Congratulations to ALG’S sister-charity, UPG Portugal!
This year we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the charity that inspired ALG’s launch in the UK and with whom we work daily. On the 26thof September, in a magnificent charity cocktail in Estoril, near Lisbon, we gathered more than 150 UPG and ALG friends who, throughout the years, provided a Great Help to more than 11’500 beneficiaries touched by our two charities, including the almost 900 children sponsored by UPG Portugal in 2014.
The event raised a total of €9.674 (c.£7’700) with event costs only 2% related with catering and sound. The net funds of €9’439 (£’7512) on the evening will be applied directly in Mozambique, on our recent project of School Feeding in the Santa Luísa de Marillac school. This generosity means that 802 children will have a daily lunch for two months in Santa Luísa de Marillac . Many thanks to all for the memorable night, another step towards 10 more years of Little Gestures! Because every children counts. And every Little Gesture Helps.
ALG has been offering this festive calendar to all ALG Friends since 2011. This year, you can also print a high definition version for only 1£!
