Help for Castelo

A Christmas fair in aid of charity Castelo de Sonhos is taking place at the old cine-theatre in Silves on December 11 from 10.30am to 3pm.

There will be stalls selling paintings, crackers, cards, calendars and ideas for Christmas gifts.

Smoked products, cheeses, chutneys and preserves will also be available for sale and orders for Christmas.

All profits will be donated to Castelo de Sonhos, which helps underprivileged people in the Silves area.

Organisers said: “At the moment, the Castelo is struggling to provide nappies (any size) to the many babies of families who are registered with the charity.”

If you can help with donations of nappies, please deliver them to the Castelo de Sonhos shop in Silves. Please call 968 774 909 or 968 774 904.
