Giving back

Local footballers from the Portimonense team were due to be the guests of honour at a meal provided by Le Meridien Penina for members of the Portimão community.

More than 80 people from the Nossa Senhora do Amparo social centre in Portimão, including elderly members, homeless people and those recovering from drug and alcohol addictions, were to be the guests at the special lunch yesterday (Thursday) served by Le Meridien staff.

Executive chef Bernard Lussiana and his team were expected to prepare a buffet lunch for the community centre members as a way for Le Meridien to give back to the community.
