Help the homeless this Christmas - adopt a cuddly toy

Help the homeless this Christmas – adopt a cuddly toy

Caroline Langston from The Algarve Emporium Charity is organising Christmas Care Packages for approximately 50 homeless people in the Albufeira area and, in order to raise funds, she has set up the “Cuddly Toy Adoption Campaign”.

There are a number of cuddly toys (pre-loved and new) to choose from. Each one has been given a name to suit his or her character and comes complete with adoption certificate. Prices range from €3 to €8.

The Algarve Emporium Charity will be at the Guia Fair in Guia on November 30 and at the Almadena Christmas Fayre near Praia da Luz on December 1 with the toys that are available for adoption. Go along and choose yours.

Toys can also be adopted online at

All proceeds from the “Cuddly Toy Adoption Campaign” will go towards the Homeless Christmas Care Packages.

These packages consist of essential items that will be put into a cloth bag, then wrapped with Christmas paper, to be delivered to the homeless people in Albufeira. Items include toiletries and clothing (socks, scarves, gloves, wholly hats). All are invited to donate towards this cause. Donations can be delivered at several collection points.
