Rotary gift for community centre

Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) has purchased an industrial tumble dryer and presented it to the Associação Esperança e Paz, which runs a small but important community centre in Loulé.

The centre, which is staffed on a voluntary basis, is open every day from 9am until 6pm and helps elderly people who have limited or no facilities of their own.

The staff provide a service which includes physiotherapy, bathroom facilities and cooked lunches.

The dryer complements the laundry facilities already available, making it possible not only to bring their washing to the centre but also to dry it there.

AIRC have previously supported this association with clothing and shoes, some collected in conjunction with the Apolónia Supermarket.
