Special day for underprivileged children

Underprivileged children in the Portimão council area were invited aboard the Portuguese boat that competed in the Audi MedCup event off the city’s coast.

The Bom Samaritano children’s home in Alvor was delighted with the chance to take the children to meet the Bigamist 7 crew, the only Portuguese team entering the sailing event, on August 18.

Sara, 10, from the home, said: “I wouldn’t mind going on a sailing trip aboard this beautiful boat as I love the sea.”

Children from Catraia and Casa de Nª Sª da Conceição also went on board the Bigamist 7 on August 19 and 20 respectively. The Audi MedCup event ended on August 23.
