The fourth annual Algarve west coast Charity Fun Walk—otherwise known as a laugh-a-minute fancy dress pub crawl—will take place on Sunday 9 September.

Those taking part dress up in a variety of costumes and take a fun walk in the raise cash for good causes. The sunshine stroll has raised well in excess of €7,000 for local causes over the three previous years since this annual event was started by Vale da Telha resident Cath Baker, who based it on charity pub crawls held in her native Lancashire.
The participants visit 10 bars in three hours during the 3.54km (2.2 miles) walk between Restaurante O Paulo on the picturesque Arrifana promontory and the final ‘watering hole’ at the Restaurante Fonte do Vale in Vale da Telha, where the walkers’ arrival is the signal for a big party with music by Brian DJ Rockindad.

Last September’s walk raised €2,717, €1,041 of which was used to buy an electric wheelchair and ramp for a local boy suffering a degenerative illness.
The remainder again benefitted special needs children at the school in Aljezur.
