The continued support of the charity golf tournament is, according to Luis Villas Boas, an example of the enduring relationship between the British people and the home, a relationship that has been present for more than two decades.
“The first ever child to be adopted from the home is now a British citizen and also my god child,” said Luis Villas Boas. “Twenty-five years ago, this child was adopted by British parents and is now living in London and shows that we have had links with the British community for many years now.
“Over the years we have had a lot of support from British residents living in the Algarve and I urge everyone to come down to the home and see the children and the work we do. Our doors are always open and we are happy to welcome volunteers and visitors.
He added: “We have an open policy of letting anyone who wants to know about how we run the home access all our accounts, so you can see where money is being spent and what on, and are happy to receive people at anytime as we are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
