WOLF VALLEY CHARITY’S GOLF & FAMILY DAY A GREAT SUCCESS


Over 38,000 euros raised  by the Wolf Valley Charity Day 2012 at Vale do Lobo.


The Algarvian weather, an ideal sun and cool breeze enabled all to relax  and enjoy the stalls, entertainment and activities of the afternoon at the Parque de Golf and Spikes Restaurant Vale do Lobo – A perfect setting.  


With both the Royal and Ocean courses in play  over 180 participants  enjoyed their Golf before supporting a fabulous family day with music by Algarve Juniors and Jazz Band.














The Charity Day is our major fund raising event of the year. This is achieved not only by the generosity of those attending the day but also by the support of public-spirited local businesses who contribute through advertising in the Charity Day Brochure and by donating prizes.


In the past year we have completed the furnishing of the old peoples home in Almancil, provided storage and handling facilities for the Banco Alimentar contra a Fome, which supplies essential food items for those in need, and purchased air-conditioning/heating for the premises of Existir, the centre for the physically disabled in Loule.


In the past much of our funding was directed towards large capital items, for example, specially adapted vehicles to transport the disabled. Now as a result of the economic situation the requests for assistance that we receive from local charities are more numerous and for more basic items to enable their good work to continue.


All monies raised continue to go to help local worthy causes by providing life-changing donations to local charities all year round.
