ACCA Back to school programmeWe need your help! Children’s charity ACCA has started its annual drive to ensure that youngsters across the Algarve can start the new school year with confidence… and with the basic essentials to help them achieve. Your help is needed.
Although the government here does provide text books for the poorest, it does not supply children with the simple, everyday materials that are vital to support the learning process.
Every year, ACCA increases its back-to-school programme in an attempt to help as many kids as possible – in 2017 the charity gave out 850 back packs, filled with those all-important essentials and this year hopes to top that figure.

OH WHAT A NIGHT! afpop East Algarve supporting the local communityWhere do I begin? A fabulous turnout, 137 guests attended the afpop East Algarve Annual Full Moon Summer Ball / Party Night at the Faro Catering College. Everyone wined and dined under the light of the moon, and then had a great view of the lunar eclipse and the Blood Moon… which we won’t see again this century.

New Mobile Health Unit for Algarve Oncology AssociationRotary Club Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) is very proud to be involved in the acquisition of a vehicle that will provide mobile screening for lung and skin cancer throughout the Algarve.

This is the first step in a new campaign launched by the Algarve Oncology (AOA) Association “Move-tePelaVida.Algarve” (MoveForYouLife.Algarve). Its purpose is designed to engage with the Algarve population by taking the health services directly to them. This is the way forward to reach a larger number of people and, more importantly, reach those who struggle to access “normal” health services, and to reduce the disparity in social classes accessing health care.

GoldraSummer finally arrived last weekend, and the main task at the Sanctuary now is to keep everyone sheltered, cool and watered. In this edition of GN, you can read about the latest movements in and out, together with a preview of the next, very special, fund-raising event, to take place on 28th July.
