St George’s Day lunch on the west coast

West coast animal charity AEZA is hosting a St George’s Day fundraiser on Sunday, April 23 – the date set aside each year to celebrate England’s patron saint – at Restaurante Vale da Telha, near Aljezur, from 2pm. All are welcome and you don’t have to be English.

Wendy Smith, one of the organisers, says: “Christina (Pearl C) and guitarist/singer Amadeu will be singing live for us after the meal, which is a real treat! We have some excellent raffle prizes on offer too.”

Tickets cost €16.50 and the meal consist of four courses, mixed starters followed by a taster plate with the mandatory roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes, a main course of either chicken, salmon or a vegetable stir fry vegetarian option, followed by dessert.

Anyone wishing to book tickets should contact Wendy on 282 997 273, 964 119 837, Sheila on 969 772 120, or Lynda on 915 968 260. Alternatively, email [email protected]
