Quiz night for food bank

Rotary Club Estoi Palace International raised more than 1,300 Euros for the Algarve Food Bank during its annual charity quiz night held at the Jardim do Vale Restaurant in Vale Formosa.

More than 70 members and guests took part in the quiz night held last month, with teams answering questions posed by quiz master Shirley Dunne.

All the winning teams donated their prize money back to the club funds which enabled the Rotary Club to continue to purchase and deliver more than 500 litres of milk each month to help underprivileged families living in the Estoi area who are registered with the food bank.

Funds raised during the quiz were enough to fund the continuation of the milk programme for another six months.

A spokesman for the Rotary Club said: “We are all extremely grateful to all who helped to make the evening such a success, to those who participated and to the numerous sponsors and donors who provided raffle prizes.”
