We have a couple of mini tournaments coming up in March and April against the Mighty Millers/Browns, and Cirencester/Phoenix Blues.
From February 3rd 2020, the over 50s walking football sessions at Tavira will be back to a Monday morning from 9.30 am. Please let everyone know.
As SC Olhanense youth team require the pitch from 10.30 am at Olhao on Tuesday December 31st, we have decided to start the over 60s session on that day at 9 am and finish early. Thursday January 2nd will take place as normal.
Roy Clark and Jonathan Syed were invited to Centro de Saude in Tavira to discuss with a Nurse in the Diabetes Team how best the money raised to date could be spent.
There are four children with diabetes who have been identified as being in need of extra equipment to help them manage their diabetes better. All of those identified to date come from backgrounds where the funds needed are unavailable to them, but are of sufficient levels of managing their diabetes whereby the extra equipment would be of tremendous value.
At this stage it has been agreed that the Diabetes team will make known to us the exact equipment needed and EAWF will purchase the equipment and this will then be supplied to the young people in question.
The purchase of this equipment is not likely to exceed the total funds raised and further meetings will take place to identify other diabetes-related items that are needed.
The Diabetic Team are extremely grateful for the generosity and offer of help afforded to them.
Many, many thanks to all of you who have helped raised this money; more news will follow in the New Year.
Players, officials and friends of East Algarve Walking Football celebrated their sixth annual Christmas Dinner at the Xicken Piri Piri Restaurant near Tavira.
We are planning some first aid courses in the New Year for anyone that is interested.
The training will last 6 hours and will cover basic first aid and resuscitation, with practical tuition.
Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance.
Please note this is not a certificate of competence and as such candidates will not be a “registered first aider” but will have received very important first aid skills and knowledge.
Could those interested in receiving the training please contact Peter Diprose at a football session or call on 916 730 675
