Fishermen friends of charity

Fishermen in Vila Real de Santo António have donated 100kg of fish to local charitable institutions.

For the second year running, the Santo António de Arenilha Fishermen’s Association organised a collective fishing expedition in aid of Santa Casa de Misericórdia and Mão Amiga, institutions that provide meals to needy people in the council.

A spokesman for the association said: “We will continue organising these charity fishing expeditions as we know the donated fish provides essential food for poor families.”
