This Christmas is likely to be a very different one for many of us.

In Santo Estevao, the Centro Social Santo Estevao usually organise a wonderful party for sixty of the elderly residents but of course the restrictions around Covid make this impossible.

Instead, with the help of funding from East Algarve Football Club, they will be preparing food and delivering hot meals to people instead. What’s more, they will be doing this throughout the holiday period and not solely as a one off, which is a terrific development.

The foodstuffs purchased by East Algarve Football Club have helped make all this possible. The club has also made an extra donation ensuring that everyone receiving a meal will also receive a lovely tin of biscuits over Xmas period.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed and helped make this a reality.
