Western Algarve - URGENT APPEAL

Post Posted: Thu Sep 08, 2016 10:23 pm

I am sure you know that the Bombeiros are fighting forest fires up and down the Algarve and there is currently another fire up in Monchique for the second time in a week.

These brave men and woman (mostly volunteers) are exhausted, hungry and thirsty.

We are asking for donations of :

Small bottles of water (not bigger than 500ml),

High energy snacks and drinks,

Tinned food such as ham or tuna,

Fruit,

Fruit juices,

Men’s socks (they get very wet and having wet feet is no fun),

Towels

Sally Henman at Aljezur Alpacas is storing supplies and liaising with the bombeiros and their helpers. To save Vale da Telha residents from having to trek down to the farm, Kate Lang have said she will be a drop off point and then get supplies to Sally as and when there is enough.
Supplies can also be left at the Amovate HQ…the Old School House in Vales, and the supplies will then be transported to Sally. The School House is regularly open now, but if you want to leave supplies when it is closed, there are Committee members phone numbers on the board. For those who wish to donate money towards the appeal, there is a Paypal account :

bombeirosalgarve @ gmail.com

This is a central point and is set up to cover the whole of the Algarve.

If you go into the Bombeiros and give them money they have a lot of the usual paperwork to deal with before any money can be released.

Thanks in advance.
