Helping the needy this winter

The St. Patrick’s Society of the Algarve has made a donation of 50 blankets to the Silves-based charity Castelo de Sonhos.

The Society’s chairman, Jim Brownlow and committee member, Julie Fortune presented the gift to the charity’s President, Dra. Liliana Rodrigues.

Most of the funding for this gift was raised by the generosity of the people who participated in the Society’s popular monthly walks.

The next Society walk will be on Saturday, December 23. Any prospective walker, who has spare items of bedding at home is encouraged to bring them or, if not, an extra donation to buy new bedding would be greatly appreciated in this pre-Christmas period.
