Post-Christmas treats for Almancil parishioners

The Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) has recently presented parishioners associated with the Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Fátima de Almancil with some post-Christmas festive treats.

Thanks to the generosity of local charities, many children and elderly supported by the AIRC received small gifts they generally wouldn’t have due to various circumstances.

Instead of a celebration Christmas dinner, Club members thought it more appropriate to use the last dinner meeting of 2019 to raise funds to purchase various items for the parishioners.

The dinner was held at the Conrad Hotel in Quinta do Lago with entertainment provided free of charge by dance teacher Larisa Shumskaya and her dance troupe, Julie Hammond and Band on the Run.

Pre-dinner entertainment was supplied by none other than Wesley Seme (click here) who reached the semi-final of The Voice Portugal singing some opera favourites. A total of €1,840 was raised enabling the club to purchase more than 70 parcels.
