Proud of generous community

Dear Editor,

On September 30, I held a coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan in the UK and also the Liga Portuguesa Contra O Cancro in Portugal.

Kindly Restaurant Fonte de Pedra in Alcalar gave free use of their function room. I was just wanting to thank all who baked, helped and most particularly donated. We have reached €520 so far. It served to highlight, regardless of all the bad news we seem to hear all the time, that people are generous and really do dig deep for such a good cause. Thank you to the community – makes me proud.
