Residents host fundraiser to thank local Bombeiros

A group of local residents has organised a fundraising event for the Lagoa and Silves firefighters (Bombeiros) to thank them for their “remarkable and vital work”.

It will take place Saturday, September 24 in the Beer Garden at O’Grady’s 12 Bar in Quinta da Figueirinha, Silves.

There will be auctions, raffles and a Portuguese barbecue meal with sangria, priced at €10 per adult and €6 per child up to 10 years old.

There will also be a variety of live music acts such as opera singer Francisco Brazão, a Jazz Ensemble from the Academia de Música de Lagos, the renowned violinist João Pedro Cunha, and Irish guitarist and vocalist Keith Williams.

Event-goers are also invited to contribute with used items to be sold at a second-hand goods stall.

The event starts at 2pm and ends at 7pm.

All profits raised will be divided equally between the Bombeiros of Lagoa and Silves.

Those wishing to donate an item or service for auction should contact the organisers.

BBQ bookings should also be made by September 22.
