Top professional

Luís Villas-Boas, who runs the Refúgio Aboim Ascensão children’s home in Faro, has been named ‘Professional of the Year 2018-2019’ by the Faro Rotary Club.

Following his military career, Villas Boas has spent 35 years of his life volunteering to help children in need.

“He was contacted many times to accept big political roles, but he traded it all for the children,” the rotary club said.

The accolade was awarded on January 15 at the Faz Gostos restaurant in Faro.
