Coronavirus – We Need Your Help

To support our local community through the current crisis we have some initiatives underway. These include the delivery of 60,000 medical gloves to Faro Hospital (in liaison with other Rotary Clubs across the Algarve); continued contributions to local food banks; supporting local frontline health workers with personal items such a soap, bottled water, energy bars etc. for use while on duty, and we are actively looking at other ways to support the Estoi community including the local school together with other nearby communities who are impacted by the crisis. The current pandemic has meant that most of our fundraising efforts have had to be cancelled this year. We are therefore appealing for donations to continue our work to support those who need help. Follow this link to a donation form: Many thanks. Your donation will help us to support those most in need during this difficult period. Donate Now   Read More

Dear Supporters In view of the current health crisis, and following national guidelines, we have taken the decision to cancel or postpone scheduled meetings and events until further notice. If you need any more informaton from us in the meantime please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to answer any questions. The Rotary Charity Golf Tournament at Monte Rei Golf and Country Club is scheduled for 27th August. We fully expect this to go ahead as planned but have decided to postpone online registration for the time being as many of our players will want to be sure of their travel arrangements before booking.
