Rotarians support cerebral palsy association

Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) presented the Associação Portuguesa de Paralisia Cerebral (AAPC), the Portuguese cerebral palsy association in Faro, with two chair hoists to help move people who, for safety reasons, cannot be lifted directly by the staff into and out of wheelchairs or to take advantage of therapeutic facilities, on July 1.

The funds were raised through weekly donations by members and their guests, together with a donation by Restaurant Couleur France, in Almancil, the AIRC meeting place. 

Pictured from left are the President of AIRC Peter Hinze, Sra Graciete Maria Pontes de Campo, Technical Director of AAPC, and AIRC Chairman of Community Services, Volker Biebesheimer.

AIRC meetings are held every Wednesday at 1pm.
