Ribbon success

A ‘human ribbon’ in aid of cancer awareness was formed by 390 people donning pink T-shirts on Praia da Rocha on August 11.

Organised by the Algarve Oncology Association (AOA), the third ‘human ribbon’ event aimed to inform people about the risks of breast and skin cancer as well as encourage physical exercise as a way of keeping the disease at bay.

As a result of the event, around €1,700 was raised towards the construction of a residential care home, Casa Flor das Dunas, for cancer patients receiving treatment at the Algarve Radiotherapy Unit from the AOA.
