please telephone Lynn on 919 266 770.
