Palheiro Estate “Help Madeira Campaign” raises €10.474,71 in aid of flood victims

Palheiro Estate, sgps, s.a. launched a campaign to help those affected by the floods that occurred in Madeira on 20th February 2010, raising money for the local branch of the Portuguese Red Cross.

Fund raisers included a tournament at Palheiro Golf, held on March 6th, that was heavily attended by local golfers, a luncheon, a tombola and an auction, with the revenue raised donated in full to this worthy cause.

These actions were supported by “Palheiro friends”, Palheiro Golf Club members and all those connected to Palheiro Estate, both corporate and individual.

The charity bank account “Palheiro Estate Help Madeira Campaign” was operational until the end of March 2010, and the balance of €10,474.71 was transferred to the local branch of the Portuguese Red Cross.

Funds raised were symbolically given to Colonel Ramiro Morna do Nascimento, President of the local Red Cross, by Adam Blandy, Chairman of Palheiro Estate, sgps, s.a., at the Palheiro Golf clubhouse
