Rotary Club raises funds for summer camp

Almancil International Rotary Club has raised funds to enable two Portuguese teenagers to attend summer camp.

Patrícia Modesto and Mário Libanio will stay at the camp in the UK for two weeks and live with volunteer Rotary families.

The idea for the summer camp is for the teenagers to learn how to foster friendships through sport and social events. They will also have the opportunity to visit the Isle of Man.

The camp is organised by two Rotary clubs in the Manchester area, RC Bolton Daybreak and RC West Houghton.

AIRC raised the funds for the project through commission given by a local artist on the sale of his painting and a donation from an AIRC member.
