Variety show success

More than €3,000 was raised during the fourth annual ‘Grand Night of Variety’ in Lagoa on December 5 in support of the local voluntary fire fighters.

Organiser Jenny Grainer told the Algarve Resident: “I was really pleased with the turn out and the amount of money that we raised, especially during these times of austerity and because of the terrible weather we had on the night.”

She added: “The night went very well with the only major problem being that one of the Tango dancers had injured himself on black ice before arriving for the performance and was only able to do one dance. However, this was better than having to pull out entirely.”
