Helping Hands Algarve Donation

Helping Hands Algarve is a charity that supports a variety of good causes locally. Recently, Phil and Jan Garner from HHA have been organising the distribution of reconditioned firefighters’ kit to Fire Stations in Central Algarve. The kit, including specialised clothing, boots and gloves, was sourced from a Fire Service charity in UK, often for free or at minimal cost.

After time spent on assessing the needs of individual, local Fire Stations, the kit was distributed to the Bombeiros Sapadores and Bombeiros Voluntários in both Faro and Olhão. The Bombeiros Voluntários in Faro gratefully received 50 full sets of clothing and several pairs of boots and gloves which they said would become their front line kit. Phil and Jan, accompanied by members of the HHA Committee, were given a tour of the Faro Voluntarios Station.

Anyone wishing to support Helping Hands Algarve in its work to help so many worthwhile causes could join the next monthly Quiz Night in the old Freguesia office, on Rua Dr Silva Nobre, opposite the Municipal Market in São Brás at 7.45pm on Tuesday 10 July.
