Vintage Tea Party Success!

What a wonderful and successful day was had yesterday at the Vintage Tea Party in celebration of the Queen’s birthday at Hotel Quinta Jacintina.  A beautiful location, relaxed, fun, fantastic tea, cakes and sandwiches, games, auctions, even a star guest doggie…so many generous lovers of animals came to show their support.  We cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness and generosity and we truly hope everyone enjoyed the lovely afternoon.

We also cannot say enough in grateful appreciation of Sally, Quinta Jacintina and the staff at this beautiful boutique hotel.  They organised the entire event for SOS Algarve Animals.  Not only providing the stunning location, impeccable service, organising the games, music, prizes just about everything… but they also have staggered us with their generosity by gifting all that was provided.   The food, drinks, music, even the many prizes have all been provided by Hotel Quinta Jacintina and Sally so that there are absolutely no costs to come off the amount raised and every penny raised will go towards the sterilisation of cats and dogs in the Algarve.  Their love and support of animals in the Algarve, and this tremendously important cause, is without comparison.

An astonishing 7282 euros was raised!   Every penny of this money will go towards the sterilisation of cats and dogs across the algarve… either on the street or from low income families who cannot otherwise afford the operation.  Not only helping with reducing the population of unwanted dogs and cats in the Algarve….. but with making the quality of life for each and every dog and cat helped that much better.

An immense thank you also must go to the many volunteers for their kindness and tireless manning of the many games….Kev, Niki, Nicola, Shauna, Jenny, Richard, David and Liz… to name but a few, but there were many more helping behind the scnes.

Thank you to everyone for your support, generosity and help in making the day such a success.
