Stephanotis jasminoides is another sometimes tricky-to-establish plant; it was a joy to see these abundant flowers in the first summer after planting.jpg

Human ribbon

For the third year running, the Algarve Oncology Association (AOA) is organising a Solidarity Human Ribbon tomorrow (Saturday) in Praia da Rocha.

From 10am, participants will form a pink ribbon right on the beach to help raise awareness of breast and skin cancer, followed by a fitness class at 11am.

Hoping to bring together 1,000 people, the event aims to raise funds to build the Casa Flor das Dunas in Faro, a residential home for cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy.

Registration costs €2 and can be made until August 10 at the municipal market in Portimão, Continente shopping centre, Barlavento hospital and the Onda Solta stand in Praia da Rocha.

For more information, please call the AOA on 289 807 531.
