New east Algarve group for RBL

The inaugural lunch of the Royal British Legion Portugal Algarve East Group was held at the Quinta da Fonte do Bispo, in Sta. Catarina, Tavira on July 29.

After a week’s postponement due to the fires raging in the east, David and Elizabeth Atkinson held their first group lunch, which was well attended and enjoyed by all.

The guests, including British Consul Clive Jewell, enjoyed a three course lunch provided by Richard and Gillian Bassett, the owners of the venue.  

The lunch was followed by the presentation of a cheque to the RBL for €5,399.60, which was raised during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee events held across the Algarve in conjunction with the Algarve Resident. Presenting the cheque was Sheena Rawcliffe, Associate Director of the Algarve Resident.

RBL Chairman Des Briggs BEM expressed his appreciation and thanks to all the volunteers who took part.  

The next Algarve East group lunch will be held at Quinta Fonte do Bispo on September 2 at 1pm.
