Shackleton success helps needy children

An event at the Portimão Museum earlier this month to reveal amazing official images of the Imperial Trans-Antartic Expedition, led by Sir Ernest Shackleton, has been hailed a success by sponsors, Sovereign Consultoria Lda (Lagoa). On February 8, almost 100 years after the expedition, 135 people were able to relive those events, courtesy of a presentation by Geoff Selley FRGS, who is the present custodian of the original photographic images. Proceeds from the event helped raise €730 for the Alvor Bom Samaritano Children’s Home and Sovereign has raised the amount to €1,000.
