Charity Festive Swims

Swim for Shoes. 2015/16 the annual event to swim or paddle in the Atlantic Ocean has, this year, so far raised over 800 Euros for new shoes for children in care.  

Many congratulations and thanks to all those who participated.

The money will be used to buy shoes during the year for the teenagers.  It will be divided between  A Gaivota, Santa Casa in Albufeira and Espaço Amigos in Armação de Pêra.  Each child at school needs a pair of trainers and plimsolls. 

Certificates were awarded to all those who got wet and everyone enjoyed a "Hot Chocolate " in the Holiday Inn Algarve bar afterwards.

A big thank you to everyone who took part, those who watched, the media for helping with the publicity, Dave Sheldrake ( and Diogo Correia  for photographing the two events  and to everyone who donated so generously.
