We will be "swimming for shoes" again on 1st January, 2014..

Your opportunity to SWIM FOR SHOES where you can have a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and help to raise money for children here who are in need of new shoes.

On New Years Day at 11.00 a.m. on the beach at Armação de Pêra in front of the Holiday Inn Algarve
...
All you need to do is turn up with swimwear, towel and go in for a full swim or just a paddle – the choice is yours as long as part of you gets wet ! Then everyone who takes part can recover in the Holiday Inn Bar and enjoy a warming hot chocolate.

Buying shoes for the children who are in care is an ongoing expense and we want to help as many as possible start 2013 with a new pair of shoes

Adults and children are all welcome to take part on the understanding that you do so at your own risk. If you have family and friends staying over the festive season it will certainly be something different to do!

As this is a charity event we will gratefully accept all donations offered
