East Algarve Walking Football and East Algarve FC have collected donations worth £500 for the Disasters Emergency Committee to help those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

The subs collected from members in February, along with additional donations made by individuals, raised €448 that converted to £400. With the addition of Gift Aid this means £500 will benefit the disaster appeal.

Well done to all concerned, especially Chris Wright for organising the collection.
