Where will you be on Christmas Day?
All you need to do is turn up at 11.00 a.m on Christmas Day with swimwear, towel and go in for a full swim or just a paddle – the choice is yours as long as part of you gets wet! Then we can all recover in the Holiday Inn Algarve bar with a Hot Toddy on Christmas Day and hot chocolate on New Years Day, generously donated by the Holiday Inn Algarve, to everyone who has taken part.
Buying shoes for the children who are in care is an ongoing expense and we want to help as many as possible start 2011 with a new pair of shoes. Each child of school age needs a pair of gym shoes and a pair of trainers. Whilst some clothes can be second hand owning a pair of new shoes helps to ensure the children feel good and fit in at school.
If you would like to see some photographs of the Christmas Day Swim, 2009 please click here.
You will have another opportunity to Swim for Shoes on New Years Day but this time we hope to see you there in fancy dress so start planning your outfit now. As this is a charity event we will gratefully accept all donations offered
For more information please send e-mail to email@example.com
Some of the Christmas, 2008 swimmers
The hotel offered everything anyone could ask for. It was very clean, staff very friendly. We had a corner room which was very spacious, balcony overlooking the beach, as well as a large window at the side of the room over looking the promanade. Lots of variety at breakfast. Had a very enjoyable holiday and would certainly return.

Thank you for your message – well we all arrived our homes safely and are (unfortunately) now back again in business. It was a wonderful week regarding golf, weather, food and and…! We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely come back again within the next years (we are already studying the remaining golf courses at Algarve with a special focus given on Quinta da Ria & Quinta da Cima).
