After “a very difficult year”, the ALL women’s lunch group has decided to donate €1,000 to Gaivota, the Albufeira organisation that looks after young people who are at risk or in danger, for whom a measure of protection and residential care is important.
The organisation caters for children aged 12 to 18 or potentially up to 21 in exceptional cases.
ALL is a group of women who meet once a month for lunches in local restaurants, to eat, chat and raise money for charity.
After discussion with the technical director Dr Cláudia Loios, ALL bought 31 gift vouchers of €25 each, which can be given to the children for Christmas, and also donated €225 for them to go to Lagos Zoo as a pre-Christmas treat.

The ALL ladies decided to make their donation to Gaivota this year because they “appreciate the good work they do for this age-group of children”.
