Prison appeal

A Silves-based charity helping underprivileged people in the Algarve needs a sewing machine to be able to develop a project at the local jail.

Castelo de Sonhos is developing a sewing class for prisoners at Silves jail but needs equipment.

Volunteer Celia Mossman said: “We desperately need a sewing machine which is in good working order. Sadly, the one we have been using is now beyond repair.”

If you have a sewing machine you would like to donate towards this project, please contact Celia on 282 332 665.
