This May the Conrad Algarve held its 6th annual charity bike ride in partnership with ACCA Kids, a charity which supports children in need in the Algarve, Portugal. This year’s bike ride had the specific goal of raising enough money to purchase a specially adapted wheelchair for two-year-old Beatriz. Beatriz has been paralysed since suffering epileptic fits immediately after birth and is dependent upon a wheelchair for getting around. Her family could not afford the 4,500 Euros necessary for a wheelchair specially adapted for her requirements. The sponsorship collected so far by the Conrad Algarve and ACCA Kids has enabled the family to buy Beatriz her new chair, which will be delivered to the family any day. So far, the bike ride has raised 4,430 Euros, with more sponsorship still to come. Well done to everyone who was involved in this year’s bike ride.
