THE EAST Algarve walking group celebrates its third anniversary next week.
Together with the Madhatters Riverside Bar in Tavira, they have recently helped to raise 300 euros for the ACCA Children’s Charity Angel Appeal to provide Christmas presents for orphanages and children’s homes throughout the Algarve.
The Striders, those who enjoy an eight to 12 kilometres walk, will be ‘On the trail of the Algarvean goat’ on Tuesday, December 16, while the Amblers, a more leisurely five to eight kilometres, will be exploring the tracks around the Bernardinheiro and Santiago district of Tavira on Friday, December 19 followed by a Christmas lunch.
“The group welcomes everyone and is a friendly mix of people who enjoy exploring the coastline, hills and hinterland of the East Algarve which is so rich in flora, fauna, birds and wildlife,” say the organisers.
Each walk costs 10 euros and includes lunch at a local restaurant.
