Healthy Living Workshop raises funds for animals

In order to raise much-needed funds, the Association for the Protection of Animals in the Algarve (APAA) tried something completely different and recently held a Healthy Living Workshop at Vila Rosa resort in Praia da Rocha to raise awareness of the importance of nutrition and human body movement.

The workshop was held in conjunction with three health professionals – Bo de la Haye, a visiting movement coach/personal trainer from The Netherlands, Joel Fernandes, an independent physiotherapist/personal trainer, and Marco Pereira, nutritionist with Portimonense Football Club.

The three professionals gave “interesting and fun presentations”, and afterwards the 30 participants enjoyed a healthy and nutritious lunch prepared by APAA volunteers.

The event raised €570 and APAA is already planning another workshop later in the year.
