It’s back-to-school time

Every SCHOOL child needs a backpack in which to carry their books. It is at this time of year that parents begin to look for new backpacks for their children, hoping that it will last an entire year. But, for some parents, these are items that they simply cannot afford to buy. This is where you can really help and make a difference.

You would make a child in need, somewhere in the Algarve, very happy if you added an extra backpack to your trolley. The backpacks should be large enough to fit A4 sized books and folders in, and prices can start from only five euros. They will be distributed by Castelo dos Sonhos in Silves, to children throughout the Algarve, so please, put a smile on a child’s face and buy that extra backpack today.

Backpacks can be delivered to Castelo dos Sonhos or the Hotel Garbe in Armação de Pêra, between August 21 and September 5.
