Have you ever watched TV coverage of keen swimmers jumping or diving into the Serpentine?


Diary dates - two opportunities 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.

These will be on Christmas Day and New Years Day at 11.00 a.m. on the beach at Armação de Pêra in front of the Hotel Garbe.

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 we can all recover in the Hotel Garbe bar where Carlos Simão, the General Manager, has very generously offered a drink of mulled wine on Christmas Day and hot chocolate on New Years Day to everyone who has taken part.

Buying shoes for the children who are in care is an ongoing expense and we want to help as many as possible start 2006 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
