Red Nose Day competition!

It’s that time of year again for all of us to join together and do something funny for money!

This year, the Algarve Resident is inviting its readers to take part in a Red Nose Day fundraising competition.

To take part, simply send in a creative caption for the photograph on the right, which was kindly supplied by Algarve Images, along with a 10 euro donation to the UK’s Comic Relief charity, which organises Red Nose Day.

For every caption that we receive, we will donate 50 cents to Comic Relief, which helps a variety of charitable causes.

To send in your caption, simply email us at [email protected] or fax 282 342 939 and include your name, address and telephone number. Closing date for receiving captions is Tuesday, March 10, noon. Read the best captions in next week’s edition of the Algarve Resident!

If you’ve planned to do something funny for money this year, the Algarve Resident would love to hear from you.

Send us your pictures and let us know what you got up to as well as how much money you raised.

Simply email the address above or call 282 342 936 and ask to speak to Daisy or Eloise.
